Page 22 ENTERTAINMENT Friday, October 25,2002 Scary flick muddled, mindless By STEPHEN HOLDEN New York Times News Sen/ice The visual cliches are predictably in place in "Ghost Ship," an incoherent supernatural thriller that would like to think of itself as a Halloween- ready horror fusion of "The Perfect Storm" and "Titanic." The story follows the crew of the Arctic Warrior, a tugboat, as it tries to At Hi A salvage the Anto- Mt III6 n j a G raza> an Italian luxury liner that mysteriously pops up movies in the heaving blue-gray desolation of the Bering Sea. The liner, which disappeared without a trace off Labrador in 1962, is a direct descendant of the Titanic. And the hardy sailors of the Arctic Warrior resemble those of the "The Perfect Storm," right down to the striking similarity of the Arctic Warrior's first mate, Maureen Epps (Julianna Margulies), to Mary Elizabeth Mastran- tonio's character in "The Perfect Storm." The splashy opening scene relives that moment 40 years earlier when the liner met its fate. As elegantly attired dancers swirl around the ship's grand ballroom, catastrophe suddenly rains.

For some reason, those souls have remained trapped in a supernatural time warp for 40 years. "Ghost Ship" is so preoccupied with delivering its effects that it doesn't bother to make sense of its story.

And there are the obligatory fireballs, one of which consumes the Arctic Warrior, leaving its crew stranded aboard the ominous liner. If the movie sustains an eerie visual mood, its screenplay is frustratingly sketchy. And with the exception of Margulies' sensible first mate, the acting (by Gabriel Byrne, Ron Eldard, Desmond Harrington, Isaiah Washington, Alex Dimitriades and Karl Urban) is at best functional.

"I found it gross, weird," says Hayek — the star of such widely diverse films as "Dogma," "Desperado" and "Wild Wild West" — about her first encounter, as a young girl in Mexico, with her nation's iconic self- portraitist's surreal, singular work. "I didn't like it. And then I walked away from it and couldn't get rid of the images in my head. They haunted me, and I wanted to see them again. And I wanted to discover why they were haunting me. It took me many years to answer this question, and the reason is that she had such bold honesty about her intimacy that it was hard to take." That fascination has finally resulted in "Frida." Hayek plays the artist from teenage schoolgirl through the horrible bus accident that left her deformed and in constant pain, her tumultuous marriage to the famed muralist Diego Rivera (played by English actor Alfred Molina), her many love affairs with men and women (including exiled Russian DANCE Valley Inn ROUTE 286, PURCHASE LINE 10:00 P.M.-1:30 A.M.

Directed by Julie Taymor ("The Lion King" stage musical, the of Shakespeare's "Titus"), the movie also tries to visually capture the spirit of Kahlo's paintings. Combining Mexican folk-art influences with the fact that the often- bedridden Kahlo had only her own mirror images for a model, she was prone to placing herself — usually with connected eyebrows and more than a hint of a mustache — at the center of nightmarish dreamscapes that reflected her inner conflicts. Marriage, miscarriage, death, transcendence —• all were apt subjects for Kahlo's brush. Hayek wanted to get all of that into the movie, along with so many of the other elements that made the life of Frida Kahlo so fascinating. But above all, she wanted the film to ex- press the subject's love for living and creativity in a way that was as unique to the ever-unconventional Kahlo. as it would be to the generally desultory genre of tortured-artist biopics. "She loved life," Hayek says. "This is a love story between a woman who lived hard times and her passion for life. And the best way to tell that story was through her love story with Diego." Some Kahlo fans, of course, might find the film's focus on that central relationship hard to take. When reduced to its fundamentals, after all, Kahlo's reputation as a feminist pioneer seems to orbit a widely held image of her as the long-suffering wife of an incorrigible womanizer. Hayek has no use for either simplistic stereotype. "Probably, it helped me that I don't see her as a victim," says the actress, who underwent everything from unflattering facial hair applications to monkey bites for her performance. "I don't think you're a victim when you have your husband cheat on you and you realize you're not going to change him, but instead of crying and becoming pieces, you say, 'OK, I'll just have romances with other people, too.
