Counter Culture�

Counter Culture� – The dialogue stars in You Can Count on Me. The 6th Day thinks through cloning and capitalism. Why’d they bother with How the Grinch Stole Christmas? � by David Edelstein
The new, live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas doesn’t settle for this biological-determinist interpretation of the Grinch’s misanthropy. It takes a humanistic approach and gives the Grinch a lengthy “back story.” See, he had some genetic problems (deformity, green pallor, a tendency to munch on glass bottles) but was also teased and driven into exile�which makes him clearly redeemable.
