FACE/OFF Special Collector's Edition DVD AWAY FROM HER Lionsgate -- $27.98 It is rare to see the luminous Julie Christie on the screen. She has never been enamored with the movie business and turns down far more roles than she accepts. But young director Sarah Polley was persistent, and Christie gave in. In this deeply moving tale, she plays a woman married for 50 years to a man (Gordon Pinsent), upon whom it dawns that his wife is slowly losing her mind to Alzheimer's disease. Co-starring Michael Murphy and Olympia Dukakis.

As long as it keeps everyone suspended in intoxicating and inchoate yearning, writer-director Jonathan Kasdan's In the Land of Women gives off the wistful zing of a ruined-romance tune from the '60s songbook. Carter Webb (Adam Brody), the hero, is a sensitive 26-year-old soft-porn writer in Los Angeles. He can supply double entendres and outlandish rationales for volcanic ids while on creative cruise control. Real amour throws him for a loop. In the Land of Women (Warner Bros.) Starring Adam Brody, Meg Ryan, Kristen Stewart, Olympia Dukakis.

For those of us who know how to save a buck and more efficiently use technology, caller identification boxes seem like a mighty waste of money. After all, an answering machine allows you to screen calls without having to squint at a little box with a telephone number on it to figure out whether you want to pick up or not. Nevertheless, the Olympia OL3000 InfoGlobe ($50) was such a neat gadget that I went ahead and sprang for Caller ID on my home telephone just to see it in action. With a brilliant floating LED display that shows telephone numbers, time and date of calls, current date and day, the Globe made Caller ID worthwhile for my middle-aged eyes.
