Volume IV, Issue 8
August 14 - August 21, 2000  

J ust as the new NFL season is about to get under way, here comes "The Replacements," a film about a bunch of second-rate players who get a chance to make good during a football strike.

The Hughes brothers explore the psychology, economics, lingo, couture, and mythology of the "American Pimp" in a new documentary.

Are you a Steve or a Stu? "The Tao of Steve" might be able to answer that question for you, but will you really want to know?

Also, a documentary about the demonization of pot, further lamentations over the current spate of reality shows, and more.
