Logan (James Mangold, 2017). A Marvel movie with a clear focus and a simple emotional through-line. What gives here? It’s also R-rated, so some of the punches actually land with authority. (full review 3/3)
The Crop Duster has two goals. One is to organize links to my critical work: reviews written for The Herald (Everett, Washington) and Seattle Weekly; and public appearances and TV jobs. Selected past work for Film Comment and elsewhere is also linkified. You may also link to my website of 1980s reviews and learn more about my book on Frankenstein and my graphic novel, ROTTEN.
The second goal is to keep a daily record of films watched, annotated with brisk, brief comments. It's a slightly more advanced version of the movie list I kept, in Flair pen, thumbtacked next to my bed when I was twelve.
The long-suppressed 1877 diary of a ROTTEN agent, now available for the first time!
