Nocturnal Rules Allied (This Week’s Movies)


Marion Cotillard, Brad Pitt: Allied (courtesy Daniel Smith/Paramount Pictures)

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

Allied. “Glamour is part of the appeal – and also part of the movie’s game of asking whether a pretty face could be a mask for deception.”

Rules Don’t Apply. “It’s a relief to see a Hollywood film that doesn’t have anything to prove, or even a need to please—this feels like the least audience-tested movie in years.”

Moana. “The turquoise sea comes to life in all kinds of ways.”

Bad Santa 2. “Can’t help feeling like more of the same.”

Nocturnal Animals. “Finding the substance beneath those surfaces is not easy.”

The Love Witch. “Really knows what it’s doing. And it’s hilariously funny, sometimes in an almost subliminal way.”
