WHAT WITH Taxi Driver, King of Comedy, The Untouchables, Cape Fear and GoodFellas, Robert De Niro has a peerless CV as a screen psycho. He adds to his portfolio with The Fan (10pm Sky Premier), a stylish offering from Tony Scott (Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State). De Niro plays a stalker contemplating murder as a way of ensuring his hero's (Wesley Snipes, right) place in his beloved baseball team.

Jodie Foster, who famously appeared alongside De Niro in Taxi Driver, has always been distinguished by the intelligent care with which she has played her roles - most notably in her two Oscar-winning performances, in The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs. Now she is making a name for herself as a Hollywood director and is profiled in tonight's Femmes Fatales (8pm Sky Moviemax).
