Phantom Paddington (This Week’s Movies)


Vicky Krieps, Daniel Day-Lewis: Phantom Thread (courtesy Focus Features)

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

Phantom Thread. “Blooms with possibilities the longer it goes on.”

Paddington 2. “Supplies a happy ration of kid-friendly slapstick, grown-up jokes, and a batch of the most recognizable actors in Britain.”

For Film Comment, I interviewed cinematographer Charlotte Bruus Christensen in November at the Camerimage Film Festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The enthusiastic DP speaks of her work on Molly’s Game, Fences, The Hunt, and other films, and describes growing up on a Danish farm and the pleasures of telling a story with pictures.
