12 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana /i -\\; Who dares to love forever? By CHARLIE MARTIN Catholic New Service WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER? There's no time for us/There's no place for us/What is this thing that/Builds our dreams/And yet slips away from us? REFRAIN Who wants to live forever?/Who wants to live forever? There's no chance for us./It's all decided for us./This world has only one sweet moment/Set aside for us. (REPEAT REFRAIN) Who dares to love forever?/Why must love die?/Just catch my tears with your ears/Touching my warm heart/With your fingertips/And we can have forev- er/And we can love forever/Forever is our place. (REPEAT REFRAIN) Forever is our place/who waits forever anyway? Written by Brian May Sung by Queen Copyright (c) 1997, The Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund Can you outlive death? Sounds like a crazy question! Of course not, you might respond. Yet the power and gift of human life can live beyond death, as we witness in the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. The "Diana -- Tribute" CD disc features music by some of the most renowned artists in today's music. A message on the disc informs us that prof- its will be used to help "the many causes which the princess held dear.'" Clearly; her death has not stopped the positive effects of her life. The first cut on tile CD is Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever?" Queen's style features lots of decibels, and once more, their vocal power is obvi- ous on the recording. Beyond the music, their ques- tion is intriguing: "Who wants to live forever?" During the teen years, death seems distant, perhaps "forever" distant. However, accidents, sui- cide and illness take teen lives. These occurrences remind us of death's certain reality. The song says that "there's no chance for us, it's all decided for us, this world has only one COMMUNICATION NEW YORK (CNS)- The fol- lowing are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the US. Catholic Conference (USCC) Office for Film and Broadcasting. Ratings are also given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "Caught Up" (Live) Formula thriller set in Los Angeles' South Central 'hood where an ex-con (Bokeem Wood- bine) falls for a woman (Cynda W'dliams) who gets him involved with the loot from a big jewel heist, then finds he's been set up to take the fall for the crime. Writer-director Darin Scott offers a slick but uneven reworking of the old premise in which an inno- cent man is caught up in a web of desperate doings which he must unravel at the risk of his life. Gory violence, a sexual encounter with brief nudity, numerous sexual references and much rough language. The USCC classification is A-IV adults, with reservations. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Hush" (Tn43tar) Inept thriller in which apos- sessive morn (Jessica Lange) tries to get her son (Jonathon Schaech) back by murdering his pregnant wife (Gwyneth Paltrow). Directed by Jonathan Darby, the trashy plot is too predictable to hold interest and the schemes of the evil mother too obvious to sustain credibil- ity, with ludicrous results. Men- acing situations, an attempted ,rape, a difficult childbirth sequence, fleeting nudity and profanity. The USCC classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rating is PG-13 -- par- ents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappro- priate for children under 13. -- adults. The MPAA rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for chil- dren under 13. "U.S. Marshals" (Warner Bros.) Pale spinoff from the 1993 thriller, "The Fugitive," with its iron-willed lawman (Tommy Lee Jones)doggedly pursuing a escaped murder suspect (Wes- ley Snipes) who is out to find whoever framed him. As direct- ed by Stuart Baird, the action is nonstop, but thin characteriza- tions and a hokey plot make the film unmemorable. Gory vio- "Love and Death on Long Island" (Lions Gate) Wryly observed tale of a fusty English author (John Hurt) whose crazy crush on a young movie star (Jason Priest- ly) prompts him to visit Amer- ica and change his old-fash- ioned ways while trying to ingratiate himself with the gullible actor. Director Richard Kwietniowski depicts an aging recluse awakening to the con- temporary outside world in poignant terms that are gently humorous. A live-in relation- ship, veiled homosexual refer- ence, minimal profanity and an instance of rough language.
