At Guts and Grog Reviews, the epic Horror With Training Wheels theme week continues, including my post on the 1983 Disney kid-oriented horror flick Something Wicked This Way Comes. Check it out to learn more about my (possibly imaginary) love affair with Jonathan Pryce, eight-legged Freudian secrets, plus you’ll find out which Mayberry, R.F.D. alum had a tiny but pivotal role in the film.
Also this week, my review of Hong Sang-soo’s most recent film In Another Country, starring Isabelle Huppert and Kwon Hae-hyo. It’s a deceptively light film, on the surface merely three barely-connected tales by a young screenwriter looking to calm her nerves, but it soon gives way to a perceptive look at the writing process and the perils of love and communication.
Spectrum Culture is also running a Best Comedic Performances feature, currently up to the 1950s with prior articles on the 1940s and 1930s. It’s a fun series, and a few of the blurbs are by yours truly.
