Confidential Assassin Spectre (This Week’s Movies)

Daniel Craig, Spectre

Daniel Craig, Spectre

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

Spectre. “A little more of a Bond picture – there’s less fretting about the hero’s state of mind, for starters.”

The Assassin. “The movie’s countless fogbanks and smoke clouds become as much its subject as the petty intrigues of some long-forgotten political dispute.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly link here.)

The Wonders. “No travelogue under the Tuscan sun, just an oddball coming-of-age tale that creates loopy magic by the end.” (Weekly link here.)

Tab Hunter Confidential. “An awkward young man who seems to have wandered into the limelight by accident.”

Monday Nov. 9 at 6:30 pm I’ll be at Federal Way 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.
