Stephen Low tried to avoid becoming a filmmaker, having spent "too many hours around film sets" as a youth, when his father was making notable documentaries in the early 1950s. A self-described "outdoors guy," the 47-year-old Canadian director--his Imax 3-D movie "Mark Twain's America" opens today (review, Page 18)--recalls that he "fell into filmmaking" through the peculiar circumstance of working as a scuba diver in Newfoundland.

Stephen Low's 40-minute "Titanica" (at the IMAX Theater) offers an eerie, thrilling and poignant voyage to the bottom of the sea for a close-up look, via submersibles, of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic. The "unsinkable" ship--11 stories high and two blocks long--was fatally cleaved 80 years ago by an iceberg off Newfoundland, resulting in the loss of more than 1,500 lives.

IMAX theaters in several Southern cities have decided not to show a film on volcanoes out of concern that its references to evolution might offend those with fundamentalist religious beliefs. "We've got to pick a film that's going to sell in our area. If it's not going to sell, we're not going to take it," said Lisa Buzzelli, director of an IMAX theater in Charleston, S.C., that is not showing the movie. "Many people here believe in creationism, not evolution."

With his latest Imax 3-D film, "Mark Twain's America," director Stephen Low ("Across the Sea of Time") has brought a curiously old-fashioned and at the same time high-tech gloss to one of the longest-lived cottage industries in American social and literary history: Twainiana.

Movies often thrive on the spectacle of one or two dauntless characters taking on "impossible" tasks: Kevin Costner dancing with wolves, Macaulay Culkin surviving a weekend home alone. But it would be hard, ever, to top the feat accomplished on-screen by the amazing co-stars of the new IMAX film, "Beavers" (at the Museum of Science and Industry's IMAX Theater). I'm awe-struck by these two--even though they're nameless, and unrepresented by ICM. They're round, furry, brown.

The first thing to do when you climb in the passenger seat alongside Mario Andretti is fasten your seat belt -- tightly. He does not drive slowly, and never did. Andretti's race car is a single-seater, but he's still taking passengers along for the ride at speeds pushing 230 mph. And there are no seat belt reminders necessary. "Super Speedway" is only a movie, although it's as close to the real thing as director Stephen Low and the Andrettis, Mario and his son, Michael, can provide.
