Set in an East Texas work prison in 1976, the turgid indie "Cellmates" pairs an incarcerated Klan bigwig (Tom Sizemore) with a happy-go-lucky Mexican fieldworker (Hector Jimenez). The bigot endures the lectures of a potato-farming-obsessed warden (Stacy Keach, full throttle) and falls for a pretty Latina maid (Olga Segura). Really, you can't blame Sizemore for turning the simplest physical movement or line of dialogue into a hoedown of over-gesturing. Co-writer/director Jesse Baget's incessantly talky mix of faux-Coens-style redneck grandiloquence and un-Coens-like visual flatness leaves the fidgety star trapped in garish close-up for most of the film.

L.A. police said they arrested actor Tom Sizemore Thursday morning on a warrant issued on a 2007 drug case in Bakersfield. He was booked and released. Court records in Bakersfield show that Sizemore's probation was revoked by a judge in April. Several of Sizemore's one-time managers and an attorney said they no longer represent the actor, whose credits include "Saving Private Ryan," "Black Hawk Down" and "Pearl Harbor."

Gangland violence shreds a community and shatters a family in "Splinter," the feature debut of Michael D. Olmos. Despite some imaginative elements and a knockout performance by Tom Sizemore, "Splinter" feels very much like a first effort. With its recycled themes and muddled storyline generating a cascade of unanswered questions, the film is more about style than substance. One of its stylistic triumphs, however, is an opening title sequence that in itself almost makes the film worth watching.
