The Truth About Charlie (2002)

It conjures a perverse and giddy grace.


The Santa Clause 2 (2002)

Given that it's a generically family/holiday film, The Santa Clause 2 has nothing new to say about anything.


Russian Ark (Russkij kovcheg) (2002)

The film's high-tech artistic fantasies elide completely the historical roots and contemporary realities of global capitalism and terrorism.


I Spy (2002)

The basic opposition between sheepish Alex and suave Kelly sets up a series of trivial conflicts, some less tedious than others.


The Grey Zone (2002)

This crepuscular work offers the most realistic depiction of the infernal workings of a Nazi death camp ever seen in a fiction film.


Frida (2002)

Julie Taymor's Frida pulses with color.


Bowling for Columbine (2002)

Why are people scared? This question lies at the heart of Michael Moore's filmic essay on gun violence in the United States.

The Uncanny: Experiments in Cyborg Culture by Bruce Grenville, Editor

It's a lucid look at the fears that plague academics everywhere...Will I lose tenure to an intelligent toaster oven?"


Three Daughters by Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Pogrebin shows a flair for characterization that many seasoned novelists can't match.


In the Metro by Marc Augé

Riding the metro is...a journey taken in accompanied solitude, a voyage through space and through a kind of geographically mapped collective unconscious.


Amazonia by James Rollins

. . . offers you escape, and more than that, you'll learn something new, which your Mama always told you to do every day . . .
