Director Steven Spielberg dwells on beauty, Janusz Kaminski, Spielberg's director of photography, said in a recent interview. Kaminski, for his part, sees beauty in the bleak and the ugly.

POLISH-BORN cinematographer Janusz Kaminski has shot every Steven Spielberg film since 1993's Oscar-winning "Schindler's List," for which the visual artist won his first Academy Award for the atmospheric black-and-white cinematography. Five years later, Kaminski picked up his second Oscar for bringing the invasion of Normandy to life in "Saving Private Ryan." And the two collaborators just completed next year's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Regarding "Grim. Black and White . . . Spielberg?," David Gritten's report on the making of "Schindler's List" (May 9): The reported comments about Polish anti-Semitism are bizarre and indeed inaccurate or misleading. The idea that a Polish woman would praise the Germans for killing Jews and call them "wonderful people" is either an outright lie or the words of a lunatic. These "wonderful" Germans killed 3 million Christian Poles during World War II and in the 19th Century tried to eliminate Polish culture and the Polish language using the "ethnic cleansing" technique.

"Lost Souls" is lost all right, a dreary tale of supernatural horror featuring Winona Ryder doing battle with Satan. Like her most recent previous film, "Autumn in New York," an old-fashioned tear-jerker that opened sans press previews, "Lost Souls" is set in Manhattan, ravishingly photographed in virtual sepia. Maybe the talented Ryder should head back to California about now and steer clear of genre material for a while.
