Description

Over four million people a year in the U.S. mourn the tragic suicide deaths of family members. Suicide devastates family members for many years; family survivors are at a greater risk of suicide themselves and the pain ripples out to entire communities. In this video, family survivors reveal their intimate stories and aching pain to assist other survivors and to help the broader community understand the unique and terrible grief of suicide.

Religious communities experience particular pain because of faith issues. This documentary explores Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and Greek Orthodox responses to suicide. The church can be a "healing station" in helping survivors find their way to recovery.

Hosted by legendary folksinger Judy Collins. The key mental health expert is Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University.

1. Family stories
2. Mental Illness, depression, and suicide

3-0 out of 5 stars Rod Serling, Twice Removed
While this initially comes off as a "Twilight Zone"-style morality play, shifting a thinly-disguised Western setting into a science fiction setting, it should be pointed out that this film is quite far removed from Rod Serling's original. In fact, the Amazon reviewer's statement that Serling's script was "unproduced" is not strictly true.

"A Town Has Turned To Dust" was a television play written in the 1950s, the heyday of live television drama (I can't recall if this was a Playhouse 90 offering). Serling's original script focused on a real-life case involving the lynching of an African-American man, with the complicity of local law enforcement officials. The network feared that this was too inflamatory and controversial to be produced in Serling's original form, so it was rewritten extensively. The version that *was* produced and aired in the 1950s changed the setting to New Mexico in the late 1800s, and changed the victim's character from African-American to Mexican immigrant. Rod Steiger played the local sheriff.

Rod Serling was extremely upset about these alterations, and felt that they had gutted his story, putting too much distance between audience and subject. The "old West" setting, in his opinion, dulled the impact and relevance that his play was intended to have. The play, as written, was not "allegory" at all -- it was a somewhat fictionalized retelling of recent (or current) events, whose impact came from its *contemporary* relevance.

I can't help wondering what Serling would have thought of this recent version, which now has two thick layers of reworking. It is no longer a "1950s lynching placed in a Western setting", it is now a "1950s lynching placed in a Western setting and moved to a Science Fiction setting." The setting -- and the relevance -- of Serling's original have been distanced even further from his original intention. In drawing the play further and further from its intended context, Serling's voice is increasingly muted.

5-0 out of 5 stars The world's problems never change.
A Sci-Fi type of movie is not what I usually like but this is a great movie. Written by the late Rod Serling it shows a time in the future where the problems are the same as we have now and have had in the past. A lot of what this movie is about is prejudice and hate. Ron Perlman and Frankie Avina are the shinning stars in this movie. I highly recommend this movie. ... Read more

Arnold Schwarzenegger as a pregnant man? The Terminator with cramps and morning sickness? That wasall the teasing audiences needed to flock to this 1994 farce, which reunited Arnold with his director and costar fromTwins, Ivan Reitman and Danny De Vito. Reitman had also directed the Austrian muscleman inKindergarten Cop, and they brought the same breezy quality of those earlier films to this enjoyable fluff, inwhich Arnold plays a scientist who uses his own body to test a revolutionary new fertility drug. His colleague De Vitotalks him into the experiment, which succeeds beyond their wildest expectations when Arnold begins a full-termpregnancy. Emma Thompson offers a wealth of comedic support as the biologist who moves into Schwarzenegger's labwhile he's coping with his "maternal" condition, and Pamela Reed (who was also in Kindergarten Cop) adds tothe fun as De Vito's pregnant ex-wife. What's surprising about this mainstream hit is not that it makes the most ofits absurd premise, but that it's also sweetly heartwarming in its treatment of role reversal and the joys and pains ofpregnancy. It's a good-natured vehicle for a different side of Schwarzenegger's star appeal, and the fact that it works atall is a tribute to Reitman and his cleverly talented cast. --Jeff Shannon ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous-sounding, but a joy to watch
Despite its somewhat fake plot, the actors in Junior do such a good job that viewers are willing to go along with the story. It's a laughable idea to begin with and the fun only increases when the beautiful and klutzy Dr. Diana Reddin (Emma Thompson) makes her first appearance aboard her wheeled freezer (which, by the way, contains frozen eggs) and ends up falling on top of Alex (Arnold Schwarzenegger)! Soon, Alex is also falling (head over heals)...in love with Diana! The plot thickens when he tells her his secret and though she is angry at first, she helps him escape from his boss and...well, I won't give any more of the film away! You'll have to see for yourself. If you like romantic comedy and a great cast, SEE THIS MOVIE! You won't regret it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Charming & Funny? Inconceivable!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably my favorite movie star. For my money, there is no greater action hero. I think I enjoy him even more, though, in his lighter, more comedic movies. Take "Junior," for example. It is one of the most charming, delightful and funny films I've seen in a long time. Arnold proves once again that he is as comfortable and self-assured in high concept comedy as he is in high octane action. This film is a real winner.

