>TOP PICK: WHITE MISCHIEF If you missed this stinging political satire on the big screen, by all means catch it on video. You won't doze. Promise. The gorgeous Greta Scacchi stars as the bride of a titled codger. They join a group of British expatriates in Kenya to sit out World War II. This crowd is too busy cross-dressing and bed-hopping to bother about Hitler, especially when Scacchi's affair with Charles Dance ends in murder. Director Michael Radan eye-popping view of an empire doomed by its own decadence. (Nelson)

FOR ACTING: ANNA Oscar nominee Sally Kirkland plays a hard-up Czech actress betrayed by a young countrywoman, model Paulina Porizkova. Grand emoting; goofy movie. (Vestron)

FOR STRIPPING: AND GOD CREATED WOMAN Director Roger Vadim removed the clothes from Brigitte Bardot in the 1957 version; now, at 60, he does the same for Rebecca De Mornay in 1988. The plot? Who noticed? (Vestron)

FOR MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING: COLORS Despite the controversy, this film about cops Sean Penn and Robert Duvall battling L.A.'s black and Hispanic gangs has nothing on its mind but continuous headbashing. (Orion).
