6p     Movies That Matter: Falling Down (1993). This film is a cautionary tale of what can become of us when the strain of life is just too much. When I first saw this, in 1993, at first I didn’t recognize Michael Douglas. A very different role for the actor. William “D-Fens” Foster (Michael Douglas) is just trying to make his way home for his daughter’s birthday. The impenetrable L.A. traffic and the heat of the day are unbearable. Stuck in traffic, his car breaks down, so he sets off on foot. His journey becomes ever more difficult as people - the people he can’t stand - get in his way. A Korean store owner won’t give him change to make a phone call. Gang members threaten him. William slowly - no, very quickly - begins to devolve. Will he make it home? And at what cost? With Robert Duvall and Barbara Hershey. Join us for an evening of pizza, picture and a chance for thoughtful discussion. Pizza 6p, film 6:45p. Movies shown on 58" plasma TV. For pizza, let us know your preference, meat or veggie. (510) 451-3009, daniel/a/t/joyfulharmony.org. Hosted in Oakland by Daniel Neumayer and Gwendolyn Rothman, Harmony Center for the Joyful Spirit.

3p     Big Ideas Reading Group: Entanglement – The Unlikely Story of How Scientists, Mathematicians, and Philosophers Proved Einstein’s Spookiest Theory by Amir D. Aczel. Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one is instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them? Albert Einstein’s work suggested it was possible, but it was too bizarre, and too contrary to how we then understood space and time, for him to prove. No one could. Until now. Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to complete Einstein’s work. For September 12 at Kepler’s: Quantum Computing Since Democritus by Scott Aaronson.

6p     Movies That Matter: The Lives of Others (2006). I showed this film eight years ago, when it first came out. It’s time for an encore. We have so many stories of men who slide down the slippery slope to become evil. Here is a tale of a man who gradually climbs back up the slope. At once a political thriller and human drama, it begins in East Berlin in 1984, five years before Glasnost and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and follows Ulrich Mühe, whose job is to spy on a too liberal actor. Mühe makes departures from the prescribed procedures, small ones at first, and finds himself involved in the lives of others - the ones he is spying on. Oscar for best foreign language film of 2006. In German with English subtitles. Rated R for some sexuality and nudity. Join us for an evening of pizza, picture, and a chance for thoughtful discussion. Pizza 6p, film 6:45p. Movies shown on 58" plasma TV. For pizza, let us know your preference, meat or veggie. (510) 451-3009, daniel/a/t/joyfulharmony.org.
