Better than the movie

Anthony Lane’s New Yorker Mag review (titled “Highly Illogical”) of the new Star Trek movie is dense, running on 24 levels, and funny as hell. There are too many good bits too thickly interwoven to be plucked out as snippets, so please excuse my providing no sample. If you want to laugh and think hard at the same time, give it a read: http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/cinema/2009/05/18/090518crci_cinema_lane

And if you disagree with Lane’s take, try Manohla Dargis’s, in the NY Times: http://movies.nytimes.com/2009/05/08/movies/08trek.html

(Comparing the reviews should show you why I think Lane is the best living film reviewer at the moment.)
