LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I f screenwriters and studio heads could think just like real filmmakers instead of copycat offenders, instead of being awash in rote and thoughtless serial killers, we might get an entertaining movie like "Rear Window," now playing -- restored and re-released -- around the country.

Sandra Bullock is making the publicity rounds for her new movie, "28 Days," which our reviewer says is like an addict: "sympathetic to the core but not to be believed."

American Psycho is a movie that comes with a lot of baggage attached. One aspect that is indisputable is the importance of the soundtrack, and John Cale discusses his original work on the movie.

Also, Stanley Tucci directs Ian Holm in "Joe Gould's Secret," Paul Newman talks about wrapping up his movie career, and more.
