Carey Mulligan, Ed Oxenbould: Wildlife (courtesy IFC Films)

Links to my reviews published in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

Bohemian Rhapsody. “Has a dutiful, respectable air about it.” (Herald link here.)

Wildlife. “While it has a formal visual style, as though emphasizing how trapped its characters are, it really comes alive in the energy between the performers onscreen.”

For Scarecrow Video’s blog, I submit a Seasoned Ticket session that looks back at Jim Jarmusch’s early work. Read it here.

Double-X Blended (This Week’s Movies)

James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart: Future and Past X

James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart: Future and Past X

Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

X-Men: Days of Future Past. “A return to form.”

Blended. “A loose, good-natured spirit.”

The Double. “Lacks the slap of the truly revelatory.”

Cold in July. “Uneven but densely-packed.”

I used to talk with Steve Scher on the radio; now we podcast. Join us for this week’s installment of the Overlook Podcast as we sit outside at a French bistro (in Seattle, but still) and wonder about the allure of French movies. Listen here.
