EVENTS and ENTERTAINMENT
FOR THE WEEK OF NOV. 11-17
all wee k
Annie Iall and Love and Death
(Campus), Woedy Allen's last two
films, are also his best. More good
jokes here than Mel Brooks has made
in his life. Superb. ****
Fantasia (State) Splendid, un-
equaled animation - cartoons made
lyrical.) Beethoven's Sixth and the
Rites of Spring are cut to ribbons, but
this film is nevertheless a landmark.
New York, New York (Michigan)
Martin Scorcese's tribute-satire of
the '40s in the eyes of Hollywood has
good original music, many splendid
performances 'and moments, yet
there's something inexplicably lack-
luster about the whole thing. ***
Heroes (Fifth Forum) Henry Wink-
ler stars in this stirring remake of
Bergman's The Seventh Seal. With
Sally Field as Death.'***
A Piece of the Action Fox Village)
A reasonably entertaining action
comedy, directed by and starring
Sidney Poitier. *
Star-Wars (Briarwood) Neat. ***
Looking For Mr. Goodbar (Briar-
wood) An excellent performance by
Diane Keaton fails to provide this
film with any coherent meaning.
Some interesting scenes, but on the
whole, not what it could have been.
Bobby Deerfield (Briarwood) An
ostensibly "adult" romance, but
there's a good deal less here than
meets the eye. Al Pacino and Marthe
Keller. Lethargic. **
Oh, God! (Briarwood) We're tired
of insulting this movie. Write your
own pan. *%
Knife in the Water (Old A&D, 7:00
and 9:05) Roman Polanski's first
directorial effort is at once a vivid
suspense drama and a lucid, probing
parable of sexual rivalry. ****
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
(Angell Aud A, 7:00 and 9:00) This
Frank Capra film is one pure enjoy-
ment. Jimmy Stewart won an Oscar
for irs portrayal of a young senator
who4 res to take on the biggies. n*
G spell (Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:30 and
9:,30 Jesus Christ Superstar is one
thing, but this gushy, revolting piece
of pseudo-religious garbage makes
us long for the Living Bible. Don't go
right after eating.*
.Modern Times (First Presbyterian
Church, 8:00, free) Chaplin's well-
known commentary on society.
Dance - "Bites - A Dance Work"
presented by the Dance Department
of the School of Music. 8:00, School of
Distinguished Faculty Series -
"China in the Last Quarter of the 20th
Centry" a lecture by Dr. Albert Feur-
werker of the Center for Chinese
htudies. Ecumenical Campus Center.
Linda Ronstadt - nothing need be
said about this superstar of the rock
world. 8:00, Crisler Arena.
Women in Love (MLB 3, 7:00 and
9:15) rhis Ken Russell film has some
semblance of normalcy, but brilliant
photography and a superb perform-
ance by Glenda Jackson can't com-
pensate for the annoyingly superfi-
cial. treatment of the D.H. Lawrence
novel. An interesting, yet ultimately
shallow production. **
WR: Mysteries of the Organism
(Old A&D, 7:00 and 9:05) Serbo-
Croation goulash of sex and politics
from the director of Sweet Movie.
Sometimes funny, more often simply
A Streetcar Named Desire (Angell
Aud. A, 7:00 and 9:15) Never were
the southern nights steamier, the
southern belles more faded, or
Brando more brilliantly neanderthal
than in Elia Kazan's brilliant adapta-
tion of Tennessee Williams' play.
They don't come better. ****
The Longest Yard (Nat. Sci. Aud.,
7:15 and 9:30) A surprisingly enter-
taining story of football behind bars.
Starring Mr. Wonderful, Burt Rey-
Enter the Dragon (Couzen's Cafe-
teria, 8:00 and 10:90) One of Bruce
Calculatorliall - find your favor-
ite calculator and head for the semi-
formal at Campus Inn. Music, free
refreshments, cash bar. 8:00.
White Elephant Sale - Looking for
an albino pachyderm? That and
more at the Union Ballroom, 11:00
My Way Home (Old A&D, 7:00 and
9:05) Nifty camera work, with the
usual Eastern European statement
about the relationship of politics to
White Elephant Sale - Better show
up at the Union (between 11:00 a.m.
and 7:00 p.m.) for this gala event
'cause elephant's never forget.

Pretty Picture, depicts the exper-
iences of a woman who was raped.

African Film - Sambizanga
(School of Education, 7:00) In Portu-
guese with English subtitles.
King of Marvin Gardens (Angell
Aud. A, 7:00 and 10:20) A quietly ex-
cellent film, filled with marvelous
locales and characters. Splendidly
unified and often disturbing. Jack
Nicholson in his one non-macho role.
* * *
Drive, He Said (Angell Aud. A, 8:45'
only) Jack Nicholson directed this
interesting story of the conflicts sur-
rounding a college basketball star.
Great performances by Bruce Dern
and Karen Black. **
Wings (Old A&D, 8:00 only, free
showing) A silent spectacular, star-
ring Gary Cooper and Clara Bow.
Some great aerial stunt sequences.
Spirits of the Dead (Angell Aud. A,
7:00 only) The combined talents of
Edgar Allen Poe, Federico Fellini,
Louis Malle, Roger Vadim, Jane
Fonda and Brigitte Bardot amount to
a high-class European version of
"The Munsters." Check it out. ***
They Came From Within (Angell,
Aud. A, 9:00 only) A sickening, point-
less shocker. Avoid at all costs. *
Wagon Master (Old A&D, 7:00 and
9:05) An excellent John Ford film,
following the journey of a wagon
train across the country. Simple and

The Rain People (Angell Aud. A,
7:00 only) This early Francis Ford
Coppola film is supposedly the
director's personal favorite, but it's
hard to understand why. The depic-
tion of a woman who gets fed up with
married life is trite, and often very

(Harry and Tonto) combines cump-
