A weekly update of film releases

* INTERVISTA - Life, memory, and the truth and illusion of cinema are the most important threads in this partly autobiographical film by Federico Fellini, who explores the joys and mysteries of his own career through a time-traveling story about past and present events that occupy his thoughts while he prepares to shoot a new picture. The movie isn't always absorbing, but at its best it's as breathtaking as anything the European cinema has given us in years. (Not rated)

* STORYVILLE - An aspiring politician gets tangled up with murder and other nasty business in this baroquely plotted, frequently violent mystery yarn. Written and directed with much competence but not much distinction by Mark Frost, who created the "Twin Peaks" television series with David Lynch. (Rated R)
