Alexander Skarsgard: The Northman (Aidan Monaghan/Focus Features)

My piece for the Scarecrow blog this week, and etc.

The Northman. “It is disappointing that The Northman goes past what would have been a truly radical ending and extends itself for a zany climax that qualifies as Valhalla porn.”

I have a new episode of “The Music and the Movies” this week: a look at music associated with the films of Nicolas Cage. Listen to it at the Voice of Vashon website, or, if its online time has expired, see what else is up there.
