I want to see: «Youth without Youth»

Francis Ford Coppola seeks answers in 'Youth'
«Youth Without Youth is Coppola's rendering of a novella by the Romanian emigre philosopher Mircea Eliade. Tim Roth plays an aged academic who becomes young again when he's struck by lightning. It's a movie of ideas, a mystery that doesn't ask whodunnit, but instead what is it? What is time? Memory? Reality? Knowledge?»
And who is Eliade, you may ask . . . go check the index to At the Origin of the Christian Claim. An interesting fellow - I've been wanting to read something by him for some time.

It is my wish tonight that we could all see this film together and discuss it over coffee afterwards. Thanks Fred.

I don't think it's in Kansas City yet :(

Nor in SLC, maybe we need a more metropolitan place. Let's congregate in San Fran, Sharon's place of origin. We can invite the archbishop who is a film-lover and a friend.

from Wikipedia, so it must be true:

A limited release is often used to gauge the appeal of an independent film – especially of documentaries and art films. A common practice by major film studios is to give highly anticipated and critically- acclaimed films a limited release in December in New York and Los Angeles in order to qualify them for an Academy Award nomination, as set out by the rules outlined by the Academy. These films would often receive a wider release later in January or February.

I won't be at Diaconia, but maybe there will be a chance for folks to see it together...

We do plan to be at vacations and exercises in the Minnesota region.

Yea, sorry you won't be at Diaconia. It will be my first one. We're having our second School of Community this Wednesday. We will be joined by three seminarians from northern Flordia who are here skiing. So, please keep our fledgling little CL communio in your prayers.
