DVD: The Men Who Stare at Goats, For retail & rental (Momentum)

Jon Ronson's book about the Pentagon's secret experiments in psychic combat has been turned into a film in the most unsatisfying possible manner.

DVD: The Men Who Stare At Goats (15)

Jon Ronson's droll and troubling exposé of the US military's bizarre practices – which included forming an experimental unit that employed paranormal techniques (such as killing goats by just staring at them) to train a legion of "Jedi warriors" – has been adapted into this weak satire.

Tilda Swinton: 'I was expected to marry a duke!'

It's freezing when I meet Tilda Swinton, in a hotel overlooking London's Leicester Square. The country is still in the grip of the grimmest winter in 30 years, not that it has dented her mood. "We were snowed in for seven days!" she says, with glee. "In the north of Scotland, it's been extraordinary. It's been like Siberia. Just to show you..."

Oscar Notebook: It is a special moment seeing your movie held up in front of bigger movies

Observations: To Cannes via 'Cosi'

William Shimell – British opera's answer to George Clooney – turns up to talk about playing the evil genius Don Alfonso in the Covent Garden Cosi fan tutte (which he's currently singing to acclaim), but the score he's nervously clutching is that of Stravinsky's Rake. The singer playing the evil genius in that show is seriously off-colour: if he flakes out, Shimell – a noted exponent of that role, and conveniently on hand – will have to step in. "Do you mind," he asks, "if I keep my mobile on?"

LA Notebook

Sarah Sands: Blessed are the sacked, for they shall change the world

Time magazine names Ben Bernanke, head of the US Federal Reserve, as person of the year. After the storm, the old sage acknowledges the first puny signs of growth. This year was all about the masters of the universe, and they were wonderful material for writers. The story that has not been told is the poignant and fearful one of unemployment in the real economy. The sorrows of the boss class have little in common with the stomach-gnawing anxiety of the rank and file. For the former, hurt pride can be soothed by lawyers and socking great pay-offs. For the rest, it can mean losing everything.
