New York magazine's Ken Tucker writes the laziest film review I've seen in a long time (in a national magazine anyway). There's no real indication that he even saw the movie in his pretentious 155-word slacker review. He spends more time describing Nicole Kidman's hair than he does on the flick's plot. If you're that jaded with reviewing movies, get another job, dude.
For what it's worth, I think Jonathan's Glazer's Birth is better than the reviews it's been getting. Glazer has also directed a number of striking music videos including Massive Attack's Karmakoma clip and "that Jamiroquai video" ("Virtual Isanity") and Sexy Beast, which showed us that Ben Kingsley could play the devil as well as he could Ghandi--and likely landed him that role in House of Sand of Fog, I reckon.
