Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly and etc.
The Boy Next Door. “The young man needs help roasting his chicken.”
Jan. 23 & 24, I’ll be part of a Frankenstein weekend at SIFF Cinema. Friday night (that’s tonight!) I’ll talk between a double bill of Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, with a few copies of my Frankenstein book on hand for sale and signing; Saturday at 11 a.m. I’ll lead a Cinema Dissection session with Bride of Frankenstein (this is an event that involves a shot-by-shot close reading of the film). A little more info here.
In anticipation, the Seattle Weekly has excerpted the opening 1000 words or so of the book, a section you can read online, too.
At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I talk about American Sniper and Blackhat; check out the conversation here.
Wednesday night, watch Psycho and join a conversation following the film at Seattle University. The film screens at Wyckoff Auditorium, Wednesday Jan. 28 at 7 p.m.; Robert C. Cumbow and I will talk about the Hitchcock masterpiece immediately after.
