Picture Windows ★★ 1995 (R)

Three short cable movies inspired by works of art. “Lightning,” based on Frederic Remington sketches and a Zane Grey short story, finds western codger Keith striking gold with the help of his trusty mule. A David Hockney painting suggested “Armed Response,” which features a confrontation between a wealthy lawyer (Loggia) and a burglar (Zahn). And an anonymous 16th-century canvas “Two Nudes Bathing” is given an imaginative history. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Brian Keith, Robert Loggia, Steve Zahn, Charley Boorman; D: Joe Dante, Bob Rafelson, John Boorman. CABLE
