T VIDEO CORNER 'Home Alone 3* proves better than previous two Here are reviews on some of the current and upcoming videos: Home Alone 3 To my amazement, the most entertaining of the "Home Alone" movies — maybe because newcomer Alex D. Linz is a real charmer, or * maybe because at the end, when he sets the usual booby traps for the usual burglars, they come across as ROGER EBERT Universal Press Syndicate more pure slapstick, and less painful special effects. Fun for kids in the lower $ grades, and maybe for adults who are having a very silly day. Rating: Three stars. Oscar and Lucinda A 19th-century love story as quirky and delightful as it is unexpected. A British clergyman and an Australian woman who manufactures glass discover that they share a mutual passion for gambling. Shocking their community, they draw closer and make a grand wager: If she can build a glass cathedral, he will transport it by river to the outback. Starring Ralph Fiennes and Gate Blanchett, directed by Gillian Armstrong ("My Bril- liant Career"), wicked and witty, and charming. Rating: Four stars. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil John Berendt's book is so vividly drawn that a movie can hardly improve on our imagination. One miscalculation by director Clint Eastwood is to filter all the material through the eyes of a deadpan outsider (John Cusack), a character who never comes alive and gets in the way of those who do. The book's richness is further subdued by a screenplay that takes the eccentricity of a flood of anecdotes and harnesses them to a crime-and- courtroom framework. Kevin Spacey is wickedly charming, but underused, as the problematic antiques dealer; The Lady Chablis, a local drag queen, does a better job of playing herself than the filmmakers do of figuring out how to use her. Rating: Two and a half stars. The Locusts Sultry nights on the Plains, in a dated and overwrought — but well-made — melodrama about a twisted widow (Kate Capshaw) who runs a feedlot and takes a favored cowhand to bed with her most nights. Vince Vaughn plays the drifter with a secret in his past, Ashley Judd is the local woman who loves him, and Jeremy Davies is the woman's son, whose madness may have resulted from the dread se- crets of the past. The movie plays uncannily like one of those overwrought 1950s Freudian stockpots of lust and revenge. It's ridiculous, but it has a certain power. Rating: Two and a half stars. The Rainmaker One of the richest of the John Grisham stories, with Matt Damon as a young lawyer who opens a storefront office with a hustling paralegal (Danny DeVito) and finds himself juggling three tricky cases — one involving 1 wife- beating, another a dishonest insurance company. Francis Ford Coppola, who wrote and directed, makes it a colorful gallery of supporting performances, with good work by Teresa Wright, Claire Danes, Virginia Madsen, John Voight and Mickey Rourke. Rating: Three stars. The Sweet Hereafter Ian Holm plays a lawyer who visits a small, snowbound Canadian town where 14 children have died in a bus accident. As he meets parents and survivors and promotes a class-action suit, old wounds are opened, and the numbing grief of the town tends to humble and dismiss the legal process. Directed by Atom Egoyan and based on a novel by Russell Banks, the film is sad, touching and gentle, one of the best of the year. Rating: Four stars.
