While most Americans have yet to discover Inveraray, Scotland, writer Patricia Beeson ("Castle Town, Lochside View," Jan. 16) probably wasn't aware that this part of Loch Fyne is also the ancestral home of the MacNaughton Clan. American MacNaughtons frequently travel northeast from Inveraray on the A83 road to view their manse, Dunderave Castle. This small but complete house is privately owned (by a dentist from Ohio) and may not be visited, but as the castle sits on a promontory that juts into the loch, it can be easily viewed from the roadway.

Michael Shannon is riding a bit of a hot streak. His portrayal of a manic survivalist in “Take Shelter” garnered all sorts of acclaim last year. He's a standout in the otherwise somewhat muddled spiritual drama “Grace” on Broadway. He did pretty nicely with "The Iceman" earlier this year. And he'll be reporting for Zod duty in “Man of Steel” this summer.” The 38-year-old still has time for a passion project though. Shannon has signed on to “The Harvest,” a psychological thriller about parents who are forced into a complicated situation involving their ill child.

Making a film is hard enough. But getting it to the screen can be even harder. Ask director John McNaughton. It took three years for his controversial debut feature, "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer," to find a distributor before making the 1990 Top 10 list of Time magazine, USA Today and the Chicago Tribune.

JOHN McNAUGHTON / DIRECTOR John McNaughton stands apart from other rising directors in that before his shocking 1990 release, "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer," he led a true blue-collar life. The Chicagoan, 49, is now balancing Hollywood--the new thriller "Wild Things" and its relatively big names (Kevin Bacon, Matt Dillon, Neve Campbell) and budget--and a project closer to his roots: an upcoming documentary on New York artist George Condo.

Two sexually precocious high school seniors are washing a Jeep in a residential driveway in suburban Florida, and indulging in a little water fight while they're at it. The water does what water does, makes the girls' skimpy clothing cling to their bodies, and clinging does what clinging does--drives men crazy. But what men? The Jeep's owner, a teacher that one of the girls has a crush on, is in the house. There's no one there to watch the show they're putting on, so who is it for? It must be .

A 19-year-old Newport Beach man was sentenced to 17 years to life in prison on Friday in the stabbing death last year of a man whose condominium unit he shared. Brent Vangsness, convicted last December, was sentenced to 15 years to life for second-degree murder and to one year each for using two weapons--a knife and a wood chisel--in the stabbing. The victim was Scott McNaughton, 29, the son of John McNaughton, chairman of the board of National Education Corp. of Newport Beach.

"The Borrower" (Laemmle's Monica) is a horror movie that never lets us indulge in the dubious elation of sadism. Directed by John McNaughton, it's distilled horror: very grim, very compact and, despite the lurid surrealism and mad jokes of its plot, often disturbingly real. It's a pretty nutsy movie, shot in a surreally distended mixture of Chicago and L.A. locations, by a director ("Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer") whose sensibility soars far above the seeming squalidness of his material.

John McNaughton's documentary "Condo Painting" sounds like a put-on, and in a way it is, even though that title refers not to an apartment house getting a face lift but to a witty study of artist George Condo at work. A boyish-looking man in his 40s with a shock of thick, black hair, Condo is an important figure in the Manhattan art scene.
