LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W oody Allen's new flick "Celebrity" is--in typical form--part autobiography, part fantasy. First, we have an interview with Allen from Newcity Chicago's Ray Pride. Then we give you reviews from Weekly Alibi and Austin Chronicle.

Also new to the big screen is "Elizabeth." Giving us a look at 16th century England under Queen Mary and her successor Queen Elizabeth, the movie delves into the intrigues of court life. Leading off, we have an interview with director Shekhar Kapur, followed by reviews from Tucson Weekly and Austin Chronicle.

Also reviewed this week: "Velvet Goldmine," "Enemy of the State," "The Celebration," "One Tough Cop," "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "Living Out Loud," "Lolita," "The Eel," and more in Mini-Reviews.

This week in Video & TV, we take a look at crime caper movies, "Titanic" on VHS and Laserdisc, and videogame-based TV shows.
