Scarlet Johansson, Avengers: Age of Ultron

Scarlet Johansson, Avengers: Age of Ultron

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

Avengers: Age of Ultron. “It’s possible to approve of how such a billion-dollar apparatus can be this fast and breezy.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly link here.)

And a summer preview thingie for the Herald.

On Wednesday May 6 I’ll be at the Architectural Association in London, giving a public lecture titled “What Time Is It There? Time as a Character in Contemporary Films.” The talk looks at how recent filmmakers – from Bela Tarr to Christopher Nolan, with a detour for Richard Linklater – have used Time as subject and method. The talk is at 6 p.m. at the Lecture Hall. More info here.

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I keep track of movie comings and goings. Some thoughts about the centenary of Orson Welles are contained in today’s episode – check it here.
