If you saw Krzysztof Kieslowski's new film, "Red," and fell in love with actress Irene Jacob--it's hard to imagine anyone seeing the film and not being enchanted by her--you'll be happy to hear that off-screen, the 28-year-old actress is a lot like Valentine, her character in the film. Radiantly beautiful, of course--anybody can see that like Valentine, Jacob is a knockout.

If the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences were a person, the caring thing would be to place it under observation for signs of a seriously split personality. For though most of its members either work or have worked for the major Hollywood studios making forgettable commercial pictures, when it comes to voting, academyites tend not to respect their meal ticket.

If "Red Rock West" once was a tough sell, it ain't any more. The celebrated movie, dubbed a "cowboy noir" by its distributors and a wicked black comedy by many critics, was headed to a quick fade-out on the movie-channel horizon until a San Francisco distribution company came to the rescue.

After a few weeks' lull since the Christmas onslaught, the fund-raising machinery went into high gear Friday for the first mid-winter, red-carpet movie premiere. Almost 700 people, from ICM's Jeff Berg to Maria Shriver (sans Arnold), trooped out to be the first to see "Intersection"--"a beautiful movie about relationships," as premiere committee chairwoman Mimi Meltzer put it.

The hottest thing in movie rentals is as old as the Coke machine -- and just as red. Redbox movie kiosks are popping up by the thousands in supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants and convenience stores around the country. The kiosks stock DVDs that rent for $1 a day, a remainder-bin price that is less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Film world: prepare for the war of the thumbs (again). Roger Ebert announced Friday on his Chicago Sun-Times blog that "At the Movies" would return to PBS stations in January. Produced by Ebert and his wife, Chaz, the weekly half-hour film review program — revamped as "Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies" — will continue the format first made famous by Ebert and the late Gene Siskel three decades ago, this time with film critics Christy Lemire of the Associated Press and Elvis Mitchell of NPR debating and issuing thumbs up or thumbs down reviews from red movie theater seats.

A documentary about the Boston Red Sox's 2003 season is due out soon and filmmakers allowed Red Sox fans to come up with the title. The somewhat optimistic "Still, We Believe: the Boston Red Sox Movie" won. The film follows the Red Sox from spring training to their late-inning collapse against the dreaded New York Yankees in Game 7 of the American League championship series. Other suggestions: "This Is the Year," "The Ecstasy and the Agony" and "Always the Bridesmaid."
