Willem Dafoe is briefly in Los Angeles from his home in Manhattan to rehearse with Madonna, his co-star in the upcoming film, "Body of Evidence," currently shooting in Portland. His trip comes at the tail end of a three-month vacation, and when he's asked how he spent those three months, he says, "I worked around the garage." This is somehow hard to picture. Dafoe is far too driven to while away the hours puttering.

Anyone familiar with Paul Schrader's work will not be surprised to learn that the title of his new film, "Light Sleeper," is taken from the Bible. A successful screenwriter ("Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull," "The Last Temptation of Christ") and occasionally successful director ("American Gigolo," "Mishima" and "The Comfort of Strangers"), Schrader is known for spinning dark morality tales whose most common theme is redemption.
