COMMERCIAL CINEMA
Julia (Campus) Fred Zinnemann's
ponderous exercise in artsy film-
making. **
The Big. Sleep (State) A remake of
Howard Hawks' legendary detective
thriller. -
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
(Michigan) Steven Speilberg's inven-
tive and marvelously playful UFO fan-
tasy. ****
Coma (Fifth Forum) The director,
Michael 'Crichton, fails to exploit the
lurid premise behind this hospital
thriller, and Genevieve Bujold's
engaging performance as a doctor-
cum-detective can't raise it above the
level of routine directorial
manipulation. ***
The Iury (Briarwood) Brian De
Palma's flamboyant thriller about a
young woman (Amy Irving) with
telekinetic powers who becomes the
target of a diabolical government con-
spiracy. De Palma's visual flashiness is
up to his. usual standard of glittering
surrealism, but the story, a complex
suspense-mystery, could have used
some tightening. *** .
Saturday Night Fever (Briarwood)
This movie's energetic rock'n'roll spirit
will take you over, and the opening,
with John Travolta sauntering down a
seedy Brooklyn avenue to "Stayin'
Alive," has got to be the sequence of the
year. ***/2
The Turning Point (Briarwood)
Schlocky melodrama about ballet and
its attendant fanatics.. *%
The Goddbye Girl (Briarwood) Neil
Simon at his best - hollow but enter-
taining. Richard Dreyfuss gives a
frisky, very funny performance. ***
Friday
April 7
CINEMA
The Maltese Falcon (Old A&D, 7:00
and 9:30) Humphrey Bogart as Dahiell
Hammett's Sam Spade, in what is
arguably THE classic detective movie.
Directed by John Huston. ****
Harok and Maude and Where's Pop-
pa (MLB 3, Harold and Maude at 7:00
and 10: ,, Where's Poppa at 8:40) Hal
Ashby' ultra-cult film, Harold and
Maude o en strains too hard to be zany
and fun, but nevertheless remains a
warm and humorous depiction of two
mismatched social outcasts. Where's
Poppa is Carl Reiner's (Oh, God!) fun-
niest fil ***% 2
Rebeca (Angell Aud A, 7:00 and
9:15) One of Hitchcock's finest, starring
Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier.
Silver Streak (Nat Sci Aud, 7:30 and
9:30) This comedy-suspense drama
blatantly rips-off from Hitchcock and
various other directors, but a fine cast
(Gene Wilder, Jill Clayburgh, Richard
Pryor) gives it an amiable spirit.
Face to Face (MLB Lecture Room 1,
7:00 and 9:30) Ingmar Bergman out-
Bergmans himself in this ponderous,
pretentious dissection of a
psychiatrist's neurotic breakdown.
Werner Herzog described it beaufifully
as having all the life of a still-born
baby. Even Liv Ullman's powerful per-
formance can't save it. * 1/
Shampoo (Couzens cafeteria, 8:00
and 10:00) Warren Beauty as a
swinging hairdresser in Hal Ashby's
minor classic about a 48-hour romp
through election day in the Beatles 60's.
The Hound of the Basketville (Hut-
chins Hall, Roorh 100, 7:00 and 9:00)

out of the Holmes-movies of yesteryear.

Romeo and Juliet (MLB 3, 7:00 and
9:15) Franco Zeffirelli's ultra-
romanticized rendition of
Shakespeare's play stars Olivia Hussey
and Leonard Whiting. ***%
Belle de Jour (Angell Aud A, 7:00 and
9:00) Bunuel's superb story of a woman
who becomes a prostitute by day after
sustaining a tedious marriage. One of
Bunuel's very best. ****
Chinatown (Nat Sci Aud, 7:00 and
9:15) Roman Polanski's superb film
begins as a simple, hard-boiled detec-
tive flick, before slowly transforming
into a menancing nightmare of con-
spiratorial evel. ****
Targets (MLB Room 1, 7:00, 8:45 and
10:30) Peter Bogdonavich's directorial
debut.
Shampoo (Couzens cafeteria, 8:00

CINEMA
The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
(Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:15) Billy
Wilder's witty evocation of the Holmes

about corruption in the French
aristocracy.

CINEMA
Eika Katappa (Angell Aud A, 9:10

Balls of Fire and Only Angels Have

CINEMA
The Godfather, Pt. I (Old A&D, 7:00

and 10:00) Pauline Kael called it "the
greatest picture ever made," and she
just might be right. Coppola's
sprawling, powerful epic is one of the
most intelligent American films of the
70's, and features superlative perfor-
mances by Brando and Pacino. ****

and 9:05) Although not the best of the
Mr. Hulot films, this early Jacques Tati
work is a wonderful introduction to the
world of the man many have called the
French Chaplin. ***%
