New Spike Jonze Short Features Girls Song

Spike Jonze's latest mini-movie, I'm Here, isn't all that short. (After all, it comes with a trailer, and is reportedly 30 minutes long). But from the teaser available online, it looks pretty good, this angsty indie romance between two…

The World Is a Stage

If you traveled the length of John Malkovich's medulla oblongata, hung a sharp left at the desk where Beckett's Krapp recorded his last tape, and walked through the adjoining door of the interstellar hotel room at the end of 2001,…
