Though he was only on the screen for a matter of seconds, the most important film role he ever had was in "Apocalypse Now," says Scott Glenn.That's surprising, considering that Glenn has worked in dozens of movies since, including "The Right Stuff," "The Hunt for Red October," the current "The Silence of the Lambs" and "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" (which opened nationally yesterday but has not yet opened in Baltimore)."What I got out of that film ["Apocalypse"] was a sense of self-confidence in myself as an actor," Mr. Glenn says.

Freedom Writers is the rare inspirational-teacher film that is filled with genuine, jaw-dropping coups of real-life poetry. Set in the early '90s, it's based on the true story of black, Asian-American and Latino gangs who disrupted the upper-class, white demographic of Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach, Calif., in the first years after busing. Faced with a clueless faculty, they exploded the placid atmosphere. In the xenophobic frenzy that followed the Rodney King verdict, they turned the school into a war zone.

''My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys'' uses elements from the ''Rocky'' and ''Karate Kid'' movies, combines those with plot turns used in ''Dad'' and does surprisingly well with all. If the new film doesn't send you out of the theater cheering, it should make you feel better than you did before you saw it.It has its moments of realism, domestic and otherwise. Scott Glenn plays the rodeo rider who returns home when he is seriously injured. Being the kind of guy he is, the man who will always be a boy, he expects to find all things as they were.

'My Heroes Have AlwaysBeen Cowboys'Starring Scott Glenn, Ben Johnson and Kate Capshaw.Directed by Stuart Rosenberg.Released by Goldwyn.Rated PG.**"My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" tries so hard, but there's not a stroke in it that isn't predictable. Its heroes have always been cliches.It's a great movie for faces, if nothing else. Scott Glenn's looks as if it's hewn from rawhide that's been weathered on a fence post for a couple of decades. Ben Johnson's has the patina of a bronze shield from the Peloponnesian Wars, with a few whack-marks where Thucydides himself took a swordswipe at the holder.

Buffalo Soldiers offers razor-fanged black humor about the American military going loco during peacetime. A kinetic riff on U.S. Army mores and the go-getting Yankee character, it moves so confidently and brightly that it's ticklish as well as chilling - and, in its own dark way, enthralling. Set on a U.S. Army base in Germany at the end of the Cold War, it's about what happens when security forces become insecure in purpose and morality. Postponed initially because of 9/11, this movie actually flatters wartime service, by inference.

Backdraft" has spectacle, it has stars, it has love, death, pain and lots of fire. But what it needed most was a final draft.The movie, covering a heroic bunch of firefighters in Chicago, seems like a jumble of scenes from a variety of unrelated "fire" projects. Some of the stories it tells don't even really touch some of the other stories.And director Ron Howard, who has been a quiet technician of high craft level and low ego level (as in "Splash" and "Parenthood"), is suddenly coming on like an auteur, filling the movie with attention-milking stylistic tropes while a truly wretched score beats you on the skull with a tambourine.

Quantico, Va.--It's no wonder actor Scott Glenn, who portrays the FBI's expert on serial killers in the movie "The Silence of the Lambs," still has nightmares.He and co-star Jodie Foster spent a week at the FBI Academy with John Douglas -- the real-life expert on serial killers and the head of the FBI's National Center for Analysis of Violent Crime -- and got a taste of what Mr. Douglas does for a living.For starters, Mr. Douglas, 45, and far more engaging and jollthan the movie character based on him, played audio and video tapes for Mr. Glenn of killers torturing their victims.
