Solo Beast (This Week’s Movies)

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

Solo: A Star Wars Story. “If the resulting film isn’t as zesty as The Last Jedi, it at least provides a solid night of thrills and chills — which was what George Lucas’s original Star Wars was supposed to be about, anyway.”

Beast. “The premise is a little like Nicholas Ray’s great film noir In a Lonely Place (1950), where we watch Humphrey Bogart begin a romance with Gloria Grahame while he’s under suspicion for murder—except that Beast shows us the dynamic from the female perspective.”

Another page from “Seasoned Ticket,” my blog series for Scarecrow Video. This one’s devoted to Hong Sang-soo, whose new film The Day After plays at the Northwest Film Forum this weekend. Read it here.
