Invisible (This Week’s Movies)


Mia Goth, Anya Taylor-Joy: Emma (Focus Features)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald, and etc.

The Invisible Man. “That rare film in which screen space becomes a living, vital presence. ”

Emma. “There are so many bright young actors here, this movie could well become the Dazed and Confused of British cinema.”

Seberg. “Seberg remains a bit of a blank.”

Join us Saturday (2/29) afternoon at 2 for another session of Scarecrow Academy, where we’ll speak of Jacques Tourneur’s I Walked with a Zombie (1943), offered up for “The Art in Horror: Horror and the Director.” It’s a free event, at Scarecrow Video.

For the Scarecrow Video blog, I revive an interview with Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell and his partner in crime James Wan, on the occasion of their visiting Seattle for the release of Saw in 2004. Read it here.

At What a Feeling! this week, we take a look back at more 1980s reviews: Jean-Jacques Annaud’s The Bear; Lindsay Anderson’s Britannia Hospital; Robert Townsend’s Eddie Murphy Raw; and Tony Scott’s Beverly Hills Cop II.
