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'ĂȘtre. 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)

When William Hurt dropped out of "Naked Tango" last year, it left the plum role of Cholo--a dangerous, seductive Argentine gangster/Tango dancer, circa 1924--waiting to be plucked by the right actor. At the time, Hurt's agent, Gene Parseghian, suggested the producers consider Vincent D'Onofrio, who was not a Parseghian client.

After a year and a half absence, Vincent D'Onofrio, 51, returns to "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" as the brilliant but troubled detective Robert Goren for the show's 10th season, which debuts May 1 on the USA Network. I like your character, Det. Goren, but he seems to get a mixed reaction. I think some people don't get him. It's always been like that. I think that's OK. It's not for everybody, especially the way I play him is not to everybody's taste. People, I think, unless they allow themselves to take the leap of faith, they don't like the intelligence, the ridiculous amount of knowledge he has. It doesn't make it easy in a 40-minute show to solve a crime [persuasively]

Just two months ago, a newspaper drama called "Deadline" was shooting on South Street in Lower Manhattan. Although most critics and viewers deemed it not a good show, what "Deadline" inarguably had going for it was a world-class view. Below the production office windows flowed the East River, and Brooklyn lay a mile beyond. "Deadline" was unceremoniously buried weeks ago, but Dick Wolf, its creator, knew a good thing when he saw it.

This distinctive 1993 film moves gracefully from knock-about high spirits to a kind of austere sublimity. The shifts in tone correspond to its portrayal of three generations of Italian-American women in New York's Little Italy following World War II. Carmela (Judith Malina) is the deeply superstitious mother of the neighborhood butcher (Vincent D'Onofrio), who wins his 17-year-old wife, Catherine (Tracey Ullman, pictured), in a pinochle game (Bravo Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday at 10
