The tombstone-style ad Woody Allen has decreed for his new film "Crimes and Misdemeanors" is startling in its lack of startle. No pulsating quotes, no searing ad line, no pretty faces, no drawn gun, no bared bosom; just the title in large letters adrift in a sea of white space, with the cast and crew in much smaller type and Allen's name nestled inconspicuously among the other players.

Theatricality is the keyword to Uli Edel's darkly fine adaptation of Hubert Selby's collected stories of the Brooklyn waterfront in 1952, "Last Exit to Brooklyn" (selected theaters). Although Edel shot his film almost entirely on its original locations in Brooklyn's Red Hook area, he has heightened its emotional and visual pitch.

In the packed congressional hearing room the lights were hot and the dialogue between committee members and witnesses even hotter. During a break in the heated testimony some panelists used little battery-powered fans to cool off, while some spectators passed the time reading newspapers.

The negative surprises in the Academy Award nominations receive a lot of early attention from Oscar-watchers. Rightly so, the attention is a kind of last tip of the hat to excellent work that may remain in memory but didn't make it on to the honor roll. Tips of the hat, for example, are due to a confounding number of supporting performances.

You can see Ann Magnuson now: married to the top cardiologist in Charleston, W.Va., car-pooling little Dawn, Debbie and Dougie from piano lessons to soccer games, dabbling in community theater--she gets great reviews from the local paper for her part in that Andrew Lloyd Webber program. As she sits sipping her gin and tonic at the country club, she looks at her hands and has a moment of turbulence: What am I going to do about these . . . nails? OK, that's not entirely serious.
