The controversial dutch film-maker Theo van Gogh had intended to make this movie before he was murdered by a Muslim extremist. So Steve Buscemi took over as director and co-writer. He also takes the lead role of Pierre, a snob of a D.C. correspondent who gets his nose out of joint when assigned to interview Katya (Sienna Miller), a sex-kitten actress he ranks below Paris Hilton. The film is unashamedly a claustrophobic exercise, shot in one room in which two characters strip away layers of pretense to get at the truth. Stick with it for Miller's gutsy tour de force and the kick of watching Buscemi, as actor and filmmaker, turn an experiment into a mesmerizing battle of wills.

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
