Jean-Pierre Melville, who died in 1973, was one of France's towering movie mavericks and most striking individualists - for starters, he changed his name from Grumbach after reading Moby Dick. Forty minutes longer than the previous American-release version, the complete cut of Melville's 1970 Le Cercle Rouge, receiving its regional premiere today at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, reveals this hard-guy epic to be a great, eccentric gangster film. A self-styled classicist and loner, who wore dark suits with stetsons or fedoras like his beloved action-movie heroes, Melville inspired the New Wave with his ingenious, low-budget techniques.

The first thing you notice when you walk into Michael Grogan's martial arts class in Catonsville is that everyone is wearing shoes.But that is not the only unusual aspect to Mr. Grogan's class. As a Christian, he shies away from the teachings of Eastern philosophy, and other martial arts customs."In a lot of the traditional Asian martial arts there are teachings of using one's inner powers and inner strengths that have some mystic connotations," said Mr. Grogan, who runs Sword of Heaven Martial Arts.

At Ivy League and other elite universities across the nation, the face of Christianity has been rapidly changing from Caucasian to Asian. As long-established student Christian clubs -- some of them go back to the time of World War I -- have shifted ethnically, they have also grown. In places perhaps known more as vanguards for deconstructionism and gay studies -- such as Harvard, Stanford and the University of Chicago -- Asian-dominated Christian fellowships in many cases attract hundreds of students.

ALTOONA, Pa. - Those who love Mitch and Cookie Grace are bleakly consistent in the metaphor they use to describe the couple's circumstance this past year. Invariably, they turn to the imagery of death. "I see them dying right before my eyes," Sharon Mock, Cookie's younger sister, says in the back room of the Graces' cheery scrapbook store. "It's like an ongoing funeral," is how Sam Ebersole, a longtime foreman in Mitch's contracting company, puts it outside the Graces' Tudor-style home in adjacent Hollidaysburg.

That Cirque du Soleil's show Dralion was inspired in part by the quest for harmony between nature and man makes the troupe's scheduled stop at Harbor Point, a former toxic waste site, seem all the more appropriate. "Not since the tall ships came here has there been such a spectacle on our waterfront," said Mayor Martin O'Malley yesterday in announcing the April 11-27 performances by the famed circus of acrobats, contortionists and clowns. O'Malley called the tour stop a perfect opportunity to begin showing off Harbor Point - a peninsula that was home to the former AlliedSignal chromium plant and the site of a $100 million cleanup operation.

Of the two artists in the current exhibit at the Gomez Gallery, Christine Neill makes the louder statement. Neill's eight still lifes seem electrified. At first glance, these watercolor paintings suggest a surreal human form.A closer look shows the form to be the blossom and stem of a flower. The flower bows, bends sideways, or backward, or forward. It catches a bright light, then emits the sheer energy of a brighter light.Neill, professor of painting and drawing at the Maryland Institute College of Art, does not merely paint flowers in these larger-than-life paintings.

Ellicott City resident Stephen Leslie began a new phase of his spiritual life this summer. For the past 15 years, he had practiced meditation quietly. Now he offers to teach others to meditate.Twelve have accepted his invitation. He teaches hatha yoga positions and leads his students through guided relaxation and into quiet meditation.Often, he says, his students initially experience strong emotions as they begin to turn inward. He thinks of himself as a "spiritual friend," not a counselor, he says, although he sometimes encourages others to seek counseling.
