Usually when controversial films from the 1960s and 1970s are re-released, they look laughably dated, but "Peeping Tom," Michael Powell's psychological thriller from 1960, can still give you the willies. The movie opens at the Charles Theatre today for a four-day run.The film portrays Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm), who works as a film technician, moonlights as a pornographer and in his spare time films women while he murders them, so he can watch the homemade "snuff" movies later. "Peeping Tom" is a graphic descent into the life of a sadistic pervert that effectively ended Powell's career (this was, after all, the man who made "The Red Shoes")

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Syracuse doesn't hide the best player on its team. He is usually wearing No. 22. It's been Gary Gait, Charlie Lockwood, Casey Powell and Ryan Powell. And now it's Michael Powell. The new No. 22. The one nicknamed "The Future." Powell is only a freshman, but one day he'll be the best player at Syracuse, maybe the best Powell ever to play the game. And that's quite an honor when you consider that both older brothers, Casey and Ryan, were four-time All-Americans at Syracuse.

The Bayhawks stuck with their game plan last night, taking Syracuse standout Michael Powell with the first pick in the Major League Lacrosse draft in Bridgeport, Conn. Powell, an All-America attackman who is considered college lacrosse's most creative player, scored the goal that lifted the Orange past Navy, 14-13, in the NCAA Division I national championship game on Monday at M&T Bank Stadium. Before the tournament, Powell told The Sun, "I really don't think I'm going to play professionally," and cited a desire to turn to music instead.

If you love lacrosse, if you respect its history and if you admire the innovators who have pushed the sport's boundaries, then make it a point this Memorial Day weekend to watch Syracuse attackman Michael Powell against Johns Hopkins in the NCAA semifinals. It just might be your last chance to see one of the game's greatest players. Powell, you see, is burned out. Because of lacrosse, he became a celebrity before he became a teenager. He picked up a stick at age 5 and, by the time he was 12, he was signing autographs.

PRINCETON, Johns Hopkins and Syracuse have combined for 58 final four appearances, but there are still enough underlying themes to make the NCAA tournament interesting this weekend at M&T Bank Stadium. Of course, the lacrosse critics will say it's the usual faces plus Navy. But aren't the Los Angeles Lakers back in the NBA Western Conference finals again? Aren't we all just waiting for the New York Yankees to pull away again in the second half of the baseball season? Haven't the New England Patriots won two of the past three Super Bowls?

ITHACA, N.Y. - Syracuse barely led throughout the entire contest. Its best player was held in check for three quarters. Its amazing postseason streak seemed to be in serious jeopardy. But the Orange acted like itself when it counted in yesterday's NCAA tournament quarterfinals at Cornell's Schoellkopf Field. With five seconds left, Syracuse senior midfielder Sean Lindsay took a perfect feed from senior midfielder Steve Vallone and scored on a point-blank shot to lift the Orange to a come-from-behind, 8-7 victory over Georgetown before 11,480.

ELEVEN YEARS ago, preparing to march down the wedding aisle (for a second time), I bumped into my friend Patrick, who has never in his near half-century on earth enjoyed the marital option. "I'm getting married," I said. "Great," he said. "Has she got a brother for me?" The two of us laughed at the twist on the old line, but there was longing on his part. In Western Maryland, where he grew up and discovered the sexuality granted him by an apparently loving God, nobody ever talked about marriage for gay people.

It's Lacrosse Legends Day in Syracuse, where the visitors include top-ranked Johns Hopkins and more than 100 former players who led the Orangemen to eight NCAA titles over the past two decades. Not all of the luminaries at the Carrier Dome will be in civilian clothing. Syracuse's latest national championship came courtesy of Michael Powell, whose clutch play as a 19-year-old sophomore at the 2002 final four turned the selection of the best player in college lacrosse into a formality. Two Orangemen were twice recognized as the nation's best, but Powell is in position to eclipse both his big brother, Casey, and the great Gary Gait.
