It makes for an unlikely combination: some of Hollywood's biggest stars rubbing up against relative obscurities from the international festival circuit. Yet that's exactly what happens each year at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, which has become an essential stop for celebs working the awards circuit while also showcasing iforeign language cinema (including Oscar hopefuls). "To me, that's the beauty of the festival, that combination," said festival director Darryl Macdonald.

There's a reason James Bond is still a bachelor: It means never having to choose between Mother England and a wife. In the action-comedy "The Spy: Undercover Operation," South Korea's most unassuming operative, middle-aged Chul-soo (Sul Kyung-gu), gets this lesson knocked into him while juggling espionage with the demands of his loudly suffering wife, Yeong-hui (Moon So-ri). After costarring as different sets of doomed lovers in art-house auteur Lee Chang-dong's "Peppermint Candy" and "Oasis," veteran performers Sul and Moon devote their considerable talents to this more commercial effort directed by Lee Seung-jun.

And now for something completely weird. Not weird as in the crackpot relative who likes to live off the grid and eat worms for breakfast, but weird as in spine-tingling, uncanny and vaguely disturbing. We've all had encounters of the weird kind. They're inexplicably unsettling. Without our being able to put a finger on it, they make us feel uncomfortable. "Weird" is often the reason why campfire stories exist and are so effective - they play on our suspicions that not all is as it seems, that there are darker realities to explain things that science has missed altogether.

It isn't easy being both funny and touching in 30 seconds, but Verizon Wireless pulls off the feat in its recent Father/Son commercial , in which subtitles translate the monosyllabic statements of a dad and grad. Created by McGarryBowen, the ad opens with the men shopping for a Droid cellphone. Dad: Congratulations. (Subtitle translation: I'm so sad you're leaving.) Son: Crazy, right? (Subtitle: Gonna be hard for me too.) After a salesclerk chimes in, Dad grunts, "Hmm" (translation: "You make me so proud")

CHICAGO - For art museums interested in contemporary American art, the 1980s have been a bit of a blind spot. Individual artists who emerged in those rambunctious years have not been in short supply in their galleries, through retrospectives and theme shows. But the period as a whole has remained elusive. Incisive surveys have been almost nonexistent. Perhaps it has something to do with wounded pride. With the roaring return of new European art, felled from prominence a generation earlier by the brutal devastation of war, a 30-year run that saw American artists at the top of the international heap came to a definitive end. Add New York's loss of national dominance after 1980 with the unequivocal emergence of Los Angeles art, and the cultural alterations were apparently too much to wrap one's head around.

At first glance, the Doors seem to be an unusual object of study for Greil Marcus, the music critic and cultural historian who likes to draw connections between punk music and world history ("Lipstick Traces") or Elvis Presley and the American myth ("Mystery Train"). The Los Angeles band is, after all, an act that these days mainly gets airplay for a few scattered hits such as "Light My Fire" and "Break on Through (To the Other Side). " They wouldn't seem substantial enough for Marcus' intense gaze.

House of Holes A Book of Raunch Nicholson Baker Simon & Schuster: 262 pp., $25 Nicholson Baker wasn't kidding when he subtitled "House of Holes," his new novel, "A Book of Raunch. " Indeed, it's a bona fide filth-fest, so unrelentingly graphic that there's not much I can quote from it in this review. At the same time, there's an innocence to "House of Holes," which is (if such a thing is possible) a dirty book without prurience, intended less to titillate than to amuse.

Through his Vanity Fair essays, his books and his television appearances, Christopher Hitchens has become one of our leading provocateurs, saying what many of us might be thinking (though he's more articulate) but are afraid to utter. Public intellectual, pundit, whatever, he is frequently thought-provoking and almost always entertaining, if occasionally offensive. So as he deals with a diagnosis of esophageal cancer, an admirer and fellow writer, Windsor Mann, has collected many of Hitchens' most piquant remarks and we have them now in "The Quotable Hitchens: From Alcohol to Zionism.
