Socialisme of the Planet of the Apes (Weekly Links)

"Apes" turning point or "Film Socialisme" montage element?

Links to review I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes. “There really is something kind of epic about seeing the simian heroes swarming across an American landmark.”

Film Socialisme. “It’s Godard’s ‘Odyssey’: a journey around Europe, weighing in at different ports and finding strange alien visions at each.” 

Another Earth. “Fantastical Earth II concept.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about drive-in movies, with notes on how to place the Drizzle Guard on your hood, as well as a couple of “Let’s All Go to the Lobby” bumpers. Talk is archived here; the movie bit kicks in around the 16-minute mark.

At What a Feeling!, a twofer review from 1987: the surfing picture North Shore and the slob comedy Disorderlies, starring the Fat Boys and Ralph Bellamy.
