Watch out for the "new" new wave. In the September issue of Esquire, screenwriter L. M. Kit Carson has come up with a gimmicky but nonetheless noteworthy roster of rising film biz stars -- directors, writers, actors and producers.
These are folks, says Mr. Carson, who come out of the same new independent tradition as the Coen Brothers, Steven Soderbergh, Gus Van Sant, Spike Lee and John Turturro. He calls them the "Eleventh Generation" of Hollywood filmmakers (D.W. Griffith belonged to the first, silent stars Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton the second, and so on).
Prominent among the "Makers" is man-of-the-moment Tim Robbins, who wrote, directed and starred in "Bob Roberts," the political satire set for a Sept. 11 release.
