While many fans of Wong Kar-wai were disappointed by My Blueberry Nights, there's no resisting its lush art direction and cinematography. Norah Jones, however, may have been too inspired a choice. To any who think the Apatow stamp is a guarantee of funny, please watch Drillbit Taylor (if you can make it through the whole, dreary mess). If there is any weakness to Mad Men it's that it may be a bit too meticulous in its rendering of the period. A little more messiness would be welcome. And more January Jones! Tyler Perry continues to print money with Meet the Browns. If only his artistic instincts were as sharp as his pecuniary ones.
