Impossible Filmworker (This Week’s Movies)

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

Mission: Impossible – Fallout. “If a scene calls for people to parachute onto a building from 30,000 feet, why not throw in a lightning storm?” (Weekly link here.)

Filmworker. “A fascinating study in movie lore and human psychology. ”

For my Seasoned Ticket series at the Scarecrow Video blog, I revived a 2000 interview with John Frankenheimer (whose splendid return to form Ronin is playing at the Grand Illusion in Seattle). He talks about the time Sinatra pulled out a $2 million check, and about identifying with the professionalism of the De Niro character in Ronin. Read it here.
