I haven't had a substantial amount of movie reviews to warrant an update the last couple of weeks, but with my full review of The Purge being posted at the Oregonian, it was time.
Sooo...go see The Purge with Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. Let me tell you why.
Though, if I had to direct you toward one film, it would be Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha.
My recent Indie & Arthouse columns:
* May 23, 2013: Douglas Fairbanks as The Thief of Bagdad; Paul McCartney gives us a Wings Rockshow; the Experimental Film Festival 2013.
* May 30, 2013: Take a visit to Skull World; look at the making of two different forms of art with Becoming Traviata and Bel Borba Aqui; get gay married for a greencard in I Do.
* June 7, 2013: underground crime fiction by way of Flamingos; the activist-focused environmental documentary Elemental; and Stress Position, an agitprop art school prank.
And for recent DVDs, you could do worse than Save the Date with Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan, co-written and featuring artwork by cartoonist Jeffrey Brown.
