Over the Edge (Bravo Sunday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 6 p.m. and next Sunday at 12:30 a.m.) marks Matt Dillon's debut; it is a riveting 1979 Jonathan Kaplan film about some dangerously bored early teens adrift in a raw suburban development.

California Split (Cinemax Monday at 4:10 a.m.) is one of Robert Altman's most unjustly neglected films, with George Segal and Elliott Gould as a couple of compulsive gamblers who are losers even when they're winning at the tables.

Too Late Blues (AMC Thursday at 6 p.m.), one of John Cassavetes' early (1962) efforts to work within the studio systems, has its moments. The story involves a love triangle set in the world of jazz. Bobby Darin, Stella Stevens and Cassavetes star.

Repo Man (A&E Saturday at 5 and 9 p.m.) is a fresh, virulently funny and offbeat 1984 release in which writer-director Alex Cox sets his contemporary comic portrait of the way we are against the scabrous background of the car repossession business in L.A. With Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez.
