Brian De Palma isn't talking, and neither is Paramount, but indications are that the outspoken director has bowed to pressure from the studio and the Motion Picture Assn. of America to make cuts in his new movie "Snake Eyes." De Palma blasted the MPAA last week and said he would not trim the film to get a PG-13 rating, maintaining the cuts would damage the movie. He said he would appeal the ratings board decision to give it an R rating without the cuts, despite a lack of support from the studio.

Brian De Palma, the film director whose explicitly violent and erotic movies frequently ran afoul of the Motion Picture Assn. of America in the 1970s and early '80s, is battling the MPAA again--this time over a relatively tame political thriller that contains no nudity, no power saws, not even a bloody straight-edged razor. "Snake Eyes," which stars Nicolas Cage and Gary Sinise, has been given an R rating on the basis of language and violence.

It's been more than three weeks since Madonna has caused any kind of public commotion. After the publication of her coffee-table book "Sex" and the ratings squabble involving her film "Body of Evidence," we came to expect weekly developments. Her last big headline-grabber: ripping up a photo of tabloid and TV movie king Joey Buttafuoco on "Saturday Night Live" a la Sinead O'Connor. The singer-actress-author is keeping a low profile, sources say, while preparing for Abel Ferrara's "Snake Eyes."

It was as if the legendary mobster himself had rolled the dice and come up snake eyes. "Bugsy," the TriStar film that pulled in a leading 10 Academy Award nominations, won only two Oscars on Monday night. And those were for art direction and costume design.
