The National Society of Film Critics went the counter-Oscar route yesterday, voting its best film and best director awards to "Out of Sight" and Steven Soderbergh. Heavy Oscar favorite Steven Spielberg and his World War II epic, "Saving Private Ryan," led in early ballotting, cast yesterday at the Algonquin Hotel, but the film finished third behind "Out of Sight" and "Affliction," and Spielberg finished in a second-place tie with Terrence Malick, who directed the year's other big war epic, "The Thin Red Line," which opens in Boston Friday. "Out of Sight," a frisky crime caper starring George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez, was a critical favorite last summer but not a box-office hit. Late last year The Boston Society of Film Critics also named it best film.
