AS ANYONE who has seen GoodFellas or Casino can testify, Joe Pesci (right) is one of the scariest screen mobsters around. (Remember the chilling scene in GoodFellas when he turns on his pal Ray Liotta for suggesting he is a "funny guy"?). Pesci plays with that image in Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag (9pm Sky Moviemax). Tom Schulman's uneven black comedy, which is receiving its satellite premiere tonight, is showing as part of Sky Moviemax's "Disorganised Crime" season. The film revolves around a bag containing eight severed heads from Mafia hits which gets mixed up with a similar bag belonging to a student.

After the fascinating contest during the first two Tests, there will be added interest in the Third Test, West Indies vs Australia (2pm Sky Sports 3), which starts today in Bridgetown, Barbados.
