Impostor, based encouragingly on a short story by the great Philip K. Dick, zaps the spy game into the future. It's 2079, and the world, at war with aliens for more than ten years, needs scientist Spencer Olham (Gary Sinise) to protect it from nuclear and biological weapons. But is Spencer who he says he is? Even his wife (Madeleine Stowe) has doubts. The film raises timely questions about warfare and surveillance, but director Gary Fleder (Don't Say a Word) pushes the same old cliches in Blade Runner packaging.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
