Host Larry Mantle talks with author, and journalist Mark Hertsgaard about his new book The Eagle’s Shadow: Why America Fascinates and Infuriates the World. Hertsgaard visited fifteen countries in six months to gather outsiders’ perceptions of America. From sophisticated business and political leaders, to Islamic fundamentalists, Hertsgaard found these individuals to be conflicted about their feelings regarding America; admiring, and uneasy, envious, but appalled, good and bad, but never indifferent.
Larry Mantle with critics Jean Oppenheimer of New Times and Peter Rainer of New York Magazine review this week's new film releases, including Femme Fatale, 8 Miles, Far From Heaven, Derrida, The Rising Place, and last week's Tully.
Larry and the critics also discuss AFI Fest 2002 as well as the new video releases .
