On September 19 and 20, 2001, audiences at New York City’s Town Hall welcomed Laurie Anderson home. Several weeks earlier, the performance artist and her band (Skuli


Windtalkers (2002)

Though it might be argued that Nicolas Cage roaring and contorting in slow motion makes for good action cinema, it's hardly the basis for a thoughtful interrogation of how war works, how it shatters (or otherwise forever changes) participants, and reinforces systemic racism.


Sade (2000)

Scooby Doo (2002)

The main problem here is the script, or the lack thereof.


The Steamroller and the Violin (1960/2002)

Truly, a genius on his way to being discovered lies within this sweet film.


Black Hawk Down (2001)

An action movie dressed up like an art film, 'Black Hawk Down' is not about betrayal or anger, but heroism and patriotic fervor.


The Bourne Identity (2002)

The CIA here is an intensely low-down, sinister, and duplicitous organization.

The Cooper Temple Clause: See This Through and Leave

Glam anthems and hardcore rants. The whir of techno and the crunch of britpop. Emo-boy crying and scary stalker screeds. The Cooper Temple Clause are
