Maintaining privacy in the digital age is no easy feat ? particularly if you are the subject of a movie. And yet Angela Wesselman-Pierce, the woman who holds the key to the mystery at the center of "Catfish," has remained a quiet enigma for more than eight months since the movie became a sensation at the Sundance Film Festival. She's avoided requests for interviews about the film, which is being marketed as a documentary thriller and has taken in more than $1.6 million at the box office since its Sept.

For roughly its first half hour, "Waist Deep" looks as if it's going to amount to something solid among so-called "urban thrillers." Much like its hero, an ex-con-turned-single dad-security-guard named O-2 (Tyrese Gibson), the movie shows an unsteady, yet earnest resolve to fulfill modest expectations. And then, everything flies off the rails. Hope for the movie holds out just a little bit longer than for O-2 -- or "O" for short. He's so into being the dutiful dad rushing to pick up his son (H.

With an estimated take of $22 million, "The Forgotten" opened more memorably than industry projections had indicated going into the weekend. It was the biggest opening to date for Julianne Moore in the first major studio picture she has carried as the main star.

In the chintzy-looking gore-bore "Seed of Chucky," Jennifer Tilly, playing herself, defines hell as ending up on a celebrity feud show in a worm-eating contest with Anna Nicole Smith. Compared to this movie that fate doesn't sound half-bad. It opens in Hollywood, where production is underway on "Chucky Goes Psycho," with Tilly voicing Chucky's wife, Tiffany (which she did in the 1998 "Bride of Chucky").

"Cry Wolf" is a clever teen thriller with intricate plotting, deft characterizations, sharp ensemble performances and a darkly ironic twist at the end. It marks the feature debut of its co-writer and director Jeff Wadlow, winner of the first Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival competition, which enabled him to make this movie, written with his producer Beau Bauman, a fellow graduate of USC's School of Cinema-Television.
