To preview the special December “Best of 2002″ issue and take advantage of ribe.

“There are any number of breathtaking moments in Matthew Barney’s CREMASTER 3, the most extravagant artwork I’ve come across this year (and not just this year)–like the sequence in which a skeletal zombielike body emerges from the mud in a tunnel beneath the Chrysler Building and is placed in the backseat of a ’38 Imperial New Yorker parked in the lobby.”

Daniel Birnbaum on Matthew Barney’s CREMASTER 3

“Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal get my vote for screen couple of the year (even if they were drunk and don’t remember a thing).”

John Waters on Alfonso Cuaron’s Y Tu Mama Tambien

“…Feldman channels Duchamp, Warhol, and Rauschenberg, but is at once funnier than any of them and more rigorously artless. Like any good comedian, he knows that some of the best jokes are pointed and painful.”

Vince Aletti on Hans-Peter Feldmann
