pp ngs"-March 24 thru March 30

All Week
Julie (Campus) Lillian Hellman's
autobiographical story about the bonds
of friendship, turned into a glossy, arty
movie by Fred Zinnemann. There's an
excruciating air of self-importance in
every overly-composed frame. **1/2


Coming to the I.M.A. Auditorium on
Easter Sunday in Flint, Michigan
(recorded Hit Tune: "Play That Funky Music White Boy")
(Hit Tune: "Fun, Fun")
and also appearing
The Great Lakes Music Box
Time: 8 P.M.
Tickets are $5.50 and $6.50
Mail orders accepted
Call the I.M.A. Auditorium Box Office:

American Hot Wax (State) This story
of pioneer rock disc jockey Alan Freed
is hardly credible, but occasionally
works up some energetic enthusiasm
about its subject. **1/a
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
(Michigan) Steven Spielberg's labor of
love makes Star Wars look like a TV
movie. **
The Fury (Briarwood) The latest film
fromifun-loving Brian DePalma
(Carrie, Phantom of the Paradise),
stars Amy Irving and, like Carrie, deals
with psychokinesis.
Saturday Night Fever (Briarwood) A
movie that captures the infectious
energy of contemporary popular music
as few previous films have. The
opening sequence, with John Travolta
sauntering down a seedy Brooklyn
avenue to the sounds of "Stayin''Alive,"
is alone worth the admission. ***%
The Goodbye Girl (Briarwood) Neil
Simon at his best - hollow but enter-
taining. Richard Dreyfuss gives a very
funny performance.**
The Turning Point (Briarwood) A
story straight out of the soaps, along
with some rather poorly filmed ballet
sequences. What less could you ask for?
March 24
Bound For Glory (Old A&D, 7:00 and

9:30) Hal Ashby's intelligent,affec-
tionate rendering of the life of Woodie
Guthrie. Haskell Wexler, who is respon-
sible for the absolutely stunning cine-
matography, will be on hand to speak
between showings. ***1/a
Serpico (Nat Sci Aud, 7:00 and 9:20).
One of Sidney Lumet's (Network) best
films is this entertaininig story of a New
York cop who went- through unbeliev-
able harrassment (and just about lost
his life) all because he refused to take
graft. Starring Al Pacino and Michael
Murphy. ***1/2
Monty Python and the Holy Grail and
Jabberwocky (MLB 3, Holy Grail at
7:00 and 10:30, Jabberwocky at 8:40) If
you're not a Python fan, then Holy
Grail, a ridiculous version of the King
Arthur legend, is almost sure to make
you a convert. Jabberwocky, made by
Python animator Terry Gilliam and
starring Michael Palin, isn't up to Mon-
ty Python's level of humor, but Gilliam
manages to spin an enjoyable black
comedy out of the squalor that was the
Middle Ages. **** and ***
To Kill A Mockingbird (Angell Aud A,
7:00 and 9:15) Very effective version of
Harper Lee's novel of racial prejudice
in a small Alabama town. ***1/2
Emmanuelle (Couzens Cafeteria,
8:00 and 10:00) It seems unlikely that
even true porn addicts could find this
psuedo-erotic schlock at all arousing.
Marathon Man (MLB Classroom 1,
7:30 and 9:45) Dustin Hoffman stars as
a Columbia graduate student who gets
tied up with a diamond smuggling ring
and receives a free dentist appointment
out of the deal. With Laurence Olivier,
directed by John Schlesinger. Is it safe?

March 25
The Late Show (Old A&D, 7:00, 8:30
and 10:00) Written and directed by
Robert Benton (who co-scripted Bonnie
and Clyde), this otherwise routine
private eye genre flick distinguishes it-
self by the offbeat characterizations of
Art Carney as an aging detective and
Lily Tomlin as his kooky client-
North By Northwest (Nat Sci Aud,
7:00 and 9:30) Hitchcock's classic
suspense drama stars Cary Grant and
contains the famous crop-dusting
Stroszek (MLB 3, 7:00 and 9:00) Wer-
ner Herzog's most recent film stars
Bruno S., and concerns three Germans
trying to adopt to the ins and outs 'of
American culture. An Ann Arbor
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
(Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:15) Arguably
the consummate Jack Nicholson role is
that of R.P. McMurphy, a freewheeling
rogue who wreacks havoc in a mental
ward to confront the authority of a
hateful, sadistic nurse. The performan-
ces of Nicholson's fellow inmates are
universally superb. ****
Emmanuelle (Couzens Cafeteria,
8:00 and 10:00) See listing for Friday.
Play It Again, Sam (MLB Classroom
1, 7:00, 8:45 andl10:30) Woody Allen as a
nebbish film critic who wants to be like
Bogart but is at his best when he can
avoid tripping over himself. The idea of
being visited by the ghost of Bogart is
an ingenious one, resulting in a film
that is at once hysterically funny and a
wonderful tribute to cornball roman-
ticism. ****

March 26

Jazz On a Summer's Day (Old A&D,
7:00 and 9:05) Includes performances
by such jazz greats as Louis Armstrong
and Jack Teagarden.
Cleo from 5 to 7 (Angell Aud A, 7:00
and 9:00) Chronicles the brief relation-
ship of Cleo, a pop singer concerned
only with the ephemeral things in life,
and a young soldier.
March 27

The Bread and Puppet Theater
on the Diag-March 24, at noon
(in case of rain in the Pendelton Room, Michigan Union)
Co esponsored by Cnterbury House Guild Houselo Wesley Foundation, Lord of Light Lutheran, Campus
Chapel, and The Office of Ethics and Religion.

An Autumn Afternoon (Old'A&D, 8:00
only, free showing) The director,
Jasujiro Ozu, is generally considered
the most "Japanese" of Japanese
directors, so if seeing Smokey and the
Bandit is your idea of a good time,
you'd better avoid this one.
Dead Pigeon On Bethoven Street
(Angell Aud A, 9:10 only, free showing)
The most recent of Samuel Fuller's
long string of action thrillers.
March 28
Carrie (Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:00)
Sissy Spacek stars as a high school waif
who becomes the subject of a devilishly
fiendish practical joke, then turns the
tables with her telekinetic powers. A
masterpiece of comedic horror. ****
The Jazz Singer (Old A&D, 7:00 and
9:05) If this didn't have some vague
historical interest (it was the first
sound film ever - although only the
song portions have sound), it might well
be considered the most boring movie of
all time. Starring Al Jolson.
Diary of a Country Priest (MLB 3,
7:00 and 9:00) The classic film from
French director Robert Bresson, who,
for most people at least, seems to
redefine the words "slow-moving
March 29
Play It Again, Sam (Old A&D, 7:00
and 9:05) See listing for Saturday.
Barry Lyndon (Angell Aud A, 6:30
and 9:30) This film has received enough
flack about being a mere "art gallery"
of pretty tpictures. Aside from the
beautiful photography, Barry Lyndon is.
a moving, remarkable tale of a
relatively ordinary man's struggle up-
ward in society. ***
