" To tell the truth ,:,7 Written by Elton JohnFFaupin Sung by Elton John ByCHARLI E MLRTI N Copyright(c) 1997 by William A. Bong Ltd. Elton John's latest hit, "Recover Your Soul," off RECOVER YOUR SOUL Baby you're missing/Something in the air./I got a name but it don't matter./What's going on?/It's cold in here./You have a life but it's torn and tattered. Maybe you're losing/Pieces of your heart./You have a world but it stopped turning./You lose the day/And gain the dark./Love was a fire but it stopped burning. REFRAIN So spare your heart save your soul/But don't drag your love across the coals./Find your feet, and your fortune can be told./Relax, relax, let go./And hey now let's recover/And hey now let's recover/And hey now let's recover your soul. (REPEAT FIRST SIX LINES) (REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE) THE CATHOLIC i COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN NEW YORK (CNS)  The fol- lowing are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U,S. Catholic Conference (USCC) Office for Film and Broadcasting. Ratings are also given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "Bulworth" (20th Century Fox) Biting satire in which a U.S. senator (Warren Beatty), having taken out a contract on his own life, feels free to publicly express, in rhyming rapper sing-song no his new CD "The Big Picture," sings of the steps to take when you feel you are losing your soul. The song says, "Maybe you're losing pieces of your heart." We can lose our souls when we don't live according to our hearts. That means each of us must be who God created us to be. We cannot be someone else. Neither do we need to be. As an individual you have your own personality, interests and abilities. It is a mistake to change your- self just to be accepted by others. No acceptance or approval is worth as much as that which comes from within. Consequently, know your values and act on them. Express your own goals. Don't give away pieces of your heart just to belong to a certain group or be accepted by peers. The song also says that "you lose the day and gain the dark." These lyrics seem to be a metaphor for behavior that harms you or others. Especially hurtful are words or actions that deceive others. When we lie we create a secret and dark life. less, that politics is aimed at keep- ing the rich in power at the expense of all others. While marred by a murky romantic sub- plot (with Halle Berry) and sim- plistic political ideas, co-writer- director Beatty's black comedy serves up boldly provocative entertainment. Some crude sex- ual references, fleeting violence, substance abuse, constant rough language and occasional pro- fanity. The USCC classification is A-IV  adults, with reserva- tions. The MPAA rating is R restricted. "Godzilla" (TriStar) Undistinguished monster movie in which New York's land- marks and citizens are stomped upon by the giant beast whose hatching eggs prove an even greater threat, especially to a quartet (led by Matthew Brod- erick) in imminent danger.

This means choosing to tell in the smallest of matters. Sometimes leads to unwanted consequences. Yet "lose the soul" quicker than deception. If you doing something wrong, own up to it. your soul to lying. If you do temporarily give up y can recover it. As Catholics, we are fortunate the sacrament of reconciliation. This is a ' that God helps us to rediscover the p created to be. We need to learn from our mistakes, does not want us to get stuck in guilt going to confession we can turn to a new page lives.

Recurring fantasy violence with much mayhem and intermittent profanity. The USCC classification is A-III adults. The MPAA rating is PG- 13 -- parents are strongly cau- tioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. "The Last Days of Disco" (Gramercy) Wryly observed tale, set in early 1980s New York, explores the fluctuating social lives and fledgling careers of a half-dozen recent college grads who fre- quent a trendy disco over the course of a year. Writer-director Whit Stillman's talky comedy serves as a cautionary tale in exploring opinionated charac- ters who discover there are con- sequences to sexual permissive- ness. Momentary violence, a fleeting sexual encounter and nudity, implied affairs, a char- acter's substance abuse and a few instances of USCC classification adults. The MPAA rating: restricted.
