Wonder Can Wait (This Week’s Movies)


Gal Gadot: Wonder Woman (courtesy Warner Bros. Entertainment)

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

Wonder Woman. “Gadot is hugely appealing in the role. She and Jenkins have leaned toward Christopher Reeve’s first Superman as a model for how to play the role: strong but innocent, a fish out of water.”

Paris Can Wait. “Blissfully unaware of its own comfy worldview.”

Early warning: Framing Pictures re-convenes next Friday. From Facebook: “Framing Pictures has heard the owls, and accept our mission to meditate on the quarter-century-later return of Twin Peaks. Additionally, we are delighted that the neglected Peckinpah beauty The Ballad of Cable Hogue is getting a Bluray release, and Nicholas Ray’s They Live by Night–among the most auspicious of feature-directing debuts–is coming out on Criterion. Come help us talk about these and more, 7 p.m. Friday, June 9, Scarecrow Video Screening Room, 5030 Roosevelt Way N.E. Still a bargain at $00.00.”
