Ip Lamb World (This Week’s Movies)

ipman3

Donnie Yen, Ip Man 3

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

Ip Man 3. “Wherever in the world it plays, it will play like gangbusters.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly link here.)

Lamb. “Intentions get waylaid by the sheer weirdness of the situation.”

The World of Kanako. “The battering-ram violence is relentless.”

For Film Comment, I wrote about Radu Jude’s Aferim!, a remarkable Romanian “Western” in widescreen black-and-white. It’s posted here.

Steve Scher and I have another Overlook Podcast up and running; this one looks at Ip Man 3 and eagerly anticipates the new blu-ray of Wim Wenders’ The American Friend, among other things. Listen here.
