MY KID COULD PAINT THAT
Directed by Amir Bar-Lev. In Limited Release. (Marla Olmstead pictured above.)

"A story that had seemed to raise philosophical questions about the nature of art after modernism - some of them posed by Michael Kimmelman, chief art critic for The New York Times - evolves into a queasy study of the culture of celebrity."

Reviewed by A. O. Scott, The New York Times.

MICHAEL CLAYTON
Directed by Tony Gilroy. In Wide Release.

"Dark in color, mood and outraged worldview, Michael Clayton is a film that speaks to the way we live now. Or at least, the way certain masters of the universe do, as they prowl the jungle in their sleek rides, armed with killer instincts and the will to power."

Reviewed by Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.

STRANGE CULTURE
Directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson. Opens today in New York; Hartford, Connecticut; and Columbus, Ohio.

"Alternately teasing and terrifying, Strange Culture is a near-perfect alignment of subject and form. In its creative assessment of our current judicial climate, the need for artistic freedom has seldom seemed so urgent."

It all started when a caller asked why he felt comfortable using the term "ki*e" while discussing bigotry while using the term "N-word" when referring to a slur against African-Americans.

Prager used the discussion to make the point that people are allowed to use anti-Jewish slurs but cannot use the N-word because "the Left" controls American culture.
