Suddenly, being an investigate reporter is the hot new cinema occupation. Halle Berry plays a star investigative reporter at a vague New York tabloid in Perfect Stranger. In the straight-to-DVD Rise: Blood Hunter, Lucy Liu writes exposés for the LA Weekly (whose building serves for one location shot). Her latest triumph for the alternative press, a look at Goth subculture, is titled “The Grateful Undead.” The headline was no doubt supplied by her Swedish supermodel editor. Meeting a deadline never looked so chic.
