One of filmdom's most compelling failures gets an airing tonight on The Movie Channel.Back in 1980, movie fans couldn't wait to see what director Stanley Kubrick would do with Stephen King's "The Shining" (9 p.m.-11: 25 p.m.), especially when the preview trailer showed an image that seemed to promise all sorts of macabre visions: a bleeding elevator.What they got when the film was released were some beautiful set pieces and sensational images.Unfortunately, there wasn't much of a story to surround all the wonderful pictures.

I'M ASHAMED TO ADMIT IT, BUT it's true: The guiding hand that introduced me to the classics of theater, film and even some literature was yellow, with four fingers. No, it wasn't a jaundiced and digit-deprived English teacher, but dozens of episodes of The Simpsons. Yes, I learned of the highbrow from those with no brows. It was the animated farce that introduced me to HMS Pinafore, Citizen Kane, A Streetcar Named Desire and even the works of Ayn Rand. Gullible do-gooder Ned Flanders, not Marlon Brando, was my first Stanley Kowalski.

There's a different energy in America on the eve of 1993, starting with the new tenants in the White House. We're about to install a first lady who's had a real career. (Nancy Reagan's fling in films and Jackie Kennedy's shutterbug stint don't count.) Hillary Clinton had to put her job on hold for a while, but she'll be keeping busy; too busy to keep a pet who needs to be walked. The first cat will take care of business discreetly and independently, thank you.And there is more to fashion in the year ahead with longer skirts, fuller pants and layered clothing.

When the NBA Finals shift back to Los Angeles, we should hold a big ceremony at midcourt before the game so Jack Nicholson can hand over one of his Oscars to Paul Pierce. Nicholson will probably be fine with it. He has three, after all (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Terms of Endearment, As Good As It Gets). And a thespian like Nicholson can certainly recognize what a beautiful acting job Pierce did in Game 1 of the NBA Finals when he looked as if he needed to have his leg amputated at one moment.

Set in the lower depths and shiny high-rises of a Boston where the church lacks the moral stature to control bingo, The Departed tells a tale of the bad luck of the Irish with black humor, zest and cumulative kapow that take off the top of your head. With The Departed, Martin Scorsese and his screenwriter, William Monahan, have turned the Hong Kong thriller Infernal Affairs into a low-down and majestic cops-and-crooks epic. Far better than Mystic River, it brings to the screen the compass-less Beantown of deteriorating parishes and drifting good-bad guys.
