Garden Named Pan (This Week’s Movies)

Slime mold. The Creeping Garden.

Slime mold. The Creeping Garden.

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

Pan. “Wright really wanted to be Steven Spielberg.”

The Creeping Garden. “The Blob was less fantastic than anyone dreamed.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly link here.)

He Named Me Malala. “Too distinctive to merely stand on a pedestal for a do-gooder movie.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly link here.)

I spoke with Katy Sewall, host of the expat podcast “The BitterSweet Life,” about being in Scotland on sabbatical and some movie things as well. Listen to our conversation here.

Early notice: Tuesday Oct. 20 at 5:30 I’ll be at the Renton History Museum to present “Alien Encounters: Sci-Fi Movies and the Cold War Culture of the 1950s,” a look at how flying saucer films reflected the anxieties of the atomic age. The talk is free with regular museum admission; more info here.
