"I am like an enraged child," says Shinji Aoyama, the Japanese director whose highly lauded epic "Eureka" opened Friday in Los Angeles. Apparently, it is this rage that impels him to continue to make films, a process he finds both pleasurable and painful. "There are things much more painful in the world than making films," he says. "I make films to fight against those things."

Time is the ultimate critic, but there's every reason to predict that Shinji Aoyama's "Eureka" will become one of the landmarks of the world cinema of the first decade of the 21st century. It has a daunting three-hour, 40-minute running time but is so compelling and so completely accessible that it doesn't seem as long as most films half its length. This is a work of deceptive simplicity that grapples with the eternal theme of redemption with a Dostoevskyan intensity and scope.

They've stopped just short of selecting "Make Nice to America" as an official motto, but there's little doubt that this year's 54th Cannes International Film Festival is noticeably friendly to U.S. filmmakers in general and the Hollywood variety in particular. Some of this is a matter of coincidence. A festival of drum majorettes and pompom girls is being held in the neighboring town of Vallauris this weekend.

The UCLA Film and Television Archive and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's "Electric Shadows '97: A Pan-Asian Film Festival," one of the summer's richest film offerings, continues at UCLA's James Bridges Theater in Melnitz Hall and LACMA'S Bing Theater. Screening tonight at 7:30 at UCLA, Quentin Lee and Justin Lin's droll, stylish "Shopping for Fangs" is ostensibly a psychological thriller with amusing supernatural overtones.

Godzilla has finally met his match: Japanese red tape. Pity Toshimasa Ishii, the 29-year-old location manager for the latest Godzilla film. His job is scouting out sites where Japan's most famous monster can strut his terrible stuff. Godzilla first stomped across the silver screen in 1954, so American fans might assume that getting permits to shoot the Tokyo background for the reptile's special-effects rampage would by now be fairly routine.
