Two weeks ago we talked with Fairfield's talented Neil Brooks Cunningham Neil Brooks Cunningham pic about his acting role in The Bourne Legacy. We're happy to report it opens Friday at the Co-Ed in Fairfield. Neil plays Dr. Dan Hillcott who, according to Rachel Weisz's Dr. Marta Shearing, provided a "viral map", enabling the entire success of "The Program", the American government's covert operation that's created the next level of super-agents, as played by Jeremy Renner

This week hear about the new releases, including the propulsive Premium Rush, starring one of today's hottest (and busiest) young actors- Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We'll start our Fall Movie preview and tell you about a sweet, emotional gem from Japan, titled Quill: The Life Of a Guide Dog. If you like dogs this is a must-see. This review from Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, posted on "Spirituality & Practice": "Dogs are loyal, curious, and courageous. But even more impressive is that dogs have abilities that we seem to have lost. Three of these abilities are direction-finding, telepathy, and precognition. These gifts help explain why dogs have been used as guides for blind people and others with disabilities. In the ruins in Pompeii, the Italian town destroyed by a volcano, pictures were found of dogs leading humans."

Friday evening, 9/7 the Fairfield Library's free movie will be the filmosophical 1998 film What Dreams May Come, a "visually stunning metaphysical tale of life after death" starring Robin Williams, Annabella Sciorra & Cuba Gooding, Jr. It's an excellent chance to see this visual treat on a big screen again. We'll talk about that and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give out filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, again Sunday at 9:00 AM. "Brakes are death." - Premium Rush .
