TARSEM SINGH has made a lucrative living for 17 years as a sought-after director of commercials, videos and the creepy 2000 horror hit, "The Cell." As he told me, more in awe than in boast, he once made more money in one day shooting a commercial than his father did in 30 years as an aircraft engineer in India. And what did Tarsem do with most of that dough? Breaking the cardinal mantra of Hollywood, he spent it making a movie called "The Fall."

A year ago, the Telluride Film Festival set off the early fireworks for eventual Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis ("There Will Be Blood") and screenwriter Diablo Cody ("Juno"). Can this weekend's festival do the same for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Flash of Genius" and "Slumdog Millionaire"? Among North America's leading festivals, the Telluride gathering, which kicks off today, is clearly the most idiosyncratic. As organizers wait until the festival's opening day to announce the official schedule, attendees usually don't even know what movies they'll be seeing until they arrive in the mountain hamlet in Colorado.

The fall movie calendar is glutted with pictures--promising a feast for viewers and fierce competition among film distributors. Exhibitor Relations, a Los Angeles consulting firm, counts 34 movies set for September, compared with 20 a year ago. The October count is 49 vs. 24, and November looks like 21 vs. 20. But the numbers could change as companies try to squeeze in dozens of movies that don't yet have firm release dates.

HOW ironic that "The Fall," a movie described as "a dazzling visual fantasy" ("A 'Fall' No One Wants to Take," by Patrick Goldstein, June 26), filmed in beautiful locations in 24 countries, is not being shown in theaters because distributors can't visualize an audience market segment who would pay to see it. Ironic because this decision is made by people who continually distribute such movie dreck that theaters are empty much of the time and the film industry is wailing about its lost profits.

Ironies abound in the late-summer box-office wars. Just as Coca-Cola Inc. was announcing it was broadly restructuring its entertainment properties--including Columbia and Tri-Star Pictures--in order to incite more public stock purchases, two of Columbia's pictures, "The Big Easy" and "La Bamba," continued to light up the box office.

Hang onto the summer by talking about: Brian Wilson's "That Lucky Old Sun." Sounds like the 66-year-old is channeling his early Beach Boys days in this, his latest solo album celebrating all things SoCal. With songs including "Morning Beat" and "Forever She'll Be My Surfer Girl," his timing couldn't be better. (Tuesday) "The Fly the Opera" hits L.A. next month. Get ready by talking about: The original 1986 sci-fi masterpiece. Director David Cronenberg and the opera's composer, Howard Shore, will conduct a Q&A before screening a shiny new print of Cronenberg's cult classic at the ArcLight Hollywood.

The Indian film industry, which claims to be the world's biggest, is on the brink of financial disaster, with videotapes and television largely the culprits. Santosh Jain, president of the Film Distributors Council, says only 17 of 126 films released last year made money for their investors. Seven movie theaters have closed in Bombay alone this year. India's film output has been falling since a 1985 peak of 912 movies. It sank to 773 in 1988 and is expected to continue dropping.
