I know we are not supposed to be looking back at last season's Super Bowl. We are supposed to focus on the hard road back that starts this week in Denver. But go ahead on this last holiday of the summer and enjoy one last, great, TV wallow in Super Bowl glory at 9 tonight when the NFL Network presents "America's Game: 2012 Baltimore Ravens. " It's the NFL Films documentary on the champion's Super Bowl season. And like last year's Ravens, it's a winner. Beyond the stunning photography and deft editing we've come to take for granted from NFL Films, what I like best about this documentary on the journey to Super Bowl is that it does chain itself to the convention of strict chronology that such documentaries on a team's season often do. You know, Game 1, Game 2, Game 3 .... Instead of opening in pre-season camp or the kickoff of last year's first regular season contest, "America's Game" opens in the playoff game against Denver.

For Edward Norton making movies isn't just about giving a dynamite performance. It's about collaborating on a piece of entertainment that reflects his view of the world — and pulls that off without preaching to the audience. He leaped into stardom just 14 years ago as a choirboy accused of murder in the tricky thriller "Primal Fear. " But he set the tone of his career with 1999's "Fight Club," in which alienated Gen Xers got in touch with their inner primates via bare-knuckled scraps.

In the late '70s, Toby Orenstein recalls, she gave a local child a small role in a production of "Annie Get Your Gun."Orenstein, active in Howard County dramatics since Columbia's founding in the early '70s, recollects that the child knit up his face in concentration and then asked a question that has haunted her on down the years. She had heard it from no child before or since."What," asked the 8-year-old Edward Norton, "is my objective in this scene?""He was amazing," she remembers, delightedly.

Fight Club," David Fincher's explosively violent and compulsively watchable rumination on the emasculated state of modern manhood, wants men to know that it feels their pain.Combining the chicly distressed look and brutality of Fincher's "Seven" with the head trips of his next film, "The Game," "Fight Club" just might be a tentative foray into maturity on the part of the MTV-trained director. He has made a clever and surprisingly nuanced meditation on the clash of economics, consumer fetishism and ritual tribal aggression -- think of Susan Faludi's "Stiffed" on steroids.

You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry," says Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) near the start of The Incredible Hulk, comically mangling a signature line as he tries to speak Portuguese to some menacing co-workers at a soft-drink bottling plant in Brazil. Of course, comic-book fans love the Hulk when he's angry - and love a franchise when they feel it's hungry for success, which the Hulk movie series now officially is. After sanctioning the turgid 2003 Ang Lee version of the myth (simply called The Hulk)

No one has caught the pride, remorse and pain of an unloved and possibly unlovable husband better than Edward Norton in The Painted Veil. As Walter Fane, a British government bacteriologist based in Hong Kong (circa 1925), Norton has the precise carriage and clear high voice of an educated fellow of his class and time, along with the sharp ethical gaze of a man on a mission.

Watching "Leaves of Grass," a funny, intricate pinwheel of a movie about a classics professor and his marijuana-growing twin, you get caught up in the joy that Edward Norton had playing both these roles. Norton sparks writer-director Tim Blake Nelson's whole inspired ensemble — including Nelson himself, who plays the pot farmer's partner. Making sure to cram a press call in right before he interviewed Bruce Springsteen on Tuesday at the Toronto International Film Festival, Norton said he cottoned to Nelson's script "because I thought it was very original and I laughed a lot when I read it. " It's a thinking man's — and feeling man's — " Pineapple Express.

Changeling What it's about : Angelina Jolie (above) plays a single mother whose missing son is returned to her. Only it's not her son, and when she tries telling that to the Los Angeles police, she gets thrown into a psychiatric ward. Based on a true story from 1928. Rated: R The scoop : Jolie is simply too modern an actress to play a 1920s mother, no matter how much they dowdy her up or layer on the pancake makeup. And director Clint Eastwood is more interested in stoking his audience's sense of outrage than telling a nuanced story.
