Heading south from the quirks of "Twin Falls Idaho," the Polish brothers (Mark, Michael) have gone to New Mexico, which subs for Texas, and made a sweet, congenial comedy of dreams.

Billy Bob Thornton, looking more than ever like a Dust Bowl version of Humphrey Bogart, is the dreamer named Farmer who wants to be an astronaut. Charles Farmer was once a hot Air Force pilot, but ... [full story]

O'Neill was the sly young FBI agent whose key role in a sting led to the arrest of his boss, ... [full story]

Producer Lindsay Doran is searching for the right words to describe the work of screenwriter Zach Helm, in particular his curious, quirky and enormously entertaining romantic-comedy "Stranger Than Fiction" (Sony, 3 1/2 stars). Doreen stumbles mentally, then blurts, "He fires on all syllables." Syllables. I think she's got something there. Helm fires on every page in his immensely clever script. And with enormous good fortune, he lands Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball," "Finding Neverland" and soon-to-be ... [full story]

A sound that "can't be classified." Mangled metaphors comparing the music to trains barreling down iced-over lakes into your brain. Boilerplate sentiment that really, truly is B.S. Band bios are stupid, repetitive and conjured up for nearly every band. Thankfully, Jacob Lynam took the history of his rock band, Lynam, into his own creative hands. LYNAM - Jacob, left, and Mark, center, adopted the last name of David Lynam, right, for band-mythology purposes. CNS Photo. ... [full story]

"Petropolis" by Anya Ulinich; Viking; 325 pages; $25. Life in Asbestos 2, a dreary, crumbling Siberian town in the dreary, crumbling Soviet Union, wasn't going to hold back young Sasha Goldberg. Not if her mother had anything to say about it, and her mother had something to say about everything. "Children of the intelligentsia don't just come home in the afternoon and engage in idiocy," she tells her daughter. Two problems: 1) The Goldbergs' membership ... [full story]
