The Upside Divide (This Week’s Movies)


Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart: The Upside (STX Films)

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

Divide and Conquer: The Story of Roger Ailes. “Anytime you might be in danger of sympathizing with Ailes, the movie provides testimony from one of the women he pressured into having sex with him.”

And here’s my article on a handful of movie actors and actresses who departed the world in 2018 – a list not meant to be definitive, just a collection of people who left an impression on me.

Another Seasoned Ticket entry for the Scarecrow Video blog, this time an experiment in noir prosody, thanks to some old notes from teaching a Seattle University class on Film Noir. Dig it here.
