Wind Castle (This Week’s Movies)


Jeremy Renner, Gil Birmingham: Wind River (courtesy Acacia Entertainment)

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

Wind River. “A gratifyingly solid movie for grown-ups.”

The Glass Castle. “Woody Harrelson gives another huge, fearless performance, with maximum turbulence and precious little order. He’s the main reason to see this uneven but forceful film.”

Join the talkers at Framing Pictures tonight at 7 p.m. for another session at Scarecrow Video. From the FP Facebook page: “What makes a movie come to life in a uniquely cinematic way? That was the founding principle and has been the running theme of Framing Pictures. This month we take our cue from the passing of Jeanne Moreau, who, as the boys in Jules and Jim say, “taught us Shakespeare”–and maybe taught the cinema as well. In theaters now, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit merit particular attention. And because movies are an eternal present tense, we’ll probably tip our hats to a few vintage titles coming out on disk. None of which rules out the possibility that *you* might introduce something entirely unanticipated into the discussion. But for that, you have to join us at 7 p.m. Friday, August 11, Scarecrow Video Screening Room, 5030 Roosevelt Way N.E. For you, no charge.”
