5.0 out of 5 stars Top film, 14 Aug 2001
This review is from: All Over Me [VHS] (VHS Tape)
A deeply moving beautifully shot piece that hinges on the subtle yet deeply moving performances of the cast. Anyone with any hint of sensitivity in their body (whatever sexuality) cannot fail to be moved by this strangely touching and wonderful film. The use of music stands out as the most memorable part of the film which honestly left me dazed. (I liked it)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK EVER, 14 Aug 2001
This review is from: Infinite Jest (Paperback)
Simply my favorite book ever, it opened my eyes to fiction and affected profoundly the way I see the creative process. The structure of this novel is sublime, the flashes of warmth shine through as does Foster amazing creativity and humour. I can't say enough in praise of this novel apart from to say the only book worthy of sitting next to it is 1984. (Not that is overtly similar, it's just the only one good enough) Don't be put off by the language, it should not be a barrier, indeed it should be enjoyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Springsteen meets Nick Drake lo-fi affair, 14 Aug 2001
This review is from: Crooked Fingers (Audio CD)
A more bleak arrangement than on Eric B's Crooked Fingers debut curiously makes for a warmer sounding record. Eric is a big Springsteen fan and it shows (in a good way) particularly on the empathic opening track where he seems more specific and personal than ever (Archer's fans will know what I mean about the vagueness of his lyrics) However all the usual interesting guitar work and beautiful turns of phrase are here as well as Eric's trademark descriptions of drunken misery. Stand out tracks are for me, the opening two songs as well as 'Sad Love' (heavily reminiscent of 'Sad Sad Rain,' the penultimate track on the previous record 'Crooked Fingers.' Eric has developed his work with samples and this is what gives the album a rich texture despite the stripped down instrumentation. All in all another excellent piece of work from the Chapel Hill genius, The one criticism is that the album tails of very slightly toward the end, perhaps the tracks should have been a different order? A minor quibble though.
