If you love hearing Martin Scorsese talk movies, don't miss "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff. " Craig McCall's tip-top documentary centers on the cinematographer who turned Technicolor into an incomparably vivid and fluid palette with movies like "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman" and "The Barefoot Contessa. " (It plays at the AFI Silver at 2:45 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. Monday.)

It's all over. They passed out the million bucks and everyone's gone home, but you still can't get "Survivor" out of your mind. Apparently, you are not the only one with a Robinson Crusoe fantasy. Since the strangely captivating TV show began last spring, travel operators in several of the Asia-Pacific's more isolated locales have reported an increase in bookings.
