The idea of "honor among thieves" may have become somewhat of a cliche in the movies since the days Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson doubled-crossed their own, but there's little familiar or commonplace in the merits of two new video releases this week that take a rigorous look at "the heist" and the men and women who pull them. In the running for an Academy Award next week, Ben Kingsley gives a riveting portrayal of malevolence in the British thriller "Sexy Beast" (VHS: priced for rental; DVD: $29.99)

This is a Philadelphia story of courts and connections. It stars Margaret Jean Sosnowski, former nun, Frank Rizzo appointee, Democrat for Reagan. It seems her professional background includes being fired from a private medical office for not having a psychologist's license. And being forced out of a state welfare job after allegations of improper insurance billing. And claiming a psychology degree she doesn't have. No matter. A couple of years ago Family Court created a new job with an important title: assistant chief of the medical branch.

Let us now praise Martin E. P. Seligman, who has just completed a banner year crusading against what he perceives as the twin evils of victimology and the self-esteem movement. This is not the story of some maverick taking on the psychological establishment. Quite the contrary. Seligman, a professor of psychology at Penn, is president of the American Psychological Association, and is widely known for research he has done on what he calls "learned helplessness," along with his work validating the effectiveness of psychological therapy.

Having more choices can actually be a bad thing, says the research that changed psychologist Barry Schwartz's life, earning his TED Talk millions of views and turning him into someone "people all over the world . . . associate with a single important idea. " And coincidentally, Schwartz, who is preparing to retire from Swarthmore College, has made an illustrious career by sticking to just a few good choices. He's been a professor at Swarthmore for 45 years - the only job he ever applied for, he said.

Harry J. Woehr was an Army Air Corps operations officer at what might have seemed a safe harbor from all the killing during World War II. Though Japanese troops occupied pieces of the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, Mr. Woehr was at a safer base there. He experienced loss of life there, just not American. As part of a wartime program that transferred American airplanes to the Soviet Union, "he was involved in helping to get the Russian pilots to take off" and head home over a narrow strip of the Bering Sea, daughter Leslie Tuttle said in a phone interview.

Rutgers has unintentionally become the site of an experiment for the 21st century: How does a university operate without Internet, email, or course-management systems? Students and faculty were forced to find out last week when a cyber attack disabled Rutgers' networks for most of a work day. A psychology graduate student, just days from defending his master's thesis, resorted to reading tiny PDFs on his phone. Undergrads taking economics depended on documents downloaded to personal devices - at the beginning-of-the-semester urging of their professor.

"INSIDE OUT" is the first psychological thriller that's fun for the whole family. Really psychological. And really fun. The central characters in Pixar's crazy-inventive animated adventure aren't talking toys, or cars or monsters. They're emotions: Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness, all jockeying for control in the "headquarters" of a pre-teen girl. That is, from the control room in her head. Connected to HQ is a vast mindscape: a long-term memory area, "personality islands" built on core experiences, Imagination Land, and sectors dedicated to abstract thinking and the subconscious (it's spooky there)

Sitting in a Florida jail after being charged with drunken driving, Andrew J. Assini had no one to call and no one to blame. He was 24. "I realized," he recalls, "that maybe I had some part in the never-ending calamity that was my life. I realized, 'Something has to change here.' It was the end of the road. " Since then, nine clean and sober years - and a continuing spiritual quest - have helped Assini replace calamities with accomplishments. The Deptford resident, 33, has earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at Rowan University, where he's an instructor in the psychology department.

On Groundhog Day, one is tempted to wonder how a supersized rodent came to be a symbol of hope. Perhaps those tourists flocking to an obscure patch of Pennsylvania called Gobbler's Knob only think they've come to see a seer named Punxsutawney Phil. They may instead be acting upon a universal human yearning for community, for a respite from the isolation imposed by, say, an Arctic vortex. These Punxsutawney pilgrims may simply be expressing our communal wish for better weather.
