Government Dogs (This Week’s Links)


Emma Suarez: Julieta (Manolo Pavon, Sony Pictures Classics)

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

Julieta. “Each shot is a formal arrangement of color and composition—actually, each shot is practically a floral arrangement, given how pretty it all looks.”

Gold. “McConaughey is unleashed, and the result ain’t pretty.”

A Dog’s Purpose. “Through every step of philosophical flapdoodle peddled in A Dog’s Purpose, Hallstrom manages to maintain some level of dignity.”

All Governments Lie: Truth, Deception, and the Spirit of I.F. Stone. “Filmmakers can’t possibly predict what the world will look like when their movie actually gets released. Sometimes you get lucky.”

Early notice: Sunday February 12 I’ll give a talk for Historic Seattle entitled “Shot on Location: Architectural Landmarks on Film,” at 2 p.m. Check the details here, or at the Northwest Film Forum’s calendar.
