2001: A Spae
Oddyssey
UAC-Mediatrics
Nat. Sci. Aud.
Fri., 7, 9:30
2001: A Space Odyssey is di-
rector Stanley, Kubrjck's mlag-
humi opus, one of the few films
that can be seen three and even
four times.
It includes a short course in
anthropology, a history of tools,
HAL the tool that bites back, a
good light show, mystery, sus-
pense, and The Meaning of Man's
Existence, all in only 141 min-
utes.
The movie, a medium of en-
tertainment made with machines,
is brought to an impressive level
of technical excellence in this
well thought out story about ma-
chines.
Keir Dullea and Gary Lock-
wood are appropriately machine-
like as the two astronauts. Doug-
las Rain's voice of HAL has re-
placed that of Boris Karloff as
the essence of True Evil for a
whole generation.

Viva Zapata
Cinema Guild
Arch. Aud.
Sat., Sun., 7, 9:05
This forceful film has a lot to
offer: beginning with M~arlon
Brando as Zapata, a Mexican
peon-turned-revolutionary presi-
dent.
Brando sports his most exten-
sive make-up job ever, with tap-
ed eyelids,, plastic rings for nos-
trils, and even brown contact
lenses to go with his dyed hair.
His acting, as usual, is impecca-
ble.
Anthony Quinn stars in his
Academy Award - winning per-
formance as Zapata's brother.
J o h n Steinbeck wrote the
screenplay, and Elia Kazan,
whose credits include On the
Waterfront, directed it.
Viva Zapata's big fight be-
tween Quinn and Brando uses no
stand-ins. And watch for a pret-
ty actress named Movita in the
background. She managed to
steal Brando's heart in real life
and create one of the biggest Hol-
lywood romances of the fifties.
-Michael Wilson

My Night at Maud's
Cinema 11
Ad. A
Sun., 7, 9
MyNight at Maud's challenges
teassumption that gripping mo-
vies must be built around vio-
lence, car demolition derbies or
raw sex.
There is very little action:
Eric Rohmer's shots are slow-
paced; people just talk without
preaching or pretension.
The plot hinges on a young
man's temptation to stray from
the Catholic Church's command-
ment against fornication. Vnex-
pectedly, for a modern film, the
teachings of the Church pre-
vail.
Still, the movie is not a dia-
tribe against the sins of the
flesh. Rather, it seems a cry-
stal clear picture of what life
is like for most of the people of
the time The result is a quiet
happiness, like a fire on a cold
day.
Maud's stars Jean-Louis Trin-
tiagnant, one of the few actors
alive who can play an intellect-
ual without resorting to a hoary
stereotype.

Investigation of a
Citizen Above
suspiciont
Cinema IH
Ad. A
Sat., 7, 9
This 1970 Italian film may just
rank as that country's greatest
contribution to the cinema world
since Sophia Loren.
Directed by Elio Petri, Ivs-
tigation won an Academy Award
in 1971 As the best foreign lan-
guage film. This version is sub-
titled.
The "citizen above suspicion"
is a rather psychotic police chief
who sets out to prove that a man
wAith the right position in life can
literally get away with murder.
F-le decides to kill his mistress,
making certain that hie leaves be-
hind several obvious clues.
But much to his surprise, hi
assistants do not even hint that
their boss might be guilty. In-
stead, they quite willingly accept
his flimsy cover-up at face value.
Gian Maria Volante's finely de-
tailed performance as the police
chief provides tasty icing for
this already delicious cake of a
film.

Pygmalion
Cinema 11
Aud. A
Fri., 7, 9
As the original 1938 classic
made from George Bernard
Shaw's play, Pygmalion leaves
out the music that the remake
Mfy Fair Lady popularized 26
years later.
Unfortunately, few know of
this excellent, serious original
which presents the distinguished
Leslie Howard as Prof. Henry
H-igg ins.

The movie's technique is ob-
noxiously interesting, and for
some reason, one cannot take
one's eyes off Jagger whenever
he's on the screen. Those big,
bulbous lips and the identity
switch Mick pulls with Fox are
alone worth the admission price.
If, however, anybody thinks he
or she understand the ending,
please write this reviewer at The
Daily and explain.
I've seen the filmh three times
and still can't figure out who
is in the limousine which pulls
awsay at the wild story's con-
clusion. Is it Jagger or Fox?

Siddhartha takes all the forced
profundity and pseudo-Eastern
mysticism of the novel by Her-
man Hesse and then adds some
old cinematic cliches to it:
hushed dialogue, slowv pace, and
soft-focus photography.
The movie concerns the young
I n d i a n mystic Siddhartha's
search for inner wisdom, which
he finds by abandoning wealth,
fine clothing, and sex in order to
live beside a river.
Uh huh. Strictly for those who
take their philosophy no strong-
