10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana May p On The Record-- When trust takes a hike 7 TELL ME WHAT YOU DREAM All of your life/You hold out for love/You give what you have/But still that's not enough/Because now what we share/Are too many fears/Too many secrets/Too many years/Tonight. f By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST REFRAIN: Tell me what you dream at night/While you're sleeping/Tell me what you see at night/In your dreams./is it someone else's arms/That hold you tight,/Or darling, is it me?/Tell me what you dream/At night while you sleep. Deep in the night/You whisper so low/i lay by your sidedl feel so alone, alone/I reach for your arms/you call out a name/It wasn't my own/It caused me such pain inside. (REFRAIN TWICE) Written by Josh Leo, Vince Melamed, Timothy Schmidt Sung by Restless Heart Copyright (c) 1993 by BMG Music This column reviews Top Forty music. But consider some of the names on the Bill- i board charts during the last year: Billy Ray Cyrus, Kenny G, the "Al- addin" soundtrack cassingles, even Garth Brooks and George Strait The list is hardly a "Who's Who" of rock! Maybe I should get more with the times! Personally, I doubt if rock is fading away, but surely country has grown in popularity. I don't mind reviewing the country sound, especially when songs like Rest- less Heart's "Tell Me What You Dream" cross over to the pop charts. This song describes a sure way to wreck a romance. The guy in the song has a problem with trust. He hears the woman in his life whisper someone else's name during her sleep. This makes him feel anxious. He wants the woman to "tell me what you dream at night." He seeks to know, "Is it someone else's arms that hold you tight?" Clearly, he is overreacting. Instead of ques- tioning the woman, he needs to examine his own feelings. What is behind this intense jealousy? What are the fears that steal away his ability to trust? Relationships built on jealousy and fear are sure pathways to pain. These emotions influence us to control another's actions and choices. The other individual in a love rc may overlook such behavior for a time, but tually he or she will feel resentful. When thole no room to be yourself in a romance, there only control, not love. Overreactions or catastrophizing things that your dating partner says or rot deeper pains within yourself. Perhaps son who overreacts to such things has not over a rejection by someone he or she the past. Maybe one's current responses from the time when a person was hurt as Whatever the cause or origin of one's God's healing is available. However, we attain this healing by ignoring emotional We need to talk to a trusted individual ab feelings and painful memories. G can release the past hurt and anger. In most schools or parishes, there are who can help us find such healing or who refer us to individuals who do this ki When we try to control another's dreamS, problem lies within ourselves, not in the Start replacing jealousy and control with and healing.

USCC reviews of current movies NEW YORK (CNS)- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Confer- ence Office for Film and Broadcasting. "Dra-g-ollfTh3lruce Lee: Story" (Universal) Fact-based biography of the late martial-arts screen actor (played by the unrelated Jason Scott Lee) tells of his relocation from Hang Kong to the United States, an interra- cial marriage, the founding of his own martial-arts academy and his imminent crossover to movie stardom at the time of his death under mysterious circumstances in 1973. De- spite being based on the rose- tinted memoirs of Lee's widow, the Rob Cohen-di- rected movie captures Lee's personal life and struggle against discrimination while blending in numerous intense but well-choreographed fight sequences, A discreet bed- room scene and several vio- lent martial arts confronta- tions. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-III -- adults.' The Motion Picture Association of Amer- ica rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inap- propriate for children under 13. L "Lost. in Yonkers" (Columbia}. When their father must take a jobon the road for al- most a year, two World War II-era teen-agers (Brad Stall and Mike Damus) move in with a fearsomely cruel grandmother (Irene Worth), a ditzy, romantic aunt (Mer- cedes Ruehl) and a shady uncle (Richard Dreyfuss) hid- ing out from gangsters. Adapted from Nell Simon's play, the film is directed by Martha Coolidge, whose drama of comic one-liners is unabashedly sentimental in humanist treatment of a flawed family struggling to accept each other despite var- ied emotional problems. Fleeting violence, mild sex- ual references and minimal profanity. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-II--adults and adoles- cents. The Motion Picture As- sociation of America rating is PG m parental guidance sug- gested. "My Neighbor Totoro" (Troma) Mildly entertaining ani- mated feature from Japan re- counts the adventures of two small girls when their family mqves to old rural house where they discover, among other things, the fat, furry creature of the title whose magical powers at first frighten, then delight them. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki, the 1988 production does best with its fantasy of spirit creatures, some spooky but most benign, and there are some" lovely vistas of nature, especially when Totoro flies them over the countryside. But like the dubbing, the story line is rather forced and artificial. Some fun for the very young and those young in spirit. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is G -- general audiences. "The Night We Never Met" [Miramax) Time'sharing a Manhattan Funeral Homes I Four Convenient Locations apartment with two men she has never met, a married woman (Annabella Sciorra) decides to have an affair with one of them (Matthew Brod- erick) but accidentally sleeps with. the wrong guy (Kevin Family Anderson). Writer-director Warren Leight's dreary mis- taken-identity comedy takes a contrived situation and beats it to death with charmless characters and numbingly dumb dialogue. Benign treat- ment of casual dity, heavy some rough U.S. Catholic classification is O offensive. The Association is R -- restricted. focus on media cu WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Two U.S. Catholic Confer- ence officials and two parents will be panelists for a tele- conference on "Living in the Media Culture."
