Screen legend Isabelle Huppert (La Dentellière, Les Soeurs Brontë) headlines acclaimed director Alessandro Capone's gently-spun yet intransigent psychodrama L'Amour caché (2007). Huppert plays Danielle, a middle-aged woman rebounding from the trauma of an unsuccessful suicide attempt, and wrestling resolutely with the inner demons that propelled her into that tragic emotional state. Greta Scacchi (White Mischief) co-stars as Dr. Nielsen, the psychiatrist assigned to guide Danielle through therapy and recovery. Though the patient initially presents herself as unwilling to vocalize, in time she picks up a pen and attempts to write, letting the words flow out of her, cathartically, onto paper…..

The ugly American bullying his way through a foreign country was a subject for comedy in several films of the 1980s, most notably Bill Forsyth's Local Hero and this film from exiled Yugoslavian director Dusan Makavejev. Eric Roberts plays Becker, an aggressive marketing executive for the Coca-Cola Company; he has been assigned to figure out why sales in hot and dry Australia aren't higher. Becker comes up against a low-key but formidable adversary, T. George McDowell (Bill Kerr), whose homegrown soda has cornered the market in his little corner of the country. Complicating matters is Terri, a local woman (Greta Scacchi) Becker hires as his secretary; she's McDowell's daughter and a single mom who's romantically attracted to the brash American. Becker wants to make a deal on his (and his employer's) terms, but he finds himself falling prey to the charms of life Down Under and the ministrations of Terri.

This CD invokes the presence of the divine mother. I listend to this CD while at a week long silent meditation retreat. It filled me with a gentle joy, peace and immense loving kindness. It is very calming, gentle and nurturing. It features the following songs: Ganesh Invocation, Devi Prayer and Lalitha Ashtotram, which is a Sanskrit mantra of the 108 sacred names of the mother divine. ~ Brad VanAuken

Robert Altman takes a scalpel to Hollywood ethics in the 1990s (or the lack thereof) in his acidic satire The Player, adapted from Michael Tolkin's novel. The film concerns a sleek and smooth Hollywood studio executive Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) who starts receiving death threats from a disgruntled writer because he has committed the ultimate Hollywood sin – he promised the writer he would call him back and he never did. But The Player finds Griffin's comfortable life style in danger of collapse. He is trying to find a way to unload his girlfriend (Cynthia Stevenson) whose independence and intelligence make her a poor candidate for a trophy wife. More importantly, it seems that Larry Levy (Peter Gallagher), a slippery executive from Twentieth Century Fox, is angling for his job. And then there are those nasty postcards and faxes from a screenwriter threatening to kill him. Altman cast over 65 stars in cameo roles as texture for his scabrous tale.

Sessantaquattro caselle. Trentadue figure. E una possibilità combinatoria pressoché infinita. Nessuna partita di scacchi è uguale a un'altra. Ognuna è una sfida unica, giocata su quel quadrato magico che è la scacchiera: quasi un mondo fuori dal mondo. Paul Morphy è stato un autentico artista della scacchiera, forse il più grande. Nella sua brevissima parabola, sospesa sull'esile filo che separa la genialità dalla follia, ha incarnato alla perfezione l'essenza del "nobile gioco". Chi era in realtà Paul Morphy? Quali accadimenti spensero la fiamma del suo genio, inducendolo ad abbandonare per sempre gli scacchi all'apice della carriera, e a ritirarsi in una grigia esistenza di solitudine? Il racconto di Paolo Maurensig ricostruisce fedelmente le partite, i successi, le incredibili esibizioni di Morphy, e al tempo stesso svela le pieghe più segrete della sua vita, fino al duello dei duelli, la sfida che nessuno ha mai potuto vedere.
