ILLUMINATA (119 mins., R) Theater folk celebrate the theater life in a handsome, airless meditation on art, celebrity, love, and rampant repertory-group horniness, set in turn-of-the-century New York. John Turturro, who wrote and directed, stars as the company’s resident playwright. Big yuks at the expense of critics are provided by Christopher Walken as a loveless gay fop. C+
