"A Boy Called Hate" is one of those excruciatingly shallow and deeply stupid lovers-on-the-lam movies that really sticks it to Mean Ol' Society, which has the bad sense to deprive certain deserving youths of what they want, be it a satisfying family life or just a new Pray for Rain CD. Here, the father-son tandem of James and Scott Caan play Dysfunctional Family Case No. 18,302-B.

The premiere of the new action movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" at the Mann's National in Westwood was as much a coming-out party for newlyweds Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton as a big summer movie premiere. Much attention was poured on the couple, wearing his-and-hers leather pants, who wed on the fly several weeks ago. They cuddled and posed on the red carpet, and Jolie proudly showed off her latest tattoo, which says "Billy Bob" in swirly script on her left arm. The after-party Monday night was, appropriately enough, at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Mid-Wilshire.

At once amusing, raucous and poignant, Leslie Zemeckis' "Behind the Burly Q" is the most comprehensive documentary on burlesque ever made, smoothly incorporating rare vintage stills, interviews and footage. Zemeckis, who has performed her own burlesque show, focuses on virtually all the top strippers of burlesque's golden era of the '30s through the '50s but also includes comics, straight men, musicians and novelty acts. These survivors are a hearty, robust group with a great sense of humor and colorful, often hilarious but sometimes painful memories.

Having written "Bugsy" (1991) and "The Gambler" (1975) and having directed what some feel was among the great debuts in American film--"Fingers" (1977)--James Toback carries around a credibility that's belied by almost every movie he's subsequently made (most recently 1998's "Two Girls and a Guy").

If the '40s origins of film noir were a reaction to the rose-colored America of World War II, then how should we view our ongoing mini-era of Noir Oblique? "Mulholland Dr.," "The Man Who Wasn't There" and now "Novocaine"--from first-time director ("Arizona Dream" writer) David Atkins--are films that don't just take a dark view of the soul, they suggest a template-shifting unreliability. All things considered, it's a tough thing to blame on the Taliban.
