Maid in Manhattan (2002)

This 'ethnic' modification of 'Pretty Woman'-meets-'Working Girl' uses the 'iconic' Lopez strategically.


Intacto (2001)

Max von Sydow paints an empathetic portrait of the terrible consequences of misused power.


Drumline (2002)

Its enthusiasm is hard to resist.


About Schmidt (2002)

The expression on Schmidt's face every time he encounters another crisis does not convey anger, but befuddlement.

Teleparody:  Predicting/Preventing the TV Discourse of Tomorrow Edited by Angela Hague and David Lav

The collection of faux scholarly reviews at times even references itself.


Ready, Steady, Go! The Smashing Rise And Giddy Fall of Swinging London by Shawn Levy

The most successful amongst them possessed 'Face'.


Our Lady of the Lost and Found: A Novel of Mary, Faith, and Friendship by Diane Schoemperlen

Nader: Crusader, Spoiler, Icon by Justin Martin

By the time Clinton arrived, Nader was a has-been.


No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel by Janice Dickinson

Sometimes life is less interesting than fiction, even that of a star-screwing supermodel.


A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album by Ashley Kahn

A Love Supreme was recorded the same way it was composed, and was composed the same way it was conceived: quickly, in the moment's inspiration.


Lighter than Air—Moral Poems by Hans Magnus Enzensberger, translated by David Constantine

Things that seem 'lighter than air' can carry secretly within them vast potential weights of human suffering and catastrophe.
