THIS was absolutely one of the best pieces on the making of a film ["Love in the Time of Cholera"] that I've read in years ["Crazy 'Love,' " Jan. 28]. The quotes about relationships being like bandages were remarkable. [ " ... some relationships are bandaged and re-bandaged for decades, until the bandage finally starts to unravel, revealing what was always hidden but unacknowledged."] And the thoroughness of the article was exceptional. Thanks to Reed Johnson for continuing to write responsibly and effectively and deeply.

Too much security around Susan Sarandon! That's what some who attended the big premiere of "Stepmom" thought when the great actress arrived at New York's Ziegfeld Tuesday night and also later when she appeared at the Rainbow Room party. One veteran partygoer groused that Sarandon and her guy Tim Robbins had a security team "that rivaled that of Hillary Clinton."

There were two Erin Brockoviches at the premiere of director Steven Soderbergh's legal drama "Erin Brockovich": megastar Julia Roberts, who plays the feisty law office clerk-researcher in the movie, and the real Brockovich (now Erin Brockovich-Ellis). In fact, the duo that most industry guests wanted their photo taken with Tuesday night was not Roberts and her beau, Benjamin Bratt, or It-couple Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt; it was the statuesque Brockovich-Ellis and her boss, lawyer Ed Masry.

"I want to hear a poem where ideas kiss similes so deeply that metaphors get jealous, where the subject matters so much that adjectives start holding pro-noun rallies at city hall," says Steve Coleman. "I want to hear a poem, I want to feel a poem, I want to taste a poem. Give me your spot on the mike if you want to waste a poem."

"Abandon" is a trite psychological thriller designed to keep the audience guessing and guessing -- which is not to be confused with suspecting -- until it comes time to wrap things up and send the viewers home. The trouble with this well-worn approach to suspense is that all the while the filmmakers are upping the ante for themselves, generating expectations that they can't deliver on.
