FROM THIS EPISODE

Love at first sight can be as dangerous as it is exciting, and the sme goes for love at first screening. I fell hard and heedlessly for a film called An Education, which happened to be the first of 14 films I managed to see in the course of three movie-besotted days at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day weekend...

Most of the movies at Telluride were meant to entertain, but Jacques Audiard's A Prophet stretches the concept of entertainment by taking us into the brutish world of a French prison...

Literary legends come to life in Michael Hoffman's The Last Station, a superb -- and really entertaining -- evocation of Tolstoy's last months on earth, and Jane Campion's Bright Star, which dramatizes the relationsip between the Romantic poet John Keats and his shy young neighbor Fanny Brawne...

If a prize had been given for the most awkward title...it might have gone to Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans...
