In the video for their breakthrough hit, "What Makes You Beautiful," the five Brit heartthrobs of One Direction cavort on the beach, looking wind-swept, clean-cut and ink-free. Yet, there they were - well, three of them, anyway - on a recent Tuesday evening at Tattooed Heart Studios in Glen Burnie, just off Ritchie Highway and around the corner from JP's Liquor Fair. Liam Payne was along for the ride as Zayn Malik was adorned with an image reminiscent of his girlfriend and Louis Tomlinson got tatted up with a spider web, a bomb and a rope.

Unmoored charm used to be Richard Gere's calling card. Skating over the razor's edge between seductiveness and smarm was his specialty as a performer even before he really mastered it as an actor and rooted it in a character's needs and impulses. Now that he's become a formidable leading man, that knack is just one tool in his kit. He's never shown truer colors or a wider spectrum than as that notorious faker Clifford Irving in The Hoax. And for Irving he forges a quality all his own: a serpentine virility.

In 1980, when a tube of Lancome lipstick sold for $8 instead of the current $25, I was selling cosmetics from behind the counter at Bloomingdale's in White Flint. I never thought years later my job would take me to a filthy alley in Baltimore where I would switch up lipstick for a comb and fake blood to embellish a fake bullet hole I had created earlier that morning on an actor's head. But 20 years later, that is exactly where my makeup career took me -- to decaying alleys, boarded-up houses and other precarious places in Baltimore for HBO's The Wire.

If any man should be more than the sum of his parts, it's an artist. But Todd Haynes' I'm Not There makes Bob Dylan less than the sum of his parts. It's like a tony art-school parlor game. Haynes, who directed and co-wrote (with Oren Moverman) this multipart biographical essay on Dylan, must have spent too much time wondering, "If I were a multifaceted, forward-moving, self-created singer-songwriter poet like Dylan, who would I get to play me?" What he arrives at is not one but a half-dozen performers who represent different phases of Dylan's life.

WALL STREET IS a-twitter about Martha Stewart's improbable role in an insider stock trading scandal, wondering who called whom and when did they call and what did they know when they called. But I can tell you what the rest of America wants to know: What's really going on between Martha and her hunky stockbroker? I'm sorry to be so banal, but it is hard for those of us who don't summer on the Vineyard or in the Hamptons to care how the rich and famous protect their investments. And those of us who made People magazine the success it is want to know if 40-year-old Peter Bacanovic is Martha's arm candy or Martha's boy toy. I mean, really.

Fans of old Hollywood movies live in hope - and usually in vain - for a male-female team with the oomph and durability of Hepburn and Tracy or O'Hara and Wayne. Since most films these days are designed as single-star vehicles, the balance typically isn't there and the possibilities elicit boredom or derision. This spring, the romantic hit of the season was "Bridget Jones's Diary," a showcase for Renee Zellweger with Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in supporting roles. Occasionally you get a Richard Gere willing to step back and showcase a Julia Roberts ("Pretty Woman," "Runaway Bride")

NEW YORK -- Like many Americans of my generation, I grew up putting change into envelopes for Christian missions in China and praying for the souls of people in that far land. It was God's work, saving souls whether they wanted to be saved or not. Now, all these years later, I think we might consider a 27-word China policy based on a prayer I remember this way:''God, grant me the courage to change what needs to be changed; the serenity to accept what cannot be changed; and the wisdom to know the difference.

Is it just me, or do you suspect these are not the times for an elegantly mummified, slickly vulgar movie that presents a wealthy, flamboyantly successful man, torn between his beautiful wife and beautiful mistress, as a victim?What utterly ruins "Intersection" is a strain of adolescent self-pity and sentimentalization delivered in a tone of shrieking hysteria, built around Richard Gere at his most irritatingly sensitive. He makes Richard Simmons look like Schwarzenegger!How this boy suffers!

BERLIN - More than two years after Paramount Pictures turned historic Berlin into the fictional village of Hale for the movie "Runaway Bride," the town continues to reap tourism benefits. "A day doesn't go by without someone coming in and asking about the movie," said Fran Murray, owner of Sassafras Station, an antiques, garden and gift shop. "If they didn't know it was filmed here, they do as soon as they get to town." And those people who come to Berlin, population 3,300, to see where the Julia Roberts-Richard Gere movie was filmed, typically spend money.

You're in the nuthouse, Mr. Jones. That's the gist of th drably titled "Mr. Jones," the picture that asks, "Have you hugged your manic-depressive today?"This is another in an endless litany of Hollywood films that hopelessly sentimentalizes the cruel condition known as mental illness and holds that somehow the "touched" are more pure, more innocent, more special than the rest of us. Their agony, or so runs the line, is a higher form of being.But give this one a tiny little sliver of credit.
