Some movies have a premise so interesting that, for a while, they're carried by it. That's almost the case with "The Bedroom Window" (citywide), a Hitchcockian pastiche about successively deeper layers of voyeurism, terror and guilt. As in "Psycho," writer-director Curtis Hanson takes us from adultery and deceit to murder, madness and destruction's brink. The premise is from a British mystery by Anne Holden, "The Witnesses," which Hanson transfers to Baltimore.

"The Favor" is a pleasant romantic comedy, aimed at thirtysomethings and younger, and it affords solid roles for Harley Jane Kozak and Elizabeth McGovern. Bearing a 1991 copyright, the film had been held up by the bankruptcy filing by Orion Pictures, which has since reorganized.
