LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

R hodes Scholar, musician, and actor Kris Kristofferson is back on the screen in "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries," a fictional profile of author James Jones as written by his daughter Kaylie Jones. Kristofferson talks about the film with Ray Pride of Newcity Chicago in "Taken for Granite."

Memphis Flyer's Mark Jordan takes a look at the work of legendary director Akira Kurosawa in "The Stuff of Dreams," while Tom Shales wonders how bad this year's TV season is going to be. He isn't betting money on success, that's for sure.

Reviews this week include "One True Thing," "Buffalo'66," and "Seventh Heaven," and more in Mini Reviews.
