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

Our Little Sister. “Even death is part of the flow, part of the process of getting along and finding a place in the world.”

Pete’s Dragon. “An offbeat underwhelmer with moments of quiet charm.”

Anthropoid. “Clichéd: The movie is all jiggly handheld camerawork, and dark rooms, and breathless close-ups.”

Indignation. “There’s something glorious about a conversation that goes on, and on, and on, especially in an age where the conventional wisdom in movies is to keep it short and to the point.”

Florence Foster Jenkins. “Perhaps it takes someone with vocal talent to truly channel terrible singing.”

Tonight, Friday August 12, 7 p.m., the talkers in Framing Pictures will re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video. We’ll scan the great career of Warren Oates, consider Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new film Our Little Sister, and find out what you’d like to talk about. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.
