Vicky Krieps, Hold Me Tight (Kino Lorber)

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

Hold Me Tight. “The director, the indispensable French actor Mathieu Amalric, is very precise in his way of seeing, which suits a movie that can’t escape being vague about its reality.”

I have a new episode of “The Music and the Movies” this week, a look at the films of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, inspired by Ethan Hawke’s documentary series The Last Movie Stars. We have stuff from their shared projects, solo gigs, a little of Woodward’s narration on The Age of Innocence, and of course the theme from Exodus. Listen at the Voice of Vashon website; this episode will be online for ten days or so.

Scarecrow Video’s Zeitgeist ’22! series is returning on Saturday September 17 (that’s next Saturday!) at 2 pm Pacific Time, with an online presentation titled “100 Years of Nosferatu.” Join us for a look at how F.W. Murnau’s silent horror classic seems to have earned eternal life. The talk is free; here’s the link.
