a new movie from the director of "Magnolia"

The Salon review of a new movie by Paul Thomas Anderson. Seems good. After what he did in Magnolia and Boogie Nights I wouldn't have expected less.

a platform for closed minds

An attack on artistic freedom through lawsuit and media persecution: Prize-winning French novelist Michel Houellebecq is being sued by four Islamic organisations while being disparaged in the media and in public for the behavior of a character in his latest novel and some personal remarks made during an interview.

Salman Rushdie comments on the matter with his excellent Guardian op-ed A platform for closed minds.
