The Goethe Institute continues its remarkable survey, "Anti-Fascist Films of the GDR," tonight at 7 p.m. with Frank Beyer's Oscar-nominated "Jakob the Liar" (1976). The only one of the six films in the series that has been seen in Los Angeles before, it is a stark yet oddly whimsical film. A middle-aged man (Vlastimil Brodsky, a wonderfully expressive actor), in the Jewish ghetto in a town somewhere in Germany in 1943, overhears a radio report of a Russian advance.

Three days ago, the madness returned to Jakob Gollon. The sixth-year senior at Mercer slipped in a DVD and, for the first time, watched his team stun third-seeded Duke last month to open the NCAA tournament. Gollon saw himself on the television screen leading the Macon, Ga., school's first NCAA appearance since 1985. Finally, those 40 bracket-busting minutes of basketball seemed real. “I don't want to watch it too much and take away the awesomeness of it,” Gollon said in a telephone interview.

Jakob Dylan called in some impressive collaborators to help with his new "Women and Country" album that's coming out next month, at the top of the list being producer extraordinaire T Bone Burnett and singer-songwriter Neko Case, the latter of whom serves as his vocal foil on several of the songs. But it's entirely possible the whole project never would have existed if not for Glen Campbell. The Campbell connection came up earlier this year when Dylan went to visit Burnett, a longtime Dylan family friend, at work in the studio with another artist.

Through pain and surgeries that seemed without end, Jakob Gollon imagined finishing his college basketball career in the NCAA tournament. “But reality isn't like dreams,” the sixth-year senior at Mercer University said in a telephone interview. That changed Sunday when the Macon, Ga., school beat Florida Gulf Coast University in the Atlantic Sun Conference title game to advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1985. Gollon's wait lasted four surgeries and 152 games.

For three decades, promising young singer-songwriters have tried to shake the mantle of "the next Dylan" before the weight of the honor and the expectations it brings with it stopped them in their tracks. Jakob Dylan, the youngest son of Bob Dylan, might do well to cloak himself in his father's legend, however, since his modest (albeit generally agreeable) talent is unlikely to take him far on its own.

Jakob Gimpel, an aristocratic pianist long considered one of Los Angeles' most cherished cultural assets, died Sunday at his home in Westwood. The veteran of hundreds of recitals around the world and a venerated academician who had retired a few years ago as Distinguished Professor in Residence at Cal State Northridge was 82. His son, Peter, said he had suffered from arthritis and circulatory problems.

With both Wallflowers albums, especially the breakthrough 4.1-million-selling 1996 set, "Bringing Down the Horse," fans have combed through the lyrics looking for juicy lines relating to leader Jakob Dylan's life. Dylan expects it to happen again with the band's third album, "Breach," which has just been completed and is due in September. This time, though, there's a difference. People looking for clues will actually find some.

Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg sustained a broken right hand when he was slashed in Friday night's game against Ottawa, his former team. He is expected to miss four to six weeks, the Ducks announced Saturday. Silfverberg, 23, has four goals and three assists in 11 games. He had spent the bulk of the season alongside Teemu Selanne and Mathieu Perreault on the Ducks' second line. Silfverberg was slashed by Ottawa's Jared Cowen in the third period of the Ducks' 2-1 win over the Senators.

Penner has one goal and no assists and has twice been a healthy scratch - including Tuesday - in the last 11 games. Penner, 31, practiced Thursday with a second line of Mathieu Perreault and Teemu Selanne . "I don't know how long it'll last, but I thought [the first line]

Jakob Silfverberg was raised on the outdoor ice rinks of Sweden, molded by a distinguished defenseman father who won several national titles and influenced by an uncle who was once a national scoring leader. "He's got a great shot and release, so he's going to score goals when given the opportunity," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said of Silfverberg. "More importantly, he's very responsible - both ends of the rink. In Sweden, there's a different style of play, where you have to learn the responsibilities of the game more than just a skill.

Trading fan-favorite Bobby Ryan for a young Swedish player from the Ottawa Senators didn't appear to be a move that would strengthen the Ducks. But Jakob Silfverberg, 22, has four goals through the team's first four games, and his two-goal performance Thursday in the Ducks' 6-0 home-opener rout of the New York Rangers at Honda Center is changing the perception of a deal that looked like a pure salary dump. Silfverberg is around the net and shoots hard, as he showed in the first period by taking a pass crossed to him by Ducks legend Teemu Selanne and blasting a close-range shot past the New York Rangers' Vezina Trophy finalist Henrik Lundqvist.

In a debate over which Ducks player has the greatest upside this season, the answer is not a given. Center Nick Bonino could be the guy after a fluke in-season injury shortened a strong start last year. Maybe it's Long Beach's Emerson Etem , who scored three playoff goals at age 21, or new acquisition, wing Jakob Silfverberg , even though both start the season with nagging injuries. Right wing Kyle Palmieri might be the safest choice, given his breakaway speed that contributed to a 10-goal, 11-assist performance in 42 games last season.

It's unfair to expect 22-year-old Jakob Silfverberg to immediately replace four-time 30-goal scorer Bobby Ryan on the Ducks' scoresheet or in the hearts of their fans. But Silfverberg, who had 10 goals and 19 points in 48 games with Ottawa last season, has enough talent to suggest he will carve out his own niche with the Ducks, who acquired him with winger Stefan Noesen and a 2014 first-round draft pick for Ryan in July. Switched from his natural right side to the left Thursday, Silfverberg meshed with right wing Teemu Selanne and center Nick Bonino during the first day of practice at Anaheim Ice. To Coach Bruce Boudreau , Silfverberg lived up to his billing.

Two impact players from the Southern California market left town Friday in what was an especially frantic opening day of NHL free agency. Free agency giveth and taketh? It was slightly more complex than that. For unrestricted free-agent defenseman Rob Scuderi, it was a matter of geography and family issues, causing him to leave the Kings for his former team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Scuderi signed a four-year deal worth $13.5 million, making him the first significant member of the Kings' Stanley Cup-winning team to move on. Free-agent dominoes helped trigger a trade between the Ducks and Ottawa, sending dynamic forward Bobby Ryan to the Senators in exchange for winger Jakob Silfverberg, prospect Stefan Noesen and a first-round pick in 2014.
