DVD review: The Reluctant Fundamentalist (Kaleidoscope)

In Mira Nair’s thoughtful drama, Riz Ahmed, above right, plays Changez, the well-born son of a Punjab poet who comes to America and is “catapulted into privilege” – an Ivy League education, then a prestigious job on Wall Street. It all changes after the Twin Towers go down, when merely being a Muslim gives rise to his being strip-searched at customs, mistakenly arrested and abused.

The Flamethrowers, By Rachel Kushner. Harvill Secker, £16.99

Rachel Kushner's second novel opens with a striking set-piece. It is 1977, and Kushner's nameless narrator – a young artist who will later be christened "Reno", after her hometown – races her motorcycle across the salt flats of Utah. She's doing a land-speed trial, while performing an artistic experiment: through speed, she aims to achieve an "acute case of the present tense". When her bike wipes out, the crash captures the message of Kushner's novel: that life can't be lived, nor art made, purely in the present. History will always hit us and send us spinning.

Mission Drift starring Heather Christian as Miss Atomic at the National Theatre

Theatre review: Mission Drift, National Theatre, London

A friend of mine recently got married in Las Vegas and celebrated by going to see Rod Stewart in concert there. He was enchanted by the whole glitzy glamour of the experience, and yet he’s a pretty old-fashioned type of socialist and, as it happens, an actor.

Film review: The Reluctant Fundamentalist (15)

Mira Nair's thoughtful drama takes a different angle from Zero Dark Thirty on the geopolitical fall-out from 9/11. Whereas Kathryn Bigelow's picture described a manhunt, this is more about the search for a man's soul.
