LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

B efore Danny Trejo was an actor, he was a convict, one who spent nearly 15 years in prison on charges ranging from drug trafficking to robbery. Now he's shooting for the moon.

"The Color of Paradise" touches on basic human emotions and needs with a rapturous gaze and exquisite camerawork and glimpses an Iran unseen by most Westerners.

The real star of "The Hi-Line" is the Montana countryside, as hushed, forbidding, and chilly as the characters it cloisters.

Plus, British rave culture in "Human Traffic," the Fiennes family takes on a Russian masterpiece, the lure of reality TV, and more.
