LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

V ideo retailers have box sets and special deals on film paraphernalia at this time of year, and we've got a handy map to the coolest presents currently available.

Director Frank Darabont has taken Stephen King's "The Green Mile" and created a rare film that's equal parts written and visual narrative and that scores not so much on the strength of its convictions as it does on the truly remarkable performances it elicits from the cast.

By wearing its opinions on its sleeve, David Riker's "The City" opens itself up to questions of its own authenticity.

Also, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Happy, Texas, "Relax... It's Just Sex," and more.
