Deception Point by Dan Brown
Deception Point by Dan Brown
The other Dan Brown books (Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons) employ a different model of storytelling. That is, they deal with a lot of art history and symboligy.

Adaptation (Superbit) (Bilingual) <b>DVD</b> ~ Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage puts together a performance that actually tops his stellarness in "Leaving Las Vegas." What a complex set of characters he plays (twins with totally opposite personalities) and he pulls it off amazingly.
The supporting cast is first rate as well. Meryl Streep's character is complex, but as usual, she pulls it off, in fact we've come to expect this kind of performance from Ms. Streep that we sort of just take her for granted. She's excellent nonetheless. Chris Cooper is worthy of his best supporting… Read more
