Deepwater Dressmaker (This Week’s Movies)


Kate Winslet: The Dressmaker

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

Deepwater Horizon. “The excitement generated by each crash is perhaps just a tad unholy.”

The Dressmaker. “Jocelyn Moorhouse gleefully blends laughter and shocks. She works with a scalpel – the characters, the one-liners, and of course the costumes are shaped with precision.”

A Man Called Ove. “The whole thing comes across like a Swedish Gran Torino, but without the guns and gangs.”

The Lovers and the Despot. “A true Cold War cloak-and-dagger affair.”

The most recent session of Framing Pictures is online; in this one, the panel talks about Sully, Hell or High Water, Disorder, and an appreciation of Gene Wilder. You can watch here; it’s also playing on the Seattle Channel this week.
