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

47 Meters Down. “The dialogue is terrible. Moore and Holt are likable enough actresses, but they sound like Romy and Michele on a deep-diving expedition.”

Beatriz at Dinner. “The movie prepares us for catharsis, but this proves to be a fake-out. Instead, a less satisfying and more haunting finale awaits.”

The most recent Framing Pictures panel is watchable online at the Seattle Channel website and viewable, TV-wise, on the Seattle Channel over the course of the next few days. The panelists (Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, Bruce Reid, and me) sort through the new Twin Peaks, Wonder Woman, plus new home-vid of Nicholas Ray’s They Live by Night and Sam Peckinpah’s The Ballad of Cable Hogue.
