This is a bit of a long shot, but...
I need a work of art from the 20th century that is overtly political.
I'm already using Picasso's "Guernica" and Diego Rivera's "Man at the Crossroads," so it can't be either of those.
M'aidez! (Or "help me" for those of you non-Frenchies.)
I'd like it noted that Best Buy has a big DVD sale this week. $4.99 per movie.
That's not the point of this post, however.
The point is that for $4.99, these aren't the greatest of films. On the list? Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, Little Black Book, Saw, Van Wilder, and Hollow Man, to name a few.
That's not the point, either.
The point is that ALSO on the list is Crash.
That's right. Last year's Oscar winner for Best Picture is being sold for peanuts along side a whole list of crappy, B-movies, like Starship Troopers 2 (not even the original).
I was right in thinking Crash was a terrible movie. Yeah, it had a couple interesting insights on racism in American, but overall, it's no better than Men in Black (which also took a look at racism, if you'll remember, and is on sale for $4.99).
AMC's Sunday Morning Shootout makes me so happy.
Especially Sunday's episode with Peter Guber out (not that I don't adore him, but Peter Bart's discussion with Todd McCarthy was stellar).
And James Cromwell is a terrifically passionate human being and I love it.
Ah, "the business."
I love The Idol.
It's so addicting and awesome.
If any of you were watching, I totally voted for the cutie Asian Paul (though he wasn't super vocally...he's good enough and hot). I also voted for Blake (he was actually good) and AJ (he was alright). I usually only vote for one, but since 2 are getting kicked off, I figured I could bump up my vote.
Tomorrow night: the girls!
