      EDITOR'S PICK

      "Under Fire"
      ...available here

      This savvy political thriller of journalists in war-torn Nicaragua follows ace photojournalist Russell Price (Nick Nolte) from the jungles of Africa to the Central American boiling point. Although the setup is traditional, Roger Spottiswoode's film feels as alive and vital as the best of the genre. Along with the usual band of fellow journalists, there's another memorable Gene Hackman performance as a rival who believes he's one career-making story from a lofty news anchor position.

      FEATURED BARGAIN OF THE WEEK

      "The China Syndrome"
      ...available here

      Although the movie was quickly overshadowed by real events (the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster occurred days after the film opened), "The China Syndrome" remains a nervy thriller that expertly mixes pop entertainment with a contemporary morality play. Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas star as the reporter-and-cameraman team who discover a crisis in a pearly white nuclear power plant. Jack Lemmon gives one of his most compelling performances as the plant's manager, who learns unsavory truths about his company and then reacts with dire results. Although shut out at the Oscars, this 1979 film won top acting honors for Lemmon at the Cannes Film Festival. It comes to DVD for under $15.
