Michael Kovak è un giovane seminarista americano, scettico nei confronti dell'esorcismo. Durante i suoi studi per diventare prete, viene inviato in Vaticano per frequentare una scuola di esorcismo. Lui accetta anche se con riluttanza e mentre è a Roma incontra un prete dai metodi poco ortodossi, padre Lucas, che gli presenterà il lato più oscuro della sua fede. Il ragazzo in balia del credere o non credere in Dio e dubitando del suo credo religioso cattolico, trova la sua occasione per dimostrare la propria fede quando vengono incaricati tutti e due di seguire un presunto caso di possessione. Incontreranno così una ragazza che cercheranno di aiutare e che farà vivere loro un'esperienza fuori dal normale. La vita della ragazza, e del figlio nel suo grembo, verrà presa dal demonio e, dopo di ciò, un susseguirsi di avvenimenti diabolici porteranno il giovane Michael ad esorcizzare addirittura il suo mentore, padre Lucas. (LaFeltrinelli)

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

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
