Chi-Janis (This Week’s Movies)


Angela Bassett: Chi-Raq

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

Chi-Raq. “You can’t help keeping your eyes glued to the screen.”

Janis: Little Girl Blue. “Seeing Joplin’s parents in Eisenhower-era photos gives some sense of what kind of bombshell went off in their family when Janis arrived.”

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I gather four movie essentials to ponder for the week, including some words on Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq. Listen here.

Early warning: Next Friday, Dec. 11, 7 p.m., the film critics of Framing Pictures will re-convene for a conversation in our new second-Friday-of-the-month slot at Scarecrow Video. Join Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, and my own self as we sift through some of the best films of 2015.