Schwarzenegger stars as Dr. Alex Hesse, a biochemist doing research on a revolutionary new wonder drug that eliminates miscarriages. Helping him to develop "Expectane" is Dr. Larry Arbogast (Danny DeVito), an obstetrician and fertility doctor. Their project is jeopardized, though, when the FDA refuses to give them approval. The university cuts off their funding, kicks them out and turns their lab over to Dr. Diana Reddin (Emma Thompson).

Fearing the loss of a potential fortune, Arbogast convinces Alex to test the drug on himself. They implant a fertilized egg in Alex's stomach and he starts taking Expectane, along with huge doses of female hormones. Those hormones set-up most of the comedy in the film, along with some of its better moments.

Alex gradually starts to take on the "typical" traits of a pregnant woman. He has mood swings, desires for strange food, soft skin and tender nipples. Watching Arnold play these scenes is part of what makes this film so enjoyable. The hormones don't keep him from falling in love, though. Alex's romance with the shy, awkward Dr. Reddin is both cute and funny.

The casting is probably the best thing about "Junior." It's hard to imagine any other actor pulling this off. As in "Twins" and "Kindergarten Cop," Schwarzenegger plays against his macho image, getting both laughs and smiles by showing us his kinder, gentler side. As a performer, he just keeps getting better and better.

It should come as no surprise that Ivan Reitman, the director of those two earlier Schwarzenegger films, was at the helm of "Junior." His steady, unobtrusive touch is just what is needed for both the laughs and the more poignant moments in the story. Coming on the heels of his previous film "Dave," Reitman is emerging as the top director of light comedy in the business. The screenplay by Kevin Wade and Chris Conrad is quite good, with just the right mix of funny and serious moments.

Emma Thompson sets aside the staid, upper class image that serves her so well in Merchant-Ivory productions, and returns to her comedic roots, turning in a terrific performance that hits all the right notes. DeVito's character is not a new one for him, but he plays it excellently all the same.

"Junior" is a wonderful film for the whole family. Younger kids might be a little bored by it, but older ones-along with their parents-will find plenty to enjoy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Male pregnancy has never been so funny!
TWINS director Ivan Reitman reunited Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger with him for this film. Before I saw this film,I assumed it would be a sequel to TWINS. The untypical male pregnancy is so hilarious that it will relentlessly tickle any viewer's funny bone! This film was probably inspired by the 1989 episode of NBC's The Cosby Show where Bill Cosby dreams that he and his male co-stars Malcolm Jamal Warner,Geoffrey Owens and Joseph C. Phillips are simultaneously pregnant. Supporting DeVito and Schwarzenegger are Emma Thompson. Great film!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I thought this movie was a blast. Arnie brings out the best in a lot of people. When I`m down or having a bad day, I stick this on and just get kicks and laughs out of it. I rate it as an excellent comedy. All of the characters play really well.
I recommend this movie to alot of people, it brings out the best in you after you watch it.

