 Reviews 
  
 

Many e-zines include a page or more of reviews of such things as movies, books, television shows, CDs, and so on. Here's a format I might use for my reviews.

Books

Motherless Brooklyn
Jonathan Lethem

A mystery novel told in the first person by a young man who suffers from Tourette's Syndrome. The mystery plot itself is stretched a little thin, but this is a real tour de force by a writer to watch.

Movies

Rushmore
Wes Anderson, director

One of the sweetest and funniest movies of the 90s. Some people didn't like the main character, but I found him fascinating and charming in a squirmy sort of way. Also one of the best and least contrived happy endings I've seen in a movie recently. Bill Murray is great!

Music

Is This It?
The Strokes

Excellent retro-seventies garage-band style rock from this NYC quartet. Their influences range from Buddy Holly to the Velvet Underground, and it shows. Singer Julian Casablancas evokes shades of Lou Reed with every syllable, and the super-fat basslines mesh with the classic 60s guitar buzz feel of every song. This album is a must!!!
