Bernardo Bertolucci's film of a,
young Italian who joins Musso-
lini's secret police in order to
gain some feeling of emotional
solidity in an increasingly dis-
integrating society. The film's
prevailing theory that moral
perversion led to the political
insanity of the times may be as
dubious as in The Damned or
Cabaret, but Bertolucci's direc-
toral talents are so awesome
that they totally envelope any
thematic shortcomings that may
exist. A perverse and brilliant
film. ***

d ventiire, storv of the '50's. **

Woody Allen play ressurecting
Bogie as Everyman' s ideal.
H e r b e r t Ross's direction is
somewhat stagebound w.hle n
placed next to Allen's self-pro-
duced pictures, but the basic,
very funny play script remains
virtually intact. ***
Logan's Run-(Couzens Film
Co-op, Couzens Cafeteria, 8 &
1d)-A post-apocalypse tale of
a 23rd Century city housing the
remnants of humanity, and of
the efforts of two individualists
to escape its stagnant confines.
The first half of the film is
promising; the second half falls
flat on its face, largely through
a noxiously obtrusive, mood-de-
molishing performance by the
once-talented Peter Ustinov. =**%/

The Story of Adele H-(Cine-

Francois Truffaut's recent study
of \infatuation carried to its ex-
treme, detailing Adale Hugo's
psychotic round-the-world pur-
suit of a young army officer who
couldn't care less about her.
Falling in love with love is the
name, of the game here, and
while Truffaut's direction is
rather stolid, Isabelle Adjani's
virtuoso depiction of the obsess-
ed heroine manages to bring
the enterprise off.***
