NEW MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — A documentary film examining what it takes for a life well-lived has focused on several Berkshires residents to illustrate its ideas.

"A Small Good Thing" won best documentary at this year's Boston International Film Festival. Among director Pamela Tanner Boll's previous credits is as a producer on the Oscar-winning documentary "Born Into Brothels." "A Small Good Thing" has a screening at the

Her path to making "A Small Good Thing" began with questions and concerns about her own life. Despite doing exactly what she should have done, worked hard and found success, there was this nagging feeling that there

"Ghostbusters," the third film in the franchise originated by Aykroyd, Ramis and Reitman in 1984, reboots the saga of paranormal booga booga with four funny ladies starring in what is essentially a séance gone wild. Asserting that anything the male Ghostbusters could do, they can do wackier, it is a movie of moments and ideas, most of them witty, some of them hilarious.

Unfortunately, the thinnest of refurbished plots is unable to meld the cerebral with the onslaught of special effects. It gets a bit out of hand.

Still, when isolated from the obligatory Sturm und Drang, the sketch comedy crafted by the endearingly enthusiastic Ghostbusters wins our affection. Each

Tanglewood enters its third week, and the highlights abound. Performances of music by great Classical, Romantic and 20th Century composers, i.e. Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Dvorák and Vaughn Williams, take center stage, featuring outstanding examples of chamber and orchestral music by these iconic masters.

Why go? Add to the above the Festival of Contemporary music that contributes some modern-day spice to the mix and you have a week of future musical memories that define what Tanglewood is all about - the best of older and newly composed music.

And, if the offerings at Tanglewood aren’t enough to pique your musical interest, there are also outstanding

While "The Secret Life of Pets" isn't quite "Lady and the Tramp" (1955), I've no problem mentioning the two kiddy flicks in the same sentence. Both are proof positive that you can learn a lot from the animals, especially the cartoon variety if they're as lovable as Max, a Jack Russell terrier voiced here by Louis C.K.

A contemporary variation of the iconic Tramp, who resisted domestication until romance curtailed his wanderlust, this Manhattanite is dedicated to hearth, condo and his master, Katie (Ellie Kemper).

When asked one morning by Gidget, the white Pomeranian next door who secretly loves him, if he had plans today, Max informs: "Yes, big, big

Tanglewood enters its second week of classical programming, with inspiring and thought-provoking concerts in the Shed and in Ozawa Hall. As always, diversity is the watchword: from an all-Mozart evening to Ives and Gershwin; from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to the cutting-edge orchestra “The Knights” performing arrangements of Cat Stevens, The Troggs and Bob Dylan. And, as always, there’s heartfelt chamber music: this week by Brahms and Alban Berg.

In New Lebanon, N.Y., at Tannery Pond, there’s a not-to-be-missed evening of solo piano music (Schubert, Franck, Liszt and Hough), to be performed by MacArthur (‘genius-award’) Fellow-virtuoso pianist/composer

David Yates, director of several "Harry Potter" films, does a respectable job of both preserving and translating for contemporary tastes "The Legend of Tarzan." Although a tad methodical, its high-minded social conscience, solid acting performances and scintillating integration of special effects make up for its occasionally slow pace.

Alexander Skarsgard, handsome, built to rumble and adept at varying grimaces, is a fine King of the Jungle ... an extraordinary presence who can illustriously switch from human to ape mode whenever the survival instinct deems necessary.

This latest permutation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' literary hero can glide through the trees with

Tanglewood opens its classical season this week this Friday, July 8, but there’s still diverse programming, with stimulating concerts in the Shed and in Ozawa Hall.

As always, there’s music to suit every taste: from a brass extravaganza to early music from Africa and the New World; from the Boston Pops featuring writer/director/song stylist Seth MacFarlane to the superlative Emerson String Quartet performing classic Haydn and Berg quartets and much more.

Why go? Simply because the amazing range of great music can, and should, be enjoyed by all music lovers. Here are this week’s listings.
