But because its ambitions lie in the opposite direction. A director whose work COTMT tends to explode its subject, here scales things down. That said, "Get on the Bus" is hardly an exercise in subtlety. Not with a premise that finds 15 black men from L.A. taking a chartered bus on a journey to the Million Man March. They're as different in temperament as they are alike in skin color: The biracial cop (Roger Guenveur Smith), the angry actor (Andre Braugher), the Spike Lee has come up with his finest work, the tale of 15 men on their way to the Million Man March. old man (Ossie Davis) looking for spiritual renewal. There's a father (Thomas Jefferson Byrd) handcuffed to his teen son (DeAundre Bonds), and gay lovers (Isaiah Washington, Harry Lennix) grappling with the demise of their relationship. "Get on the Bus" offers\m- flinching insight into the hopes and fears of black men in modern America. Secrets & Lies Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn gives a gripping performance in "Secrets & Lies," a compelling tale of fractured family bonds that leaves you torn between laughter and tears. The conceit is surface simple: An emotionally unstable teen gives up her baby for adoption, and 30 years later that child comes to call. Only in this case the woman is white, the grown child is black. How is Blethyn's Cynthia Purly to explain things to her other daughter, just 21 and perpetually at odds with her mum? What about her brother and his wife? They know about the adoption, but not about the baby's black parentage. And Marianne Jean-Baptiste's Hortense is caught in the middle, an optometrist whose adoptive parents loved her well enough, yet :vho savors the illusion that her birth mother will somehow be special. Cynthia turns out to be special all right. A special kind of kooky. Emotional turbulence is the driving force of this domestic drama. A mother and daughter separated by social mores are tearfully reunited. Once they discard disbelief and skepticism, heartfelt things begin to happen. But heartfelt doesn't mean totally happy. TV / You'll need glasses to view 3-D FROM PAGE D1 NBC went with a different 3-D system than ABC. And as it goes, both networks insist theirs is the better one. You decide. The bottom line, with as little technical jargon as possible: ABC used the more traditional in-your-face, eye-popping kind of 3-D, utilizing two cameras that shoot every view simultaneously, but slightly differently. The two pieces of film are then overlayed at the lab to create the effect. NBC's technology creates more of a depth perception by moving the camera the opposite direction of how che actors or objects are moving. "It's designed to draw you into the television. We don't believe you can do 'Captain Eo' effectively in your living room," Turner said, referring to Disney's in- V THEATER your-face 3-D attraction starring Michael Jackson. ABC's system requires the typical red-blue glasses (you can pick them up at you local Wendy's). NBC uses glasses with one lens clear and the other smoky (available at participating Little Caesar's and where Barq's root beer is sold). Without the glasses, ABC's effects will look slightly fuzzy, while NBC's will maintain a clear image. "We've designed this so that even if you don't have the glasses, it will hopefully knock your socks off," said Joanou. And how is it that after all these years, two different networks decided to play 3-D games in the same sweeps period? Each claims coincidence, of course, and if you believe that, try taking off the goofy glasses.
