  • Stone talks about "Araby" and the writings of James Joyce. For "Araby" preserves a central episode in Joyce's life, an episode he will endlessly recapitulate. The boy in "Araby," like the youthful Joyce himself, must begin to free himself from the nets and trammels of society. That beginning involves painful farewells and disturbing dislocations. The boy must dream "no more of enchanted days." He must forego the shimmering mirage of childhood, begin to see things as they really are. But to see things as they really are is only a prelude.

  • There's a knock at the door. A skinny teenager in baggy jeans and an oversized Jack Nicholson T-shirt breezes in and plops onto my couch. It's time for another informal film school session. Tonight: Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I cue up the laser disc, divvy the popcorn. As the movie unfolds, our conversation bounces from plot development to composer John Williams' iconic score to Spielberg's sweeping storytelling. To my surprise, this 14-year-old is not familiar with Spielberg, although he's already studied other modern classics in his father's tape collection: "Five Easy Pieces," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "The Godfather," the last being a Christmas Eve ritual at his Virginia Beach home.

  • OPENING THIS WEEK (2.5 CHILES) AROUND A SMALL MOUNTAIN Jacques Rivette is one of the storied pioneers of the French New Wave, and at 82, he's one of its survivors. He's made great movies like L'Amour Fou (1968), his legendary marathon Out 1 (1971), Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974), and La Belle Noiseuse (1991). His latest, a short, meandering quasi- romance featuring nice performances from Sergio Castellito and Jane Birkin, is lovely to look at but dramatically lethargic. It seems to take its cue from the lackluster traveling circus in which it is set, a one-ring, two-bit setup where clowns, aerialists, and a few other desultory acts play to handfuls of bored spectators, and a dark secret is revealed. It's not Rivette at his peak, but anything by this master is deserving of a visit. N...
