"Berberian Sound Studio" - the creepily offbeat new British independent film in which Toby Jones plays a timorous sound-effects specialist working on a '70s Italian horror flick - takes its title and inspiration from the late American mezzo-soprano Cathy Berberian. That's the least director Peter Strickland, whose title for the film is a new music in-joke, could do. But it is also the minimally least we can do to remember the singer who changed singing perhaps more than any vocalist since the 18th century castrato Farinelli turned Handel's and other Baroque composers' musical heads.

Dark tales of real-life crime dominate Hollywood's star-studded assault on the Venice Film Festival this year, with U.S. directors drawing inspiration from murder mysteries of the 1940s, '50s and '60s. The 11-day competition, held along the exclusive Lido beachfront across the water from Venice, kicks off today with the widely anticipated "The Black Dahlia," about two policemen assigned to investigate the brutal murder of an unknown actress.

If you've seen more than one Marvel Entertainment film, survived the standard cameos by Stan Lee and the obligatory appearances by Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, you would be more than forgiven for feeling you've seen enough. "Captain America: The First Avenger" is not the film to change your mind, but it does have something the others do not: Chris Evans in the title role. Evans has gone the Marvel route before, playing Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in a pair of "Fantastic Four" movies.

As admirable and ambitious as the folks at PBS Masterpiece are -- four tales of Charles Dickens in three months! -- it seemed inevitable they would run out of steam. (Eight hours of "Little Dorrit" is a lot of "Little Dorrit," even when it's good,0,1364897.story.) And they have, ending the series with a 90-minute version of "The Old Curiosity Shop" that streamlines plot, character and tone to the point that you have to wonder why they bothered.
