Not coming soon to theaters in Hong Kong: "Seven Years in Tibet," "Kundun" and "Red Corner." In the clearest sign of self-censorship since Hong Kong returned to Chinese sovereignty, three U.S. films thought likely to offend China have yet to find a buyer here. Two of the movies, Columbia/TriStar's "Seven Years in Tibet," starring Brad Pitt, and Walt Disney Co.'s "Kundun," directed by Martin Scorcese, focus on China's invasion of Tibet, homeland of exiled Buddhist leader the Dalai Lama.

The first image of "Kundun," Martin Scorsese's film about the early life of Tenzin Gyatso, the Dalai Lama, is a striking close-up of a beautiful mandala painted in sand. And the first sounds, also close-up, thanks to the loud, aggressive multichannel sonics that the cineplexes employ, are equally striking.

For some, Heinrich Harrer's apology simply isn't good enough. The Austrian mountaineer and onetime member of the Nazi Party, who in the '40s tutored the Dalai Lama and chronicled human-rights abuses in Tibet, is the subject of TriStar's October release "Seven Years in Tibet," starring Brad Pitt as Harrer. Because of Pitt's starring role and the growing interest in the Dalai Lama and Tibet around the world, TriStar believed it had a potential hit on its hands.
