LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

M ore and more, the place to see pessimistic movies is at a film festival, but there were still at few to spread some good cheer about at the Montreal Film Fest.

"Stir of Echoes" is one more visceral jolt in a summer that was full of them, but screenwriter and director David Koepp is interested in more than just special effects.

Despite its lack of originality, Outside Providence is watchable, mostly because it avoids contemporary teen-film stylings for a more somber, 1970s romantic style.

Plus, "The Muse," "Twin Falls Idaho," a new Fox TV sitcom, and more.
