American Ultra posits a mildly amusing premise -- what if a stoned-out slacker found out he was Jason Bourne? -- and turns it into ninety or so minutes of filmmaking that are probably a lot more engaging than they have any right to be.
Stewart turns the question back on the asker, pointedly making us collectively wonder, "Why do we care so much about who she's sleeping with? What does it change about how we perceive her whether she's dating a man or a woman?"

Tonight, I'm joined by Kristen Stewart who is continuing her commitment to independent films with her latest movie, Camp X-Ray, in which she delivers a strong, nuanced performance as a young, inexperienced MP assigned to Gitmo.

Stewart's commitment to this independent drama -- and her appearance in front of hundreds of law school students Tuesday -- seems far from the "celebrity headlines" she often elicits.
Meanwhile, we've seen challenges both stylish (go Anna Wintour! And what's with that onesie Ninja Turtle getup, Liam Hemsworth?) and resourceful (no one can go bucket-less like Robert Pattinson).
