Frankie Corio, Paul Mescal: Aftersun (A24)

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

Aftersun. “We’re on childhood time, and the clock ticks according to Sophie’s biorhythms, somehow slowed down by unspoken worry about her dad.”

A new “Music and the Movies” episode this week, focusing on tuneage from Frankenstein pictures – yup, we’ve got everything from Franz Waxman to Peter Boyle. Listen to that one at the Voice of Vashon page, or whatever happens to be temporarily archived there at the moment.

Scarecrow Academy’s free online semester “Science Fiction and the Director” continues tomorrow, Saturday November 5, at 2 pm Pacific Time, with a zoom conversation about Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. We’ve been having a good time with these sessions, so don’t miss a discussion of one of the most influential sci-fi pictures ever made. Register via here.
