American television journalism is tarnished. There is just too much time spent riling us up. The bright spots, Stewart, Colbert and Oliver. Jon Stewart’s new film, “Rosewater” is as much about American media as it is about Iran’s actions.
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.”
Steve has the honor of talking with John Cleese November 16th sponsored by the University Bookstore.
