This album came when Neil Diamond was firmly entrenched in his adult contemporary niche. A/C can be so pandering it's insulting sometimes, but when it's done with heart and smarts it can be sublime. Diamond apparently gets that and for the most part makes adult contemporary that is actually for adults. It takes a master to croon "Cause I do believe in forever/it's a place that lovers find" without making the sentiment cringe-inducing. And Diamond pulls it off. Despite that, even he can't keep from sounding creepy when he sings, "Ooh, babe, you're a hot little number" on "Everything's Gonna be Fine."

Patrick, a young man whose father runs a remote spa, is injured in a roadside incident and is in a coma. Some years later, during the off season, five people arrive at the clinic - an ambitious politician and his wife, a swimming star who's the son of a wealthy investor, and a tough-talking man and woman who arrive together but sleep in separate rooms. They're greeted by Lydia, the doctor's new assistant, and by two viciously barking dogs. The dogs' keeper warns Davis, the swimmer, to leave. In a locked part of the clinic, Patrick is in bed, wired to three comatose bodies. What sinister purpose does the doctor have? One by one, the guests meet trouble. Does Patrick have feelings?

Genre: Documentary, History

Terence Davies’s ode to his native Liverpool wowed audiences and critics alike after being hailed as the highlight of the 2008 Cannes Film Festival where it received its premiere. This is a spectacular return to form by Davies, long-hailed as one of Britain’s greatest filmmakers. Of Time and the City is an illuminating and heartfelt work, powerfully evoking life in post-war Britain while exploring the nature of love, memory, and the toll that the passing years takes on the cities and communities that we cherish. This is no simple documentary; it is an entrancing piece of autobiographical cinema that reaches far beyond the city in which it is set, weaving a rich tapestry from archive and contemporary footage, music, voice, literary quotation, personal reminiscence and wickedly funny observation.

Henry Prinsep's Empire: Framing a distant colony

Henry Prinsep's Empire: Framing a distant colony (ANU.Lives) by Malcolm Allbrook
English | Oct. 10, 2014 | ISBN: 1925021602 | 364 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Henry Prinsep is known as Western Australia’s first Chief Protector of Aborigines in the colonial government of Sir John Forrest, a period which saw the introduction of oppressive laws that dominated the lives of Aboriginal people for most of the twentieth century. But he was also an artist, horse-trader, member of a prominent East India Company family, and everyday citizen, whose identity was formed during his colonial upbringing in India and England.

Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Pao Records

Harlem is a mythical place, the birthplace of many African-American dreams, a cultural melting-pot, and fuel for the imagination from the ''Cotton Club'' or the ''Apollo Theatre'' all the way up to Sugarhill. Think of this neighborhood in Upper Manhattan and names like Billie Holiday, James Brown, or Jay-Z, films like ''Across 110th Street'' or ''American Gangster'', plus Malcolm X, James Baldwin and Joe Louis will immediately come to mind. Fortunately, Harlem is not just a thing of the past, but more and more a cultural hotbed for things to come.