5-0 out of 5 stars When was he watching me?
What a hoot! Arnold really captures the art of BEING pregnant. As a mother and a grandmother I can honestly say, 'he nailed it'. Never before have I seen anybody portray pregnancy with such a laugh a minute humor. It's a movie to watch over and over again. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Hate to put this one away for another year
I've been a Judy Collins fan for decades now and have even attended a live holiday show or two during that period. Collins is an excellent live performer, and it certainly shows on this performance video from 1997. There are moments when her legendary voice falters, true, but it is still a remarkable instrument, as well is being one almost ideally suited for seasonal songs. As has been observed by many of the reviewers below, she is equally at home with the religious carols as the secular ones. She also sings contemporary (included self-penned) carols such as her "Come Rejoice," the title song of a Christmas album released a few years before this concert was taped.

This is one tape I drag out every year--and one I hate to put away after the holiday season. So just maybe this year, I won't. As I write this the winter blahs are rapidly setting in as the Northeast faces yet another cold snap. All the more reason to keep this video handy and a little egg nog on the ready. What better way to prolong the holiday spirit a bit longer?

(One caveat: I have noticed that the sound quality on this tape various dramatically depending on which machine I play this on. If your player is not the best, it may suffer on yours too. Time to upgrade? Well, it looks like CHRISTMAS LIVE AT THE BILTMORE ESTATE may be coming out on DVD soon if it hasn't already. There's a separate listing for it on Amazon, which would appear to be a good sign. If so, it will certainly be a welcome addition to my small but growing DVD music collection--for yours too, I'd wager.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Judy Collins sings traditional holiday carols
We watched this video before a roaring fire late Thanksgiving night. If you like traditional Christmas songs beautifully done, then this video is for you.

The video runs about an hour and a half. The traditional Christmas songs come at you one after the other. As an added bonus, she does a splendid version of "Someday Soon" during the first quarter of the program.

Collins plays guitar and piano on a number of the selections. Her musical back-up is not the full orchestra, but a nice ensemble right for the mood and occasion.

The children's choir adds to the family atmosphere of the evening.

If you want a jazzier sound, a more contemporary holiday selection of songs or a full orchestra-like effect (i.e. the Boston Pops), this is not the video to get.

This truly is a sit by the fire with a hot after dinner drink mood video.

The backdrop of the Biltmore Estate adds to the winter's night intimate evening show effect. Judy Collins is a most gracious performer to her audience at the Biltmore and it comes through in the video version. She tells some brief stories about her family Christmases but not to the point of over-shadowing the music.

I'm not much of a music-video fan of any sort and seldom buy any music concerts or shows on video (I'm obviously way past the MTV age group), yet I bought and enjoyed this holiday performance by Judy Collins.

5-0 out of 5 stars This one becomes a holiday tradition
The previous reviewer almost said it all. I just want to add that this video is very well produced and beautiful to behold. Lots of holiday classics and a bonus rendition of "Someday Soon." Very nice for the Judy fan and any holiday music collector, with even more songs than the accompanying CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Christmas Magic!
I saw this special on A&E one night at around 2 a.m. It had such an effect on me that I ordered the video immediately after it was over. Judy Collins creates a magical setting by staging her concert at the fabulous Biltmore Estate in North Carolina. Her selections include both secular and religious songs, and all are beautifully arranged and performed by Ms. Collins. Her voice sounds better than ever, and lends itself perfectly to Christmas songs. She adds much charm and warmth to the performance with her personal stories and Christmas memories. Her renditions of such traditional standards as What Child is This?, I Saw Three Ships, and The Holly and the Ivy are moving and beautiful. The poem, The Night Before Christmas is put to music by Judy and is a special treat. Adding to the lovely sound of Judy Collins's voice is a full orchestra and The Charlotte Children's Choir. Every aspect of a Christmas concert that one would expect is here. I highly recommend this video to anyone who enjoys Christmas music. For those of you who are Judy Collins fans, it is a must-have. I would also recommend the CD of the same title. I guarantee that this concert will become a tradition in your home at the holidays. Exceptional! ... Read more
