LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S ummer's over; now comes the fall crop of big screen flicks. Join Weekly Alibi's Devin O'Leary on a week-by-week tour of all the movies fit to see. Chicago Newcity's Ray Pride gives us a look at the must-see films of the Chicago International Film Festival in "Zest of the Fest."

Take a look into the serious and the whacky with interviews from documentary filmmaker Allie Light and "A Night at the Roxbury" star Chris Kattan. Then find out about Jackie Chan's rise to fame with a review of the recently released book, "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action."

Full reviews this week start off with a pair of lukewarm critiques of "Clay Pigeons" from Tucson Weekly and Weekly Alibi. Also in the mix are "Pi," "Antz," "The Last Big Thing," and "Without Limits."
