Tarzan

Written by Armond White on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Tarzan directed by Kevin Lima & Chris Buck You Tarzan,You Suck Animated films, central to this movie era’s technological cult, usually get praised despite their mediocrity. It’s as if people’s eyes were bigger than their brains. They worship Disney’s tech advances while accepting uninspired dramatic conventions. (That awful Beauty and the Beast—actually a step back for Disney—was hyped into an [&hellip

Birthday boy gets nothing!

Written by Dirty Sanchez on . Posted in Posts

Happy Sanchez does his happy-Sanchez dance and jumps up and down upon his mattress, for his birthday wish has come true! Some goofy rock critic finally took the bait and wrote a pissy letter to Sanchez! Whereas smug know-it-all Sanchez could’ve guessed that a couple of crazy women from Manhattan and Piscataway would have responded to his tearful plea for [&hellip

Gee, Bradley Really is a Stiff

Written by David Corn on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Have you caught Bill Bradley fever? A few weeks ago, he was the story of the presidential campaign, which still has nearly 17 months to run. This week, obviously, it’s George W.

Something to Be Sad About; Apologies to Kurt

Written by Taki on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

LEMAÎTRE You’re Depressed? My mother, who died last year in her 90s, suffered from melancholia throughout her life. Perhaps her melancholy was brought on by my father’s constant womanizing—he had too strong a sense of duty to ever leave her or to stop loving her, and too much sense of entitlement to ever give up having mistresses—but somehow I doubt it.

Written by Russ Smith on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

The Beltway Pundits Pout Wouldn’t it be extraordinary if the media elite put their cards on the table and admitted now whom they’ll be advocating in the 2000 presidential election?

Run Lola Run

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Run Lola Run directed by Tom Tykwer She Do Run Run Myself, I’d rather not. Perhaps the most interesting thing about Run Lola Run is the chance it offers to embrace two diametrically opposed ideas simultaneously. Can it really be smart and vapid, pregnant with meaning and barren of same all at once? Well, yes. And not only does that contradictoriness [&hellip

Written by Armond White on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Lovers on the Bridge directed by Leos Carax France’s Generation Vexed Almost a decade overdue, Leos Carax’s Les Amants de Pont-Neuf finally begins a regular theatrical run in America under the title Lovers on the Bridge.
