Episode # 41 Interstellar Interstitial

Who doesn’t want to take a trip off this crazy rock? But a space movie has to really make us feel like we are blasting off.  Does “Interstellar” have the rocket fuel to get us  beyond the pull of our disbelief and out into the void where good stories bop about?

Robert Horton  reviews movies for The Herald (Everett, Washington) and Seattle Weekly.  He has contributed many pieces to Film Comment since 1990 as well as other publications. He is the author of the  “Cultographies” volume on Frankenstein (Wallflower Press, 2010), “Billy Wilder: Interviews” (University Press of Mississippi, 2002), and had work included in Best American Movie Writing: 1999.

He is the co-author of the zombie Western comic book, Rotten (Moonstone Books, ongoing), and runs the “Magic Lantern” monthly series of film lectures at the Frye Art Museum. His website The Crop Duster is a busy collection of short takes, long pieces, and compulsive lists.

He is on TV over at The Seattle Channel as well with another episode of “Framing Pictures.”
