Withnail and I [DVD]
Bruce Robinson's Withnail and I is a doped-out comedy spun from autobiographical threads about two unemployed actors trying to make the best of times in London in late 1969. It features a bizarre cast of characters, has no real plot, and is shot in the rather dull, straightforward style of a first-time director trying to find his feet. Yet, it is a wonderfully written bit, more literary th ... ...

NEW YORK A Chechen acquaintance of dead Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has confessed to slashing the throats of three people in a 2011 gruesome triple murder, federal law enforcement officials have said.
Ibragim Todashev, who made the confession, was killed early Wednesday during a confrontation with the FBI and Massachusetts State Police in Orlando, Florida, a federal law enforcement official told CNN.

A second law enforcement official confirmed Todashev made the confession.
The unsolved triple murders had received renewed interest after it was learned that Tsarnaev was a sparring partner with one of the victims at a gym.
Investigators of the crime reported at the time that the heads of the three victims had been pulled back and their throats slit ear to ear with great force. ...
