    • 2007 October 28, Dennis Lim, “Booed at Cannes, but Now the Real Test”, in New York Times[1]:
      Southland Tales simulates the oversaturation of the 21st-century mediascape and delights in, even as it mocks, the vulgar absurdities of celebrity culture. Ms. Gellar's character, for example, is a multitasking, politically minded sex-film star Jenna Jameson meets Arianna Huffington, Mr. Kelly said with a View-like talk show and a hit song called Teen Horniness Is Not a Crime (co-written by Mr. Kelly and to be released as a single).
