"John Le Carr Novelist
Maybe not a vintage year for fiction, but a grande ann e for emerging history. Both Antony Beevor's The Fall of Berlin 1945 (Penguin) and Simon Sebag Montefiore's Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar (Weidenfeld and Nicholson) were horrific, revelatory and sobering. Both were triumphs of research and should be required reading in Russia. By coincidence, the best novel I have read this year is also a Russian story: Colum McCann's Dancer (Metropolitan Books), a beautifully written fictionalised account of the life of Rudolf Nureyev."

"The Tom Cruise vehicle The Last Samurai, about a burned-out veteran of the Civil and the Indian wars who rediscovers his idealism while teaching Japanese soldiers how to use guns, is a sensitive, exquisitely detailed historical drama. It's also a crock. To figure out exactly what kind of crock, I had to think about the career of its director, Ed Zwick, and about Hollywood war pictures as a species.
Cruise's character, Nathan Algren, is a classic archetype: the stoic warrior whose dormant soul must be reawakened by commitment to a cause. The cause doesn't present itself right away."
