(BMI) The Tony Rich Project first achieved national attention with the hit "Nobody Knows." Now the cassingle "Like a Woman" is giving them a second ride up the charts. The song describes a couple's venture into dan- ger. Neither understands "who we are or why we met." Yet they find their romance "strangely good in some sort of freakish way." The guy says that "the things we'll do will make you feel like a woman." She appears to take this emotional bait and falls in love with a man that she doesn't even know. Admittedly, falling in love involves a rush of feelings. However, sharing your heart with someone isn't supposed to mean unplugging your brain. Emotion is one guide for our lives; reason is its trustworthy companion. Turn off your brain, and you're headed for lots of hurt. A more sane approach is to check out a roman- tic attraction before following ik Maybe your feel- ings are telling you to float off into some romantic (Your comments are always welcome. address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, IN 47635.) THE CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION W 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. Reviews are also given for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "Bound" (Gramercy) Nasty thriller in which the wily mistress (Jennifer Tilly) of a gangster (Joe Pantoliano) teams with her lesbian lover (Gina Gershon) to cheat the mob out of $2 million by framing the gangster. Co-written and direct- ed by Larry and Andy Wachows- ki, the movie's soulless charac- ters and nonstop brutality on screen overwhelm the stylishly. Shot visuals. Fairly explicit bed- room scene with nudity, exces- sive bloody violence and constant rough language and profanity. The USCC classification is O morally offensive. The MPAA rat- ing is R -- restricted. "Infinity" (First Look) Drama covers 1934-45 in the life of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman (Matthew Broderick), who mar- ried his high school sweetheart (Patricia Arquette) despite the fact she had highly contagious tuberculosis and saw her through the terminal disease ,while working for the govern- ment on the secl'et Los Alamos project to split the atom. As slug- gishly directed by Broderick, a sweetly melancholy love story emerges, leaving Feynman's feelings about his involvement in the creation of the atomic bomb unexplored. Discreetly implied premarital affair and an instance of profanity. The USCC classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The MPAA rat- ing is PG -- parental guidance suggested. "Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills" (Creative Thinking) Unsettling documentary chron- icles from arraignment to sen- tencing the Arkansas murder tri- als of three local boys aged 16 to 18, accused of killing three 8- year-old boys in 1993 as part of a satanic ritual. Producer-directors Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinof- sky record many raw emotions from the accused and the victims' families in a provocative film that raises questions about the correctness of the verdicts. Shots of the nude corpses, graphic mutilation descriptions and sex- ual references. The USCC classi- fication is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the MPAA.

'Genesis: A Living Conversation,' Oct. 16, PBS By HENRY HERX Catholic News Service NEW YORK (CNS) -- Jour- nalist Bill Moyers and his guests discuss the meaning and contem- porary relevance of stories from the Old Testament in "Genesis: A Living Conversation," a 10-part series premiering Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7-8 p.m. CDT on PBS (WNIN TV, Evansville). The series begins with ?The First Murder, the Genesis story of Cain and Abel as read by Mandy Patinkin from the New Revised Standard Version. The lively discussion which follows explores the story's pro- found moral themes as well as: some provocative ambiguities in; its narrative. '  ' ' The concept for the series is to bring together people from different disciplines ranging ,from biblical scholars to lawyers and college presidents to take a fresh look at ancient stories which are still a living part of our Western heritage. All of the participants take the Bible seriously, some from a religious perspective, others from a cultural context. The conversation ranges from literary dnalysis to personal anecdote in probing the moral and spiritual impl!cations of the biblical text. The panelists are intelligent, articulate individualswho pur- sue different aspects of the same story and even when their inter- pretations clash, the result stim- ulates further reflection of the viewer. That is certainly the case in the first round-table discussion, which consists of six novelists and a rabbi. Catholic author Mary Gordon makes the case that the slaying of the innocent Abel is connect- ed to the death camps of the Holocaust. Others grapple with God's treating Cain with justice and mercy, protecting with a sign to protect others from killing him. Some see Cain as the most interesting character and tryto analyze why God had no regard for his offering. All agree that it is the ambi- i " I I I i ii i i j COMPLETE INSURANCE SERVICF_, Au! Home!

The result is a talk show refreshing in the depth of ideas and provocative in the pursuit of moral principles. When it's over, more viewers than not are likely to dig out the family Bible and start re-read- ing Genesis to get ready for the following week's program, "In God's Image."
