The Underneath Peter Gallagher, Elisabeth Shue (1995, MCA/Universal, R, priced for rental) A cool-blue revamp of the Burt Lancaster classic Criss Cross, this thriller tells of a handsome loser (Gallagher) who returns home to find his ex-flame (Alison Elliott) engaged to the local kingpin (William Fichtner), while his job as an armored-car guard offers easy temptation. Ex-prodigy director Steven Soderbergh (sex, lies, and videotape) is clearly going the Blood Simple route here, but he lacks both the wit and the nose for sleaze of the Coen brothers. The result is that snooze-inducing rarity, a tasteful film noir. On video, at least, you can use the rewind button to untangle the endless flashbacks. C
