Events and Entertainment
for week of Jan. 27- Feb. 2

All Week
COMMERCIAL CINEMA
Short Eyes (Campus) This at-
tempt to get down to brutal "reality"
is a good expose of inner-city prison
ills, but fails at any signigicant
insight into the prisoners' actions.
t**/2
Which Way is Up (State) A Michael
Schultz-Richard Pryor comedy. This
is an alleged restaging of Lina
Wertmuller's perfectly awful Seduc-
tion of Mimi.
Pete's Dragon (Michigan) Disney
fare--take your kid sister. With Helen
Reddy.
Semi-Tough (Fifth Forum) A mild-
ly amusing satire, with psychological
self-help theories as its target. Stars
Burt Reynolds, Jill Clayburgh and
Kris Kristofferson. **2
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
(Fox Village) An absolutely stunning
vision of what a visit from extrater-
restrials would be like. Stars Richard
Dreyfuss, Francois Truffaut and
special effects. ****
Saturday Night Fever (Briarwood)
Energetic performances by John
Travolta and his grungy co-horts, as
well as dynamite disco sequences,
overcome a hackneyed script and
make this one of the year's most
entertaining. ***
Star Wars (Briarwood) George
Lucas' Flash Gordonesque "space
fantasy"--see it again. ***/2
Kentucky Fried Movie (Briar-
wood) A:Groove Tube-type series of
satirical sketches on television and
the movies. Sometimes offensive,
sometimes dumb, sometimes quite
funny.**
The Goodbye Girl (Briarwood)
Neil Simon's most thoroughly enjoy-
able work, refreshingly free of the
stodginess and obsessive one-liners
that characterize so many of his
others. Richard Dreyfuss steals the
show. ****
friday
January 27
CINEMA
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
andNight of the Living Dead (Room
100, Hutchins Hall, Invasion at 7:00
and 10:30, Night at 8:45) Two of the
all-time best science-fiction-horror
films ever produced. Both are among
the few movies that can be justifiably
labeled "chilling." ****
The Sting (Nat Sci Ad, 7:00 and
9:30) George Roy Hill's entertaining,
though somewhat mechanical, story
of two conmen (Redford and New-
man) who go for the big one.Vapid,
but well-assembled. ***%
Ten From Your Show of Shows
(Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:00) Ten
skits from the marvelously funny
fifties comedy show. With Sid Ceas-
ar, Imogene Coca and Carl Reiner.
Seven Beauties (MLB 3, 7:00 and
9:15) By far Wertmuller's best film,
Seven Beauties is so atmospheric and
dramatically charged, that it seems
to transcend any thematic preaching
by the zest of its narrative along. So
operatic, you'll leave' the theater
singing. ****
200 Motels and Zachariah (MLB 4,
200 Motels at 7:00 and 10:30, Zacha-
riah at 9:00) Skip Zachariah
altogether. 200 Motels is packed with
the kind of surrealistic insanity that
perhaps only a true Zappa-fanatic
can enjoy, but the whole thing is
worth it just for the atonal (and
absolutely outrageously obscene)
aria some soprano sings with the Los
Angeles Philharmonic. They don't

come any crazier. ***%

Casablanca (Old A&D, 7:00 and
9:05) Out-classics them all--Bogart at
his most mythic. ***
EVENTS
Folk Music--Joseph Hickerson
will discuss the history of folk music
in the United States at 4 p.m. in Room
306 at Burton Tower.
PTP--The Professional Theatre
Program presents the musical com-
edy, "My Fair Lady" at 8 p.m. in the
Power Center for the Performing
Arts.
Java Enseibble--The Gamelan En-
semble presents a program of Java-
nese music and dance at 8 p.m. in Hill
Auditorium.
Ark--Joseph Hickerson sings folk
songs at the Ark, at 8:30 p.m.
saturday
January 28
CINEMA
M*A*S*H (Nat Sci Aud, 7:00 and
9:15) Donald Sutherland and Elliot
Gould give it to the "regular army
clowns" in this hilarious look at the
Korean (a.k.a., Viet Nam) War.
Directed by Robert Altman. ****
Hester Street (Angell Aud A, 7:00
and 9:00) Carol Kane plays a Russian
immigrant who arrives with her fam-
ily in New York during the turn-of-
the-century. One of those cheerful,
but not-very-amusing pictures that
seem to have all the zing of a piece of
Zwieback. Directed by Joan Micklin
Silver. **
3 Women (MLB 3, 7:00 and 9:15)
Though lambasted for being unduly
pretentious, Robert Altman's
"dream film" is a compelling, oddly
beautiful expression of visionary
matriarchy, with many sensitive and
highly disturbing moments. ***1/2
King of Hearts (MLB 4, 7:00 and
9:00) Ignore the hackneyed political
implications, and you have a reason-
ably funny comedy. Why it's Ann
Arbor's "favorite" film, though, is a
mystery known only by those at the
film co-ops. ***
The Seven Percent Solution (Old
A&D, 7:00 and 9:05) A lively story, as
well as a remarkable depiction of the
Holmes idiom. Well worth seeing.
Herbert Ross directed. *** s g
EVENTS
Ark--Folk Singer Joseph Hicker-
son will perform at the Ark, 8:30 p.m.

PTP--"My Fair Lady" will be

event will be held in the Union
Ballroom.
sunday
January 29
CINEMA
Heavy Traffic (Angell Aud A, 7:00,
8:30 and 10:00) Not as good as Fritz
the Cat, but some amusing moments.
**% /
Beware of a Holy Whore (Old A&D,
7:00 and 9:00) A meditation on
filmmaking, by German wunderkind
Rainer Werner Fassbinder. ***%/
We're Not the Jet Set and A Sense
of Loss (MLB 4, 7:00 and 9:00,
respectively) Two documentaries:
the first, by actor Robert Duvall
deals with the Wild West myth, and
the second, by Marcel Ophuls, on
Northern Ireland. Sounds interest-
ing.

Lady" will be presented in the

The Decameron (MLB 3, 7:00
and 9:00) An adaptation of the

Boccaccio classic, by Pier Paolo
Pasolini.
Blow-Up (Old A&D, 7:00 and 9:05)
Even if one rejects the reality-nonre-
ality theme as convoluted crappols,
this is a marvelously entertaining
Antonioni film, and a stunningly
beautiful photographic display. *
tiful photographic display. ****
Double Indemnity and The Blue
Dahlia (Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:00,
respectively) Two films in the Ray-
mond Chandler series--both are
great. ****
EVENTS

ment, discussing current socio-
economic conditions. Modern Lan-
guages Building, Auditorium, 4, 4
