Er mennesket mere styret af biologi end af opvækst, miljø og kultur? Videnskabsjournalist Lone Frank samtaler denne gang med professor i socialpsykologi Henrik Høgh-Olesen om emnet ondskab. Høgh-Olesen mener, at sadister som finder nydelse i at have magt over og fysisk pine andre kan kaldes onde, men kun i forhold til en vis fællesmenneskelig standard. De fleste har måske ikke anlæg for på eget initiativ at ville gøre andre ondt, men psykologiske forsøg viser, hvordan helt almindelige mennesker i et videnskabeligt forsøg kan presses til at gøre andre mennesker fysisk ondt (tror de). Der ligger nemlig i vores stenalderhjerner en trang til at underkaste os autoriteter for at støtte den gruppe, vi føler os som en del af i kampen mod alle de andre, der er udenfor gruppen. Høgh-Olesen kommer ind på bl.a. Milgram-eksperimentet, Stanford Prison-eksperimentet og Robber's Cave-eksperimentet. Høgh-Olesen tror ikke, at den norske massemorder Anders Breivik er sindssyg, men er ekstremt stærkt styret af tanken om "dem" (udgruppe) mod "os" (indgruppe) kombineret med en følelse af paranoia og megalomani (storhedsvanvid). Derfor kunne Breivik nynnende og smilende nedskyde unge socialdemokrater på Utøya, for i hans verden er det nødvendigt for at frelse Norge fra indvandring og socialisme. Normalt vil miljø, opvækst, kultur osv. svække eller forstærke visse af de tendenser, som findes i stenalderhjernen, men fx Breivik viser, hvor svært det er at afgøre hvor meget, for han synes at have haft en relativt tryg opvækst og mangler alligevel empati og flertydighedstolerance

Trama: Svezia, anni Cinquanta. Erik Ponti, sedici anni, studente all'ultimo anno di liceo con un carattere eccessivamente violento, viene espulso da tutte le scuole pubbliche del paese dopo l'ennesimo pestaggio ai danni di un compagno. In realtà il ragazzo, che è orfano di padre, viene sottoposto quotidianamente a punizioni corporali dal severo patrigno che la madre non riesce a contrastare. Venduta una parte dell'arredamento del proprio appartamento, la madre iscrive Erik presso una prestigiosa scuola privata nella quale vige una rigida disciplina interna gestita dagli stessi studenti organizzati in gerarchie in base alla loro provenienza nobiliare o alla ricchezza. A capo dei "nonni" c'è l'altezzoso Silverhielm che prende di mira Erik a causa delle continue insubordinazioni da parte del ragazzo all'assurdo sistema di punizioni e alla sua amicizia con Pierre, un ragazzo dall'indole pacifica, seguace della nonviolenza che riesce a convincere il nuovo arrivato della bontà delle proprie convinzioni. Erik decide, così, di chiudere con il suo passato violento, anche perché ha scoperto l'amore con Marja, una giovane inserviente dell'istituto. Ma non è facile: le provocazioni di Silverhielm e della sua banda sono sempre più gravi (perquisizioni a sorpresa delle stanze, gavettoni a base di escrementi, punizioni corporali in pubblico) e a nulla serve appellarsi al corpo docente, indifferente o colluso con i prepotenti ad eccezione del professore di educazione fisica e di quello di biologia. Quando Pierre abbandona l'istituto in seguito all'ennesimo pestaggio e Marja viene licenziata a causa della loro relazione (il regolamento dell'istituto non ammette rapporti tra gli studenti e il personale), Erik torna sui propri passi ed è costretto a dare una lezione a due dei complici di Silverhielm. Il preside non lo punisce per il suo atto di violenza ma, a causa di una lettera speditagli da Marja, una prova incontestabile della loro relazione, viene espulso. Solo grazie all'aiuto di un avvocato amico di suo padre (che minaccia di denunciare il preside per aver sequestrato la lettera di Marja appellandosi alla legge sulla privacy) Erik riuscirà a restare all'istituto e a conseguire il diploma. Tornato a casa metterà con le spalle al muro l'odioso patrigno prima di iscriversi all'università di Stoccolma dove studierà per diventare avvocato

Wenn Charles (Clive Owen), ein gut situierter Werbefachmann aus Chicago mit einer an Diabetes erkrankten Tochter und einer angespannten Ehesituation zufällig auf Lucinda (Jennifer Aniston) trifft, einer reizenden und etwas einfältigen Finanzberaterin, die ebenfalls in einer Ehekrise steckt, stimmt die Chemie zwischen den Beiden sofort - sowohl zwischen den Charakteren, als auch zwischen den Schauspielern. Als es letztlich zu einer Verabredung in einem Hotel kommt, wird diese von einem Räuber (der französische Schauspieler Vincent Cassel, richtig schön gemein und ekelhaft) unterbrochen, der gekommen ist, um Charles bis auf den letzten Dollar auszunehmen. Selbstverständlich würde ein Anruf bei der Polizei alle Probleme lösen, aber wie er es auch schon bei "Kollateralschaden" machte, erhöht Drehbuchautor Stuart Beattie die Spannung mit solch manipulativen Fähigkeiten, dass man willens ist, die Löcher im Drehbuch zu ignorieren und sich mitreissen zu lassen. Mit lebhaften, unterstützenden Darbietungen der Rapper Xzibit und RZA ist Entgleist ein kommerziell cleveres Amerika-Debut für den schwedischen Regisseur Mikael Hafström, dessen Thriller Evil aus dem Jahre 2003 eine Oskar©-Nominierung in der Kategorie "Bester Ausländischer Film" erhielt
