Labyrinth Rock (This Week’s Movies)

Bill Murray: Rock the Kasbah

Bill Murray: Rock the Kasbah

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

Rock the Kasbah. “Murray’s funny and loose, wrapped in his pink-tinted sunglasses and showbiz smarm.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly link here.)

Labyrinth of Lies. “Measures how the ghosts of war nag at the survivors.” (Weekly link here.)

Extraordinary Tales. “Some intoxicating stuff along the way.”

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I locate four essential things to consider for this movie week, and suggest that The Walk has more cinematic magic than The Martian, despite what you’ve heard. Tune in here.

Saturday Oct. 24 at 2 pm I’ll be at Bellevue Library to present “Before Ultron: Artificial Intelligence in the Movies,” a look at the most memorable manifestations of A.I. in film history, from the malfunctioning HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey to the perfect companion in Her. The talk is free; more info here.

Thursday Oct. 29 at 7 pm I’ll be at Kent Library to present “Before Ultron: Artificial Intelligence in the Movies,” a look at the most memorable manifestations of A.I. in film history, from the malfunctioning HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey to the perfect companion in Her.
