Bright Lights, Big City Review


OK
As a college student hoping for a career in the "glamorous world of magazine publishing" back in the '80s, I was captivated by Jay McInerney's 1984 novel Bright Lights, Big City, which depicts that world but tears away most of the glamour. Still, it made New York seem tremendously exciting.

This Is Not An Exit: The Fictional World Of Bret Easton Ellis Review


Bad
"My problem was being a young man with money in Manhattan," says Bret Easton Ellis, citing his inspiration for American Psycho. When it comes to vivid fantasies of alienated urban narcissism, his prose strikes a chilling, edgy chord. Like skimming the surface of an icy lake, we are left imagining the dark depths below.

Gia Review


Good
Model goes bad, kills herself on drugs and the diseases that come with them. If you can muster some pity for poor Gia Carangi, a 1970s supermodel who died of AIDS at age 26, you'll enjoy Gia. Mainly, it's because of Jolie and her prodigious acting talents, even though she does come across as a bit cold. Overall, this is fine made-for-cable filmmaking, though it's hardly world-class.
