The uninvitingly titled "Chlorine" is a flat, undercooked suburban comedy. Or is it a drama? Or maybe a kind of satire? Regardless, it's short on style, substance or any clear raison d'être. Set in a vaguely upscale New England berg called Copper Canyon (but filmed in New Jersey), the story attempts to lay bare the desperate times and desperate measures - relatively speaking, that is - of a circle of locals caught in the orbit of a shady construction deal. The film's nominal protagonist, beleaguered banker Roger Lent (Vincent D'Onofrio, in a strangely sleepy performance)

Actor Tom Sizemore, who is on probation for a 2004 drug offense, has tested positive for methamphetamines, a prosecutor told an L.A. judge Friday. The results of the test could be a violation of Sizemore's probation, which could land him in prison for 16 months. But his defense attorney told Superior Court Judge T.K. Herman that the test results were caused by prescription medication the actor is taking for depression.

Gone are the days when Tom Sizemore worked for A-list directors like Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott and Michael Mann. Gone too is the Cape Cod-style Benedict Canyon home -- once Gary Cooper's place, now sold by Sizemore to pay back taxes and lawyers' fees. Until a few weeks ago, the man once regarded as one of Hollywood's hottest up-and-coming actors was living in a garage at a sober living center in Whittier called My Father's House International.

There's an irony in meeting actor Tom Sizemore at the Four Seasons Hotel. Here's a guy who's recently played sociopaths and near sociopaths ("Natural Born Killers," "Devil in a Blue Dress" and "Strange Days") choosing a place that smells sweetly of Casablanca lilies and features marble floors, peach furnishings, piped-in classical music and the discrete air of big money. "I like the bar," he says. "And it's got air-conditioning."

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.

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.

IN this era of celebrity meltdowns, Tom Sizemore could arguably be the poster boy for actors spinning out of control. The burly character actor, who once worked with such A-list directors as Steven Spielberg on "Saving Private Ryan" and Michael Mann on CBS' 2002-03 cop drama "Robbery Homicide Division," fell into a life of drugs, wild sexcapades and run-ins with the law.
