Vanilla Sky (2001)

Moreover, the film asserts, if you're not careful in your dealings with people, you'll end up with no self and no life, in that big empty Times Square in your head.


Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

What is perhaps most successful about 'Not Another Teen Movie' is its commentary on the obsessive and incessant whiteness of the genre.


Kandahar (2001)

There is also no end, at least as a Western viewer might imagine it, to the desert culture represented here, the traditions and meanings of Afghanistan, before, during, and perhaps after, the Taliban.

Johnny Cash: America: A 200 Year Salute in Story and Song

Johnny Cash created something new, a visceral, holy, and violent brand of folk music that passed itself off as 'country' when country was busy schlocking things up in Nashville, while folk was the province of hippie bubbleheads.

Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

The background surf, unbuttoned shirt, and look away from the camera -- all this demonstrates just how movie-starness is done. The plot, like I say, is beside the point.


Life and Debt (2001)

Makes the connections for you, refusing to let you off the hook.

De La Soul: AOI: Bionix

With AOI: Bionix, the stakes are still high, except now De La are more concerned with safety and sustenance and their own mortality, or rather the things that mark the beginning of the transition into middle age.


Various Artists: Mondo Soca

Ploughshares: The Literary Journal at Emerson College

While this is a noble endeavor and one that makes for a wonderful eclecticism from one issue to the next, it also means occasionally taking the bad eggs with the good.


North American Review: PopMatters Literary Journal Review

Since its inception, the 'North American Review' has been a journal with a reputation for strong 'literary' writing.

Goldfrapp: 30 Nov 2001 - Los Angeles

Most Americans haven't heard of them, but in Britain, the press has spent the past year gushing over Goldfrapp, and rightly so.
