Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.
Café Society. “The film finally founders on its inability to find a groove.”
Absolutely Fabulous. “At times they need no dialogue to get laughs.”
Lights Out. “The film exhausts most of the possibilities for how light can be generated and extinguished.”
Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words. “Covers only a portion of the man’s Zappa-ness. But it’s an entertaining start.”
Wednesday night, July 27, I’ll be moderating a special members’ event for Scarecrow Video at the Northwest Film Forum, in the company of University of Washington professor Louis Chude-Sokei and Zola Mumford from the Langston Hughes Film Festival. The event will preview an important new DVD/blu-ray release from Kino Classics: “Pioneers of African-American Cinema.” It’s a much-needed five-disc set featuring restored features by black filmmakers from the 1910s to the 1940s. To attend, you have to be a $100-level Scarecrow member (or NWFF member), so as a board member of the Scarecrow Video Project, I can say it’s a good excuse to become a member. There’s more info here.
