A Culture of Surveillance

Well, I guess to remind us all that it's primarily a print publication, In This Week's website is missing my column, about how bitter the director of "Norbit" is that people aren't hailing his movie as the cinematic masterpiece that it is. But they do have my four-star review of "The Lives of Others." (As always, reviews are out of four despite the superfluous star on the web version. Fixing this apparently requires an elaborate reprogramming of the entire database.) It may be hard to swallow after "Pan's Labyrinth" Best Foreign Film Oscar loss, but this is quite a sharp movie—way better than "Tsotsi."
