TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday March 26, 1999 Don't go to "The Mod Squad" expecting a replication of the TV series that ran from 1968 to 1973, for director Scott Silver and his co-writers have delivered something better than nostalgia. Using the series premise, which takes...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday March 17, 2000 Amos Gitai's somber, elegiac "Kadosh," which means "sacred" in Yiddish, takesus into the sequestered world of Mea Shearim, the Orthodox Jewish quarter of Jerusalem, where its devout citizens are committed to preserving an...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday March 10, 2000 Better than Harrison Ford, John Travolta or even Leonardo DiCaprio, getting the devil involved in your picture is a sure way of getting it made. Not necessarily as a producer or financial backer (though that probably wouldn't...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday February 25, 2000 "Reindeer Games" is genre all the way, a standard brand updated with the requisite modern touches. Its twisty film noir world of down-on-their-luck men and unfathomable women is vintage B-picture material, but, in the...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday March 3, 2000 Bosnian-born filmmaker Jasmin Dizdar sets the tone for his bravura allegory "Beautiful People" right at the start, as two men, one a shaggy Croat (Faruk Pruti), the other a swarthy Serb (Dado Jehan), recognize each other on a...

Courant TV CriticHospitals, morgues, courtrooms and nostalgia - that's where you'll again find most of the action in the new television season. • • • Cops and hospitals. Hospitals and cops. It's a topical cul-de-sac on TV, where the highest-rated shows in recent...
