As the chief sonic architect for Public Enemy, rap's visionary radicals, Hank Shocklee has made some of the angriest sounding music ever in the pop world. The dense, tumultuous tracks that he constructs with the group mirror the tension and fury reflected in such album titles as "Fear of a Black Planet" and "Apocalypse 91 . . . the Enemy Strikes Black." Now Shocklee has applied the same aesthetics to the film world.

When the power failed across nine Western states last Saturday, a lightbulb went on at Gramercy Pictures. The massive outage provided the perfect marketing hook for "The Trigger Effect," a film starring Elisabeth Shue and Kyle MacLachlan that might have been lost in the box-office nether world of Labor Day weekend.

The cavernous downtown dancetorium is ablaze with the lights of a visiting movie crew, and Diamond J. Plastic Man and a few other local club deejays are hanging out, awaiting orders for an afternoon shoot. They make a very hip group of bit players, but not too hip to be impressed that they're in a film directed by Ernest Dickerson. Dickerson isn't famous, and it's not that he has directed any mega-hits--in fact, he's never before directed a movie.

Newport Beach-based Edwards Cinemas has beefed up security at theaters screening "Juice," a film opening today about four teens in Harlem, N.Y., one of whom goes on a killing spree. Some law enforcement officials have expressed concern that screenings of "Juice," despite having what has been described as an anti-violence message, could be accompanied by the type of violence reported last year at the openings of "Boyz N the Hood" and "New Jack City."

The urban action movie "Juice" won't open until Friday, but its advertising campaign is already stirring up emotions, based on the violent experiences that surrounded the openings last year of "New Jack City" and "Boyz N the Hood." "I hear it's a pretty good movie," said Mike Salgado of the Anaheim-based Parents Against a Gang Environment, ". . . but the trailers seem to show it as a gang movie." "Juice" is the story of four young men facing wretched conditions on the streets of Harlem.

The 'Juice' Report: Police said there were no reports of renewed violence during the second night of showings of Paramount's "Juice," a movie about inner-city youths. But violence flared at theaters in several states after the film's premiere on Friday. In Chicago, Tydsa Cherry, 16, was killed by a stray bullet from a fight between two boys waiting for tickets. An 18-year-old man was paralyzed from the chest down after he was shot coming out of the movie near Philadelphia. In East Lansing, Mich.

By some accounts, it's been a long summer. One week in, and Posh is ready to jump from a bridge (preferably one in Paris or San Francisco, where the shopping is decent and you can get a really good cup of coffee). The other morning, the little boy's first since school let out, he was playing with his trucks and singing his version of the national anthem, which is nothing like most versions of the national anthem. It has frogs in it. And dragons.

Nicolas Cage -- with a timely assist from college hoops -- powered sci-fi action picture "Knowing" to the top of the weekend box office with an estimated $24.8-million haul. The gross receipts were more than one-third better than those of its closest competitor, the comedy "I Love You, Man," which took in $18 million. Finishing third was the Julia Roberts vehicle "Duplicity," her first big leading role in half a decade. It brought $14.
