Hey Insiders,

Get American with our double-scoop serving of the best of the US—not necessarily the best as in the nicest, or the best as in the smartest, but definitely the best as in the best entertainment around. American Gangster is out and it is packing heat… if you ever thought about getting on Denzel Washington’s bad side (not that many people would want to) then think again, because he is a menacing presence as Frank Lucas, Harlem’s most formidable criminal.

American Dad is about as far from American Gangster as it’s possible to get. Stan Smith is possibly the least formidable man in the entire world. Sure, he owns a lot of guns, and he knows how to use them… but he’s incapable of making a good decision even if his life depends on it (which it frequently does). American Dad is the second TV show from the brilliant (and brilliantly funny) mind of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy.

Speaking of brilliant… Steve Buscemi is back in this month’s Interview, weaseling his way through another clever, left-of-centre movie. The film also stars Sienna Miller, and the two of them joust over lives and jobs in Interview.

If you’re looking for something a little more arthouse, look no further than Irina Palm, the story of a grandmother who takes up working again in order to raise money for her grandson’s operation. The job, however, is not quite your average nine to five… Irina Palm won rave critical reviews and isn’t a movie that you’ll forget after seeing it.

See you in-store.
