With "McBain" (citywide), writer-director James Glickenhaus, a skilled exploitation film veteran, turns a macho action fantasy into a surprisingly effective and provocative revolutionary epic. He delivers the spectacular mayhem that action audiences expect, yet at the same time creates a stunningly cinematic film. He and his cameraman, Robert M. Baldwin Jr., bring to 'McBain" a graceful fluidity, a driving pace and constant flow of striking imagery that bring to mind Brian De Palma at his best.

Dole Food Co. Chairman and Chief Executive David Murdock bought $43.7 million worth of shares of the Westlake Village-based fresh produce company before the World Trade Organization ruled that the European Union unfairly restricted bananas produced by U.S. companies.

"Shakedown" (citywide) is mindlessly enjoyable escapist fare in which a courtroom drama is enlivened by intercutting it with a couple of wholly improbable but spectacular chases in--and above--New York. It's said to be based on a true story, but you could have fooled me. Peter Weller stars as Roland Dalton, a Manhattan Legal Aid attorney handed a final assignment before moving up to a cushy job at the Wall Street firm of his future father-in-law.

"Basket Case 2" is the new Friday midnight show at the Nuart and there couldn't be a better mating of movie and venue. It has everything it needs to become the cult film that its 1982 predecessor has been: outrageous dark humor, bizarre horror, driving energy and genuine pathos. It also looks and sounds great, thanks to cinematographer Robert M. Baldwin and composer Joe Renzetti, both major contributors to the film's sinister atmosphere.

The Philippines is becoming a budget Hollywood, attracting foreign filmmakers despite deteriorating security and more than its share of natural disasters. James Glickenhaus, producer of "McBain," said varied locations, a professional local work crew and an English-speaking population also make filming here easier. "All in all, it was an extremely attractive place for us to shoot," Glickenhaus said. "I would recommend it to other filmmakers. It's a great place to shoot."

Peter Weller is in a hurry. The 41-year-old actor, who scored the biggest success of his career last year as "RoboCop," is running late and has roughly an hour to pack and board a plane for Rome, but he doesn't want to leave town without putting in a good word for his new film, "Shakedown."

Countrywide Financial Corp. unveiled a plan Tuesday to refinance or modify $16 billion in loans to help struggling borrowers, drawing cautious praise from some consumer advocates. But the lender's stock sank to a four-year low. The stock's woes could increase pressure on Chief Executive Angelo Mozilo, who faces scrutiny from the Securities and Exchange Commission and calls for his resignation amid expectations that Countrywide will report a large third-quarter loss Friday.

A stream of cash from private investors into banks and other companies that have been hurt by the sub-prime mortgage crisis is raising hope that battered financial stocks have hit bottom. Swiss banking giant UBS and No. 1 bond insurer MBIA Inc. on Monday became the latest financial companies to attract money from outside investors to fortify their capital in the face of expected mortgage-related losses. Similar cash-raising moves were announced in recent weeks by Citigroup Inc.
