With a timbre suggestive of Billie Holiday and an intimate style of phrasing that needs only the subtlest twist of a syllable to hook a listener, Madeleine Peyroux has cleared a distinctive path in today's jazz world. That path does not include a lot of self-promotion. The Georgia-born singer, songwriter and guitarist has a reputation for being on the reclusive side.

Contrary to what appears on the Internet, Lian Lunson, director of the concert/documentary film, Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man, did not write the music to The Passion of the Christ. She did, with old friend Mel Gibson, co-produce a CD of songs on the themes of The Passion of the Christ, including Cohen's own "By the Rivers Dark," and Bob Dylan's "Not Dark Yet." Gibson contributed straight-shooting liner notes, in which he calls Cohen "a great spiritual warrior." Lunson can't resist complicated men such as Cohen and Gibson or the subject of her previous music documentary, Willie Nelson: Down Home.

Capsules by Michael Sragow and Chris Kaltenbach. Full reviews at baltimoresun.com/movies. A Scanner Darkly, -- Richard Linklater's nightmare drug movie, loses its fizz after a strong series of pops. Instead of a moviemaking vision, it merely has a look: an unsettling, changeable new form of animated live action. And, instead of a lucid, original take on wigged-out junkies and the government that spies on them, it slavishly follows Philip K. Dick's novel of the same name. (M.S.) R 100 minutes B The Ant Bully -- brings home the perils of being a meanie -- it's about a kid who, after flooding an anthill, is reduced to ant-size and taught the error of his ways.

On April Fool's Day, the secretive fraternal organization known as the Masons signed a contract with Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos to sell him the Masonic Temple, an architectural treasure on North Charles Street, for $2.2 million.About 80 days later, with the deal not yet closed, the Masons welcomed members and antiques dealers into the resplendent old lodge for something akin to a glorified attic sale.
