Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.
The Wolf of Wall Street. “All this sound and fury falls short.”
Her. “This is a movie of breathtaking design and conventional ideas.”
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. “You can feel the movie straining to be something special.”
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. “The self-imposed tip-toeing required in the Great Man school of moviemaking.”
Grudge Match. “Doesn’t offend, although it rarely comes to life, either.”
Oh, and it’s Ten Best time, isn’t it? Here’s that article, with best and worst included.
