Here's a horror flick about cloning. Robert De Niro, in mad-professor mode, wants to clone the dead son of Greg Kinnear and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. Director Nick Hamm, of the Royal Shakespeare Company, if you please, is transparently trying to clone something else: M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense and all its box-office booty. Fat chance. Every scare is telegraphed. Every surprise is recycled from a better thriller. Even the devil would send this one back.

    “Bird on a Wire”

    Leonard Cohen | 1969

    While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
