JEAN-CHARLES TACCHELLA'S
B~LUE COUNTRY"
With BRIGITTE FOSSEY and JACQUES
SERRES. French, with subtitles.
A plethora of misunderstanding. Tocchella's characters in the pastoral French
countryside do not understand their feelings, wants, ideals, sexuality or self-
hood, and, likewise, they don't understand each other. Nonetheless, their
antics are :amusing, not melodramatic. Here eccentric behavior is less the
cause of social grief, instead being more a sign of humanity-something to be
appreciated. Amidst all this (or as part of it), an urban woman moves to the
country to escape the banality and confusion of the city, only to meet up with
rural people yearning for the "sophistication" of city life. As in "ousin
Cousine," Tacchella's previous film, there is an overall friendliness and good.
feeling not usually found in contemporary antiseptic U.S. cinema.

ERASERHEAD
(David Lynch, 1977) 7& 10:20-MLB 3
This bizarre film has been playing to packed midnight audiences in New
York since its release. A coherent plot description is impossible, but it
suffices to say that director Lynch has created a true cinematic rarity: an'
original work that seemingly has no antecedents in the horror genre. "The
special effects are simply extraordinary. I am not easily' given to overstate-
ment. See this thing."-David Bartholomew, Cinefantastique. ANN ARBOR
PREMIERE.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
(George Romero, 1968) 8:40 only-MLB 3
A group of people trapped in a farm house are surrounded by radio-active
ghouls with a taste for human flesh. More frigtening then THE BIRDS, more
grotesque than THE FREAKS, more menacing than INVASION OF THE BODY
SNATCHERS, this movie is as horrifying a nightmare vision as one could hope
to see on film. "Kill the brain and you kill the ghoul."
Tomorrow: Truffaut's THE MAN WHO LOVED WOMEN

FRIDAY
February 9
Slaughterhouse Five (Old A&D, 7 and
9:05) Based on Kurt Vonnegut's novel,
which contains a very cinematic idea: a
man who becomes "unstuck in time"
and lives parts of his sweetly bizarre
life all out of sequence.
The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (Aud.
A, 7 only) A very unusual film for 1944,
in that (1) it's a comedy about an unwed
mother, and (2) there's not a mention of
Hitler. Delightful.
The Lady Eve (Aud. A, 9 only) Henry
Fonda plays a wimpy millionaire her-
petologist, and Barbara Stanwyck is
the slinky vamp who charms him.
The Gold Rush (Nat. Sci., 7, 8:30 and
10) Many consider this to be Charlie
Chaplin's finest film, and it has its
great moments. "The Little Tramp"
becomes- the first man to conquer Klon-
dike gold country in baggy pants and
bowler.
Eraserhead (MLB 3, 7 and 10:20) No
one seems to know what this -film is
about, exactly, but reports say that it's
bizarre, original, extraordinary. A
must-see for all adyerturous cineastes,
if only to find out why that guy on the
Ann Arbor Film Co-op poster does his
hair that way.
Night of the Living Dead (MLB 3, 8:40
only) A true horror classic, about dead
peple coming back to eat the living.
George Romero made this low-budget
effort into a perfect nightmare of
horror and suspense.
Blue Country (MLB 4, 7 and 9) A
romantic comedy by the maker of
Cousin, Cousine, about the problems
and joys of single life. In French, with
subtitles.

Mister Roberts (Hutchins Hall, Rm.
100, 7 and 9:15) Another comedy about
fun in the Navy during WW II, starring
Henry Fonda, James Cagney and Jack
Lemmon, and directed by Mervin
LeRoy.

SATURDAY
February 10
The Eiger Sanction (Old A&D, 7 &
9:15) Clint Eastwood directed and
starred in this film about a professional
assassin and part-time art instructor
who goes out to avenge the death of a
friend.
Silent Movie (Nat. Sci., 7, 8:30 and 10)
A cumbersome, embarrassingly un-
funny Mel Brooks comedy. A definite
must-not-see.
Papillon (Aud. A, 7 and 9:15) Steve
McQueen plays Paillon, the brave, cool
French felon who escapes Devil's

Island not once, but again and again.
Based on a true story. With Dustin Hof-
fman giving his usual fascinating per-
formance as Papi's loyal friend.
The Man Who Loved Women (MLB 3,
7 and 9) Although not up to the
passionate intensity of Truffaut's Story
of Adele H, this collection of charming
anecdotes about a perennial "leg-man"
is still more enjoyable than most of the
fluff the director has made during the
last 10 years.
Second Chance -- Foxx plays Top 40
rock through Sunday.
SUNDAY.
February 11
The Wizard of Oz (Old A&D, 7 and
9:05) Yes, it's that delightful, whim-
sical, mondo bizzaro 1939 perennial,

big screen. With Judy Garland, Ray
Bolger, Bert Lahr... you know 'em
all. "And your little dog, too! "
Second Chance - Foxx rocks with
dancing Top 40 music.
The Ark - Martin Simmons plays
jazz piano.
