Insider Baseball, Stranger-style
1. Police Beat, written by our own Charles Mudede, is the first real Seattle movie. It’s a beautiful document, and everyone should go see it. Yes, it has flaws. So does every movie. Not every movie maps the inner life of a city by capturing the beauty of its physical being. To every one involved with this quantum leap for Seattle film, massive congratulations.
2. Annie Wagner is on the phone interviewing Miranda July right this second (as Slog comes full circle), and is nervous and blushing and giggly and excited. It’s totally adorable.
