Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.

They didn't need a presentation by the mayor to give them the keys to Las Vegas; they owned Vegas in all of its bohemian glory.

Undercover Brother (2002)

Peppered with Chappellian hilarities (and the man can riff), it is more like Austin Powers than a hard-hitting satire, minus Mike Meyers' mania, plus Lee's deft direction and Griffin's own brand of energy.


Late Marriage (Hatouna Mehuheret) (2001)

A new comedy from Israel, could be funnier in a lot of ways, and more serious in others.


Profit and Nothing But! / A Grin Without a Cat / Diamonds and Rust - PopMatters Film Review )

At their best, documentaries can offer revelatory vistas of neglected worlds. These films offer singular perspectives -- they make journalism and artistic expression seem inextricable.


CQ (2001)

The subject of CQ is Paul, artist, coffee-drinker, American in Paris.

Doves: The Last Broadcast

The Last Broadcast is far from a poor album. In fact, it has the elements of a great album, but it sounds like they got stuck halfway through or decided they had enough singles and cobbled the rest together hastily.


The Chieftains: The Chieftains 7 / The Chieftains 9: Boil the Breakfast Early

The Sum of All Fears (2002)

Tom Clancy's novels and the movies they spawn have never had much truck with credibility.


Bartleby (2001)

[The office] is a penitentiary for the non-criminal, and a continually witty and dry visual joke.


Astro Boy New Adventures (Shin Tetsuwan Atom) - Volume 1 - PopMatters Film Review )

I'm about to argue the cultural significance of a cartoon about a robot boy with machine-guns in his butt-cheeks.
