Think of Fitzgerald's Jay Gatsby, a romantic egotist to the end. Think of his wonderful shirts. Think of his clothes, his charm, his charisma, his American yearning to be better, to climb in society, to hang out with the swells.Now think of him pulling a snub nose and blowing a sucking chest wound into somebody, and you have "Bugsy."Warren Beatty's best film since "Bonnie and Clyde" and possibly Barry Levinson's best film, period, "Bugsy" is set squarely in the increasingly hard-to-find Neverland of adult moviemaking.

As if. Britney Spears -- the new Madonna? The longer the teen queen sticks around, the more she garners comparisons to the 43-year-old pop diva. On the surface, the analogy seems to work: Both are female superstars who earned their names with suggestive dance music and provocatively choreographed videos. But that's about as far as you can reasonably stretch it -- despite the best efforts of Spears herself, whose new album, Britney, seeks to establish her as a grown-up career artist a la Madonna.

"La Vita" is still "Dolce" all these years later but it somewhat lacks the spice it once had.In 1960, Fellini's "La Dolce Vita" ("The Sweet Life") was such a scandal that my friend Lanahan and I sneaked down to the North Side of Chicago and lied about our ages in order to find out what all the fuss was about. Lanahan was studying for the priesthood but he was willing to risk eternal damnation for a shot at Anita Ekberg's cleavage. My soul was not at stake; I had already sold it in order to become a movie critic.

New York. -- Thanks, Warren. Thanks, Demi. With civil war in the Balkans, flood in South Asia, famine in Africa, guns and disease in the streets, with Arabs and Israelis building atomic bombs from kits and old physics texts, it is good to see that life will go on -- and probably be better-looking than ever.It would be a shame to waste genes as handsome as those of Warren Beatty and Demi Moore. So a weary world turns its lonely eyes to Ms. Moore's life-filled and air-brushed belly on the cover of Vanity Fair and stock photos in the newspapers of the ever-boyish Mr. Beatty, whom some thought too young for paternity.

The movie marquee twinkles invitingly tonight, especially for the cable-connected, who have some difficult choices among films that qualify as classics.* "Twins" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Revealing Arnold Schwarzenegger's surprising softer side, and foreshadowing last year's under-appreciated "Junior," this 1988 hit pairs the big guy with the little guy: Danny DeVito. They're unlikely twins, product of a genetics experiment, and their touching search for their mother teaches them both some nice things.

Los Angeles -- There is a scene in "Bugsy" that proves a meal doesn't have to be hot to be spicy.Warren Beatty -- playing the title role -- and Annette Bening, as Bugsy's girlfriend Virginia Hill, engage in some post-dinner lovemaking that is so erotically charged, so believable, that surely it must have been ad-libbed. Tell this to Bening and she shakes her head of chestnut-colored Mary Pickford curls."Oh, no," she says, appalled at the idea. "No, that scene was entirely scripted. Everything was scripted."

For all the uproar that Spike Jonze's campaign video for Al Gore has created, one would think that this is the first time a Hollywood director has ever plied his trade in the service of Washington's myth-making machinery. In fact, politicians have used up-to-the-minute media to burnish their image at least as far back as the cave drawing at Lasceaux, which no doubt only slightly exaggerated the hunting prowess of that community's Alpha Male (or a candidate for Alpha Male). From those ancient glyphs to classical painting and sculpture to Mathew Brady's Civil War-era photographs, politicians have always wooed the premiere artists of the day to help get their faces - or, more important, their right faces - in the public eye. Abraham Lincoln was only half-joking when he admitted that Brady's iconic portrait helped him win the White House.
