Who (4
By RICHARD GLATZER
Parades is an anti-war movie.
It is the story of a camp of
A.W.O.L. prisoners. It is the
story in particular of Jerry No-
vik, a crazy person. Jerry seems
to have always been crazy, but
he goes really nuts in the
A.W.O.L. camp. $e tries to kill
himself many different ways. He
slits his arm. He pokes out his
eyes. He tries to hang himself.
He makes believe he is trying to
escape, and a guard shoots him.
This shooting upsets the other
A.W.O.L.'s very much. They re-
fuse to do what the mean army
officers tell them. They mess up
the john. They won't crawl like
cockroaches to please Sargeant
Hook. Finally a lot of people get
killed, and that's the end of the
movie.
Parades make such statements
as: children are nice; war is
nasty; all Army personnel are
sadistic, moronic, or sick, or a
combination of the thtee; the
world would be nice if people
were nice; and, if you're, "Al-
ways looking for God," what
you'll get is, "A shitty pair of
underpants."
The Michigan Daily sometimes
has several space limitations. So
what I've decided to do is list
only things that I liked about
Parades.
List of Things I Liked
about Parades
1. Brad Sullivan plays screech-
ing, sadistic Sargeant Hook. Brad
Sullivan has a mouth large

oves a
enough to suck a grapefruit. He
never sucks a grapefruit in the
movie. (I wish he did) But he
does scream a real lot. And he
does open his mouth real wide.
That's a lot of fun to see. Not as
much fun as watching the Ugly
Face Contest winners on the Dick
Cavett Show, but a lot of fun.
2. The action of Parades is
always being interrupted to
show us shots of the klutzy
cameraman and the klutzy pro-
ducer who are supposed to be
making this movie. At first I
thought this was intended to show
us that all of this killing and
blood wasn't really happening.
And to give a touch of Bergman
to the movie. That was pretty
funny. But near the end of the
movie, the klutzy photographer
flinches because of all the gore
he's filming. And after that we
see some policemen confiscate
the movie these two yokels just
made. It was then that I real-
ized that this gimmick was sup-
posed to make us think all the
action was real! That was down-
right hilarious.
3. One thing I enjoyed in a
different way was a scene with
Captain Jinks. Captain Jinks is
a real yoyo. In one scene the
klutzy producer and klutzy di-
rector have the Cap'n listen to
a tape recording of some dia-
logue from their movie. Captain
Jinks listens and he laughs.
"Kids' stuff," he says. I knew
that was supposed to be funny,
because Captain Jinks is sup-

a rude?
posed to be real dumb and the
dialogue on the tape recorder is
supposed to be real good, but I
didn't laugh. Not one bit. I did
enjoy that scene too, though, just
like I said, but in a different
way from the way I enjoyed
Brad Sullivan and the klutzy
filmmakers.
