KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON

A short list of movies this week. Between deadlines and gearing up for Stumptown Comics Fest, I haven't had a lot of time to watch stuff.

Let this also be a reminder: if you're near Portland, come and see me at the show. Table J-10 with Joëlle Jones.

Now, onto movie reviews...



THIS WEEK IN THEATRES...

* The Angels' Share, a heartwarming Ken Loach dramedy about a whisky heist. Let me in on that action!

* Indie & Arthouse for the Oregonian, 4/26/13: Emily Mortimer in the historical drama Leonie, an indie debut called Everything Went Down, and Peter Gabriel in concert.

UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS:

* The Suitor. Pierre Etaix's first, the last for me to review.

THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS:

* Not Fade Away, a rock 'n' roll drama from Sopranos-creator David Chace.

* Once More, with Feeling! a middling Stanley Donen effort from 1959.

Current Soundtrack: Orange Juice, "Consolation Prize;" The Casuals, "Jesamine;" Nolan Porter, "Keep On Keepin' On;" Ronnie Hawkins, "Mary Lou"
