• FILMS: 'Dumb and Dumber To,' 'Beyond the Lights'

    We have it on the authority of Forrest Gump that stupid is as stupid does. And so it proves with the broad comedy sequel “Dumb and Dumber To” (Universal). Though obviously well-intended, the romantic drama “Beyond the Lights” (Relativity) includes elements that make it problematic even for grown viewers.

  • Interview with star of ‘Dolphin Tale 2’

    Father Ed Benioff, director of the Office of the New Evangelization, “Radiate LA,” at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles had the opportunity to speak with Nathan Gamble, 16, one of the stars of “Dolphin Tale 2,” on how this film speaks volumes about overcoming adversity, the importance of volunteering, and most importantly, building a culture of love.

  • ‘Land of Silence and Darkness’: Filmmaker Werner Herzog and the deaf-blind

    Werner Herzog is the German filmmaker whose notion of “ecstatic truth” has brought him, among other places, to the Peruvian rainforest (“Aguirre, the Wrath of God”), death row (“Into the Abyss”), Antarctica (“Encounters at the End of the World”) and the Alaskan wilderness (“Grizzly Man”). But to me his finest film is “Land of Silence and Darkness,” a 1971 documentary about a 56-year-old German woman named Fini Straubinger. Fini suffered a fall down the stairs when she was 9. Several years later she went blind. Then she went deaf. Then her mother confined her to bed for three decades.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Boxtrolls,’ ‘Song,’ ‘Italy’

    The Boxtrolls (Focus): If Charles Dickens collaborated with Dr. Seuss, he might have produced this charmingly bizarre urban fable about rich and poor and things that go bump in the night. This 3-D adventure, featuring impressive stop-motion animation, is based on the 2005 children's book "Here Be Monsters!" by Alan Snow.

  • Reese Witherspoon says latest film inspires with Christian hope

  • Lost for Life: Documentarian Joshua Rofé on juvenile lifers

    Jacob Ind underwent horrific sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of his mother and stepfather. At the age of 15, he murdered them both.

  • Codes of conduct, Part I

    The above papal encyclical could have easily come from the pen of John Paul II or Benedict XVI or Francis as it relates to something not usually associated with the more historical letters that have emanated from the See of Peter — namely, motion pictures, television and radio.

25th anniversary of the martyrs of El Salvador: The current ‘coyuntura’ invites solutions

Rev. Michael Kennedy, S.J.

I remember visiting the University of Central America (UCA) in El Salvador with Jesuit Fathers Paul Locatelli and Steve Privett in 1988 and speaking with Father Ignacio Ellacuria, the president of the university. Father Ellacuria used the word coyuntura countless times during our lengthy conversation.
