Remember Midnight Light (This Week’s Movies)

Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Hiddleston: I Saw the Light

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

Midnight Special. “Nichols loves his omens; when it comes to earthquakes and fiery things dropping from the heavens, he’s your guy.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly review here.)

Remember. “Slightly crazy premise.”

I Saw the Light. “Hiddleston and Olsen shine in some good domestic scenes.”

Baskin. “Unpleasantness abounds.”

Advance warning: NEXT Friday, April 8, 7 p.m., the talkers in Framing Pictures will re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video. We’ll look at a new video release of Howard Hawks’s Only Angels Have Wings (why not just call it the greatest movie ever and be done with it?) and a blu-ray for Ivan Passer’s Cutter’s Way, plus thoughts on new films by Richard Linklater, Jeff Nichols, and Arnaud Desplechin – and whatever you’d like to talk about. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.

Check the Overlook Podcast for a new edition, going live today.
