Awakenings
PN1997.A935 1991
Streaming Rights = NO
Based on a true story as related by neurologist Oliver Sacks, Awakenings stars Robin Williams as the Sacks counterpart, here named Dr. Malcolm Sayer. Something of a klutz and naif, Dr. Sayer takes a job at a Bronx psychiatric hospital in 1969. Here he's put in charge of several seemingly catatonic patients who, under Sayer's painstaking guidance, begin responding to certain stimulati. Apprised of the efficacy of a new drug called L-DOPA in treating degenerative-disease victims, Sayer is given permission to test the drug on one of his patients: Leonard Lowe (Robert De Niro), who has not communicated with anyone since lapsing into catatonia as a child. Gradually, Lowe comes out of his shell, encouraging Sayers to administer L-DOPA to the other patients under his care.

Meningitis : the sudden illness /
RC376.M4 1996

Conventional wisdom says that there is no cure for the flu; a doctor can only treat the symptoms. But when typical flu symptoms-- fever, headache, and a runny nose-- are accompanied by a stiff neck, the condition may be far more serious than the flu and life-threatening. Meningitis may be the culprit, and immediate medical attention is vital. This program features three leading physicians in the study of the illness, Dr. Elaine Teomanen of Rockefeller Univ. in New York, Dr. Michael Scheld of the Univ. of Virginia, and Dr. George McCracken Jr. of the Univ. of Texas Southwest Medical Center. The three examine and explain the causes and consequences of meningitis, and discuss treatment methods, both conventional and cutting-edge.

Though fashioned as popular entertainment with laughs, light moments, and mostly humorous segments, Maher and the filmmakers are serious in castigating the body of literature whose influence on human history has been overwhelmingly negative. A globe-hopping Maher interviews various representatives of the Western religious faiths of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Mormonism. If, as Maher states, 16% of the U.S. population identifies as secular humanists who don't believe in God, then that's a large cross section of the country whose voices are muffled by the status quo. It is to them, not believers, Maher speaks -- preaching the gospel of doubt.
