US actress Jennifer Connelly and British actor Jim Broadbent won best supporting actor Oscars at Sunday's 74th annual Academy Awards, as fantasy film <i>Lord of the Rings</i> took an early awards lead.
<b>REVIEW:</b> <i>Rainbow Vice: The Drugs and Sex Industries in the New South Africa</i> by Ted Leggett (Zed/David Philip).
Ted Leggett's new book is a little like the mix between mandrax and dagga â€” to get up, you first have to go down, writes Charlene Smith.
With a fastidiousness, meticulousness and precision utterly at odds with the age of disposability and mass-production, Michael Croeser creates visual testaments to a value all but forgotten by many contemporary artists: obsession, writes Alexander Sudheim.
<b>Thriller of the week:</b> I found <i>The Deep End</i> a seriously provocative movie, one that left me with a persistent sense of unease, despite (or emphasised by) the beauty of its images, writes Shaun de Waal.
