Based on a 19th century German tale, [i]The Black Rider[/i] tells the story of Wilhelm, a clerk who will not be allowed to marry his love, Kathchen, unless he learns to hunt.

By Suzanne Kleid (Aug 18, 2004)
Did you ever wear inch-thick pancake makeup and hot pants to the mall when you were twelve because you thought it made you look grown up and sophisticated?

Last year in South Texas, a truck driver smuggling illegal aliens opened the back of his tractor-trailer to find nineteen of its 74 occupants, including a child, dead of suffocation. In the last decade, as many as three hundred women have been found raped and murdered in the desert surrounding Ciudad Juarez. Hundreds more are missing and unaccounted for. No law enforcement agency seems to care. More »

Ellen Sussman's On A Night Like This
By Suzanne Kleid (Feb 15, 2004)
Let's hear a few sniffles for the Women's Weepie. You know the genre: stacked high at your local mega-chain, conveniently close to the Child Care and Self Help sections, one step up from the pulp romance. The Weepie always stars a headstrong, independent woman, a brooding, lonely man, and underneath their prickly exteriors, True Love begins to develop...but wait, there is an obstacle to this love. A difficult child, perhaps, or a fatal illness. What will they do? More »
