It’s a criticism double-shot.
“This Planet is Not Yours to Rule” – n+1’s latest buckshot blast of capsule movie reviews by A.S. Hamrah. >>This second Transformers film is garbage, a big pile of useless scrap and refuse in every way, but there are shots in it of plastic beauty which use Megan Fox’s stress-tested porno face like an element in a James Rosenquist painting of car parts and spaghetti. But so what? James Rosenquist paintings already exist. <<
“In the Theater of Isak Dinesen” – by Joanna Scott at The Nation. >>Confession doesn’t leave much room for imagination except to demand its allegiance to the personal, which may leave readers less inclined to find value in the extravagant lies of fiction.
