LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he annual Cannes Film Festival is perceived as being hostile to mainstream American movies. How did Hollywood fare this year?

It would be nice if the millions of dollars spent on "Mission: Impossible 2" were put to use to eliminate malaria or something, but isn't it just as important to have pretty things to look at while the oceans rise and the ozone layer blows away?

Worse than TV sweeps weeks are the long summer months between the end of the old season and the beginning of the new one. Thank goodness there's cable television!

Plus, "Committed," "Bossa Nova," and more.
