Burgundy Mommy (This Week’s Movies)

Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D'Anna: The Duke of Burgundy

Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D’Anna: The Duke of Burgundy

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

The Duke of Burgundy. “Plenty to interest lepidopterists and kinksters alike.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly link here.)

Mommy. “Helter-skelter.” (Weekly link here.)

2015 Oscar Nominated Documentary Shorts. “Serious.” (Weekly link here.)

Feb. 10, join me in the Buckeye State at the Lee Road branch library in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, for “The Movie Mashup: Wild Literary Adaptations on Film.” We’ll look some extreme examples of literary adaptation in film (how The Tempest became Forbidden Planet, how The Odyssey became O Brother, Where Art Thou) and what that tells us about both art forms. The talk is free, and begins at 7 p.m.; more info here.

Feb. 11, I’ll give the same talk at the Hancock Co. Central Library in Greenfield, Indiana, at 7 p.m – via Skype. Come on by, and we’ll virtually meet. More info here.

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I contrast the styles of The Duke of Burgundy and Mommy; give a listen here.
