The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana ---On The Record-- BLUE Blue/O so lonesome for you/Why did you be blue over me? Blue/O so lonesome for you/Why did you be blue over me?/Tears fill my eyes/Until I can't see. Three o'clock in the morning/Here am I/Sit- ting here so lonely/So lonesome I could cry. Blue/O so lonesome for you/Why did you be blue over me? Now that it's over/I realize/Those three words you whispered/Were nothing but lies. Blue/O so lonesome for you/Why did you be blue over me/Why did you be blue over me? Written by Bill Mack Sung by LeAnn Rimes Copyright (c) 1996 by Curb Records Inc. Getting over being blue Imagine this situation. You're 13, have an incredible voice and your first release rises high on By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST I the charts. What is your life like? 1 suspect many readers of this column might wish for such an opportunity. LeAnn Rimes no longer needs to daydream about this possi- bility. Her hit song has her living it. She is perhaps the youngest star in today's pop music. Her approach to music is classic country. Yet, she has crossed over quite successfully to the pop charts. "Blue" is the title of her hit cassingle and her debut CD. The song speaks about the sadness of losing a romance. The woman in the song is "blue" and "so lonesome for you." Her man has left her, and now she realizes that his words of love "were nothing but lies." She describes being awake in the middle of the night, not exactly a convenient time to talk to oth- ers about what one is feeling. Maybe she has made the mistake of hiding her pain from her friends. They might not realize how much she is hurting. The song reminds me how we need to reach out for others' support. This is especially true among teens. Young people can be there for each other as they face disappointments that leave them "blue." However, feelings can be difficult to express. Sometimes teens need to look at their behaviors to realize that another's life For example, does a friend seem more distant,] withdrawn? Is someone acting differently, lowing through on school or work activities? you noticed any use of alcohol or other drugs? the individual seem irritable While these behaviors are not sure signs den hurt, they are worth checking out. Tell friend that you've noticed a certain change. your concern. Ask if something painful has occurred. If nothing is shared, remind your ongoing willingness to listen if he need to share in the future. Teens being there for each other can powerful difference, especially during "blue" tions. Listening and giving support without ment help another break through the ings the song mentions. Many times we can't fix what hurts er's life. Yet, if we listen with care and offer words of encouragement we can provide person with a real sense of connection. Don't look away when your friends are (Your comments are always welcome. address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, IN 47635.)

Ratings are also given for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "Caught  (Sony Classics) Slow-paced drama of the close friendship that develops between a Jersey City fishmonger (Edward James Olrnos) and the young drifter (Arie Verveen) he takes into his home, but things turn nasty when the fishmonger's wife (Maria Conchita Alonso) takes a fancy to the boardei, and they begin an affair. Directed by Robert M. Young, the picture develops its working-class environment and characters in credible fashion, then gets swept away in the torrid depiction of an increasingly pas- sionate affair whose tragic ending falls flat. Simulated sex scenes with nudity and occasional pro- fanity and rough language. The USCC classification is 0 -- moral- ly offensive. The MPAArating is R restricted.

IIII i I II I "Curdled" (Miramax) Adolescent ghoulish comedy in which a woman (Angela Jones) with a morbid fascination about murder takes a job with a com- pany which cleans up murder sites after the police are done. While revisiting a job one night, she encounters a psycho killer (William Baldwin) who has returned to the scene of his crime. Directed by Reb Braddock, this tongue-in-cheek horror fantasy uses a lot of fake gore in stretch- ing out its thin sick-joke premise but the result is more tedious than tasteless. Several off-screen decapitations, some cruel but stylized violence, bloody murder sites and occasional profanity and rough language. The USCC clas- sification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Last Man Standing" (New Line) Arriving in a Texas border town overrun by rival Prohibi- tion-era bootleggers, a trigger- happy tough guy (Bruce Willis) hires himself out to both sides, then systematically kills them all. Willis smirks his way through one boring shootout after another in an empty story of violence from writer-director Walter Hill. Hero- ic treatment of a brutal murder- er, excessive violence, a sexual encounter and much profanity. The USCC classification is O w morally offensive. The MPAA rat- ing is R -- restricted. 'rhe Leopard Son" (Dis- covery Channel Pictures) Nature documentary follows tw O years in the growth of a male leopard from cub to adulthood on Africa's Serengeti Plains. Nar- rated by John Gielgud and direct- ed by Hugo van Lawick, the dra- matically photographed chronicle of life in the wild provides an uncompromising portrait of the survival of the fittest, with some fairly graphic scenes of animal kills. The USCC classification is A-I -- general patronage. The MPAA rating is G -- general audiences. "Extreme Measured' (Colum- bia) Routine thriller about a doctor (Hugh Grant) who stumbles onto a diabolical conspiracy led by a famed neurosurgeon (C-ene Hack- man) in which homeless men are Support Catholic schools by using the Tradition Card.

Directed by Michael Apted, the story builds initial suspense, then succumbs to the cliches of a mad- scientist plot with a far-fetched, overwrought finale. Sporadic vio- lence, much profanity and rough language. The USCC classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Surviving Picasso" (Warn. er Bros.) Well-crafted dramatization of the personal life of aging artist Pablo Picasso (Anthony Hopkins) as recalled by ex-mistress Fran- coise Gilot (Natascha McElhone) who became his companion in 1943, bore two of his children and endured his erratic behavior until leaving him 10 years later over his affair with another woman. Directed by James Ivory, the movie is worth seeing for its evocative visualization of the artist's times and associates, though the story of a failed rela- tionship lacks emotional sub- stance and the character of Picas- so never adds up to more than that of a gifted egoist.
