Props.

Only Ambika could use Thandie Newton's fashion sense as a perfect jumping off point to discuss racial identity, media representation, and the criminally bad miscasting of Mark Wahlberg in Charade. A seriously great post. Go read it.

yes, great post. Although, must admit to having a Marky Mark fetish :) But then again, I never saw that movie.

Hi Winona, i'm doing a project on censorship and freedom of speech for my county history fair, and i wanted to know if i could use a picture from the post you did when you went to dc to the protest, the one of the sign that says "god bless america should not mean god damn everyone else" i'd really appreciate it. thanks

Hmmm...interesting. Haven't given much thought about that.

But I have given a lot of thought to Charade - to paraphrase Erik Spiekermann from Helvetica: Charade was perfect, so obviously any change to perfection will not be as perfect.

In other words - Charade was a great movie starring Cary Grant, and when you replace Cary Grant with Mark Freaking Wahlberg and not, at the very least, George Clooney, you will not have a good movie.

Eritia--
Of course you can! But only if you take me out to coffee when I move to DC. :)
