Fantastic Loving (This Week’s Movies)


Ruth Negga, Joel Edgerton: Loving (courtesy Focus Features)

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

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. “Lacks the coming-of-age resonance of the HP series, but this first chapter is good fun.”

Loving. “A dour, mumbling tone poem.”

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. “I sensed I was missing part of the experience.”

Ixcanul. “An age-old story is played out among the cinders.”

The talkers in Framing Pictures re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video tonight, November 18. Join us for talk about new movies such as Arrival, Aquarius, Loving, Moonlight, plus a recollection of a French New Wave giant, cinematographer Raoul Coutard, who died last week. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.

This weekend I’ll be introducing Bogdan Mirica’s film Dogs at the Romanian Film Festival in Seattle; the fest is packed with intriguing titles from Romania and visits from filmmakers. Dogs goes Saturday at 1:05 p.m. and Sunday at 12:20 p.m., both at the Uptown theater. Lots more info here.
