Links to my reviews published this week in Seattle Weekly and the Herald, and etc.
American Sniper. “A measured directorial approach that is likely to disappoint those looking for either a patriotic tribute to the troops or a critique of war and its effects.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly version here.)
Blackhat. “An occasionally intoxicating mess.”
Paddington. “Winningly bright and funny.”
Today, Friday, Jan. 16, join the talkers of Framing Pictures as we sort through the holiday-season aftermath. Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy and I will meet at the Screening Room in Scarecrow Video at 5 p.m. for this free event; drinks will be on sale. More details on our Facebook page.
At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I sift through the Oscar nominations announced yesterday, and find them mostly business as usual. Listen here.
Last week I dropped by KIRO radio’s “Mark Rahner Show” again, and we talked about Selma, Inherent Vice, and whatnot; the conversation is archived here.
