Manhattan was crawling with retailers and real estate brokers licking their wounds from the economic collapse when Steve Niggeman, a member of that chastened club, took a seat at a restaurant and floated a proposal that, at its core, screamed, "Spend millions. " The annual International Council of Shopping Centers conference, typically an orgy of deal making between landlords and retail tenants, was in town. But on Dec. 8, 2008, the mood was somber. Chrysler and GM were running out of cash, Circuit City had gone bankrupt, unemployment was about to surge.

A mushroom cloud looms over London, millions of citizens incinerated, the radioactive ash descending on the rubble. In October 1962, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, 13-year-old Sally Potter saw this doomsday scenario - every night in her dreams. "It's very interesting, those people who can directly remember the crisis," says the filmmaker, whose beautiful Ginger & Rosa - about two London teenagers, fast friends caught in a whirl of personal and political tumult - is set during that fateful fall, when the whole world looked as if it were going to go ka-boom.

ERIK GUSTAFSSON had his head buried in a program during the first intermission on Sunday night, sitting in the press box at the Wells Fargo Center among the popcorn, soda, former Flyers and other healthy scratches. For any hockey player, the press box is the last place you want to be seen. It's where careers go to die. For Gustafsson, though, seeing the game seven levels above the ice surface provided a unique perspective. His only other trips to the press box were as an injured player, with little need to focus on the details of the game.
