They always say write what you know, but I prefer to write what I love. And they always say, write the kind of book you would love to read. So, I write crime fiction.

Review: La Route Du Rock

Ryan Bassil

It's nearing 10:30 p.m., which means time for a headline set. It also means, usually, time for spotting a variety of drunkards, slewn out across the field in various states of self-exposure and disrepair. At least, it would, in England. But this isn't V Festival.

Movie Review: Savages

Marshall Fine

When the bullets fly and the knives come out, Savages springs to gory, spurting life. Too much of the film, however, showcases its pretty stars' shortcomings -- and they're almost significant enough to sink the film.

The Worst Bad Solution

Don Winslow | Posted 09.05.2012 | Politics
Don Winslow

The solution isn't the military model, a "War on Drugs" that has no clear definition of victory, no exit strategy, no coherent strategy at all except the fatalistic acceptance of a seemingly endless stalemate. It hasn't worked, it cannot work, and it will not work.

Scott Mendelson | Posted 08.30.2012 | Entertainment

This weekend is surely as shining an example as anything that the mainstream film landscape has somewhat self-corrected. We may like to say 'they don't make 'em like they used to.' That may have been true for a time, but it's not true anymore.
