Kitchen Art (This Week’s Movies)


Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish: The Kitchen (Warner Bros.)

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

The Kitchen. “A hurried crime spree with too many unanswered questions.”

The Art of Racing in the Rain. “I kept wishing a talking cat would saunter in to poke fun at all this sentimental gush.”

ECCO. “Slowly — very slowly — moves into the kind of ambitious territory Christopher Nolan likes to stick his nose into.”

For this week’s Scarecrow Video blog, I contribute a Seasoned Ticket post on Last Year at Marienbad, playing this week at the Beacon Cinema. Read it here.

Night Blaze (This Week’s Movies)


Ben Dickey, Alia Shawkat: Blace (courtesy IFC Films)

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

Blaze. “Blaze looks and sounds great; some of its images have a sensitively chosen-yet-offhand texture that seems to spring straight out of a vintage country song.” (Herald link here.)

Night School. “Hart’s shtick, in which he frequently ends up being the butt of a joke, is still strong.”
