'Closed Circuit,' a post-privacy thriller

We're all being watched. All the time. That's a key message of “Closed Circuit,” an entertaining and well-crafted if not overly heart-stopping British conspiracy thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. Security cameras are everywhere, giving us birds-eye glimpses of each character, and reminding us that we, too, are never really alone.

Diana aims for competence

Tina Brown's witty, gossipy and perceptive “The Diana Chronicles” is one of the best books to consult if you want to make sense of the complicated life and tragic end of the Princess of Wales.

Could have been 'Almost Perfect'

With a predominantly Asian cast, “Almost Perfect” may at first strike you as an ethnocentric film like the movie director Bertha Bay-sa Pan debuted in her days at Brown University, “Face.” However, as you become more and more absorbed in the movie, you realize the conflicts and problems developed in the storyline derive from everyone just being all too human. It's a film where the story told is so incredibly detailed and realistically that nothing is surprising or neverbefore-seen different.
