Guilty By Suspicion (PG-13)

The film biography of Saddam Hussein. No,
seriously, a high school brat goes to Paris with his

The Doors (R)
Oliver Stone proves once and for all that he is the
most obnoxious, self-centered, pretentious
director in Hollywood. This is his story of Jim
Morrison. If it weren't for the good music and the
fact that Val Kilmer really looks like the Lizard
King, then this would be a total waste. Don't
bother tripping out beforehand; it won't help.
While driving to the theater, keep your eyes on the
road and your hands upon the wheel. (At Fox
