LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

B est known for his acting roles--usually portraying the bad guy--Stanley Tucci is back on the big screen with his sophmore film effort, "The Impostors." In his nostalgia piece about friendship, Tucci has achieved either hilarious charm or created a ship of fools, depending on who you believe. Take your pick in "Tucci Feely" or "Few and Far Between."

Director Bryan Singer is following up "The Usual Suspects" with Stephen King's "Apt Pupil." Austin Chronicle's Marc Savlov interviews him about his new project.

This weeks full reviews include "What Dreams May Come," "Ronin," "Clay Pigeons," "Fireworks," "Permanent Midnight," "Pecker," and "When the Cat's Away ." Or if you're looking for a quick look, check our Mini-Reviews.
