Some people find this mix of Internet porn and corporate spying easy to hate. But look closely at the hypnotic images presented by French director Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep), and a potent film emerges. Connie Nielsen, as an American exec for a French video company, fends off a deceitful assistant (Chloe Sevigny) and tries to acquire a Japanese 3-D animated porn site. Extras include astute commentary from Assayas and a cool feature with Sonic Youth on the making of the soundtrack.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
