Shelley Odyssey (This Week’s Movies)


Elle Fanning, Mary Shelley (courtesy IFC Films)

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

Mary Shelley. “When your Polidori is deeper and more poetic than Shelley and Byron, your movie has a problem.”

2001: A Space Odyssey. “I wonder how the perversity of 2001 would go over now.” (Herald link here.)

For Scarecrow’s blog, I contribute a Seasoned Ticket post, which mentions a few depictions of the “haunted summer” of 1816 with Mary Shelley and her bad boys. Read it here.
