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.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
