COMMERCIAL CINEMA
A Matter of Time - (The
Movies, Briarwood)-This mas-
sively - publicized star - is - born
epic apparently embodies grade-
B American International ,Pic-
tures' attempt to go respectable.
The show contains: a) A chub-
by Liza. Minelli as an Italian
maid who for no justifiable
aesthetic reason is transformed
into a glamorous movie queen;
b) Ingrid Bergman as a mum-
mified Roman combination of
Blanche Dubois and Aunt Clara
The Witch; c) The complete
self-demolition of director and
papa Vincente Minelli's film ca-
reer; 4) A travelog extolling
the artistic virtues of Detroit.
If any of the above items is
your bag, then run to the thea-
ter; if not, then run away, for
God's sake, before this semi-
musical version of The Blob
decides once again it's feeding
time. BOMB
Marathon 'Man - (Michigan)
-John Schlesinger's film from
the best-selling thriller, withi
Laurence Olivier as an ex-Nazi
in New York stalking potential
pray Dustim Hoffman.
The Front - (Campus) -
Woody Allen stars in this al-
ready-celebrated "serious" com-
edy about Hollywood blacklist-
ing of the early '50's.
Face to Face - (The Movies,.
Briarwood) - Ingmar Berg-
man's most recent film focuses
on the emotional and spiritual
dissolution of a female psychia-
trist. Said not to be one of his
best, but Liv Ullman reported-
ly gives a devastating perform-
ance as his trouble protagonist.
Burnt Offerings - (The Mov-
ies, Briarwood) - The latest:
monster epic of the formerly
great Betty Davis, -as she 'ter-
rorizes nice Karen Black and
nice Oliver Reed in the pro-
verbial Old Dark Mansion.
F a m e, thou art a fleeting '
thing ..t.
Fantasia - (State) - For
those who don't mind the syn-
thesis of the cartoon and classi-
cal music cultures, Fantasia re-
minds the supreme Disney cre-
ation and aptly demonstrates
the cartoon medium's potential
for being a legitimate art form.
Unfortunately, modern - day
budget limitations will probably
prevent us from ever seeing the
likes of this wonderment again.
Logan's Run - (The Movies,
Briarwood)- A post-apocalypse
tale of a future domed city
housing the remnants of human-
ity, and of the efforts of two
individualists to escape its stag-
nant confines. A potentially out-
standing film flawed by a weak
ending and an unbelievable nox-
ious performance by Peter Usti-
nov. **%
Alice in Wonderland - (Fox
Village) - A soft-core X ver-
sion of the Carroll classic, self-
heralded as a "breakthrough"
in the wedding of culture, mu-
sic and erotica, and boasting
Kristina De Bell, "the hottest
new sex star in cinema." It's
not and she's not. Save your
money and the Art I. BOMB
God Told Me To - (Fifth
Forum) - The latest entry in
the evil messiah sweepstakes,
proclaimed by its pitchmen to
"give you nightmares forever."
Doubtful, unless they're refer-
ring to star Sandy Dennis.

ual money-clutching maniac en-
ployed in similar films. Ameri-
can Graffiti's Richard Dreyfuss
is excellent in the title role.
***1/2
Paper Chase - (Mediatrics,
Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 & 9) - This
fictional chronicle of a Harvard
law student'sfirst year makes
a pleasant but not very dramat-
ic film. It's notable for John
Houseman's Oscar-winning mov-
ie debut as a brilliant, icily
impersonal law prof, but the
picture contains little else that's
really memorable. If you're
simply looking for a leisurely
evening's entertainment com-
plete with flashes of deja vu,
then you'll probably like this.
Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs - (Ann Arbor Film Co-
op, MLB 3, 1:30 & 4:30, 7 &
10:30) - Disney's first feature-
length cartoon took the anima-
tion medium by storm and rev-
olutionized it forever; and in
many ways it remains the best
film the studio ever produced.
Absolutely timeless, and certain-
ly not to be missed if you've
never seen it. ****
Steamboat Bill, Jr. & The
Navigator - (Ann Arbor Film
Co-op, MLB 3, complete shows
at 3 & 8:45) - Two films from
the first genius of the Ameri-
can Comic Cinema, Buster Kea-
ton. I saw The Navigator years
ago, and I still thing it's one
of the very funniest pictures.
I've ever seen. ****
La Collectionneuse - (Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, MLB 4, 7
only) - A study of the Games
People Play revolving around
a potential but unrealized love
relationship. 'This was th first
of Eric Rohmer's "moral tales,"
which was followed by the more
famous Claire's Knee and oth-
ers. Thodgh this entry is said
to be on a somewhat lesser
level than its successors, it's
probably an interesting excur-
sion.
A Very Curious Girl - (Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, MLB 4, 9
only) - A country girl em-
berks on an ambitious and ris-
que money-making scheme. A
recent film by French director
Nelly Kaplan.
Law and Disorder - (Couzens
Film C -,Couzens Caf., 8 &
10) -.f lm featuring Carroll
O'Connor and Ernest Borgnine
as neighborhood ethnics who
decide to become vigilante cops.
Billed as a comedy, the film
got very poor distribution when
first released last year, and I've
never seen it.

Children of Paradise - (Ann
Arbor Film Co-op, MLB 3, 7:30
only) - Marcel Carne's film
about the lives of theater peo-
ple in 19th-century Paris took
nearly three years to film dur-
ing World War II. Its partici-
pants, constantly on the run
from arrest by the occupying
Nazis, filmed whenever and
wherever they could, and wound
up creating what some consid-
er the finest film ever made.
I 've yet to see it, and don't
intend to miss it this time
around.
Grande Illusion - (Cinema
Guild. Arch. And., 7 & 9) -
Jean Renoir's film of French-
men in a WW I German pri-
son camp is also a prime cn-
didate on the best nicture list
(Orson Welles says it's the one
film he'd like to be locked in
a room forever with). I've seen
it twice, and must confess I
have never been able to grasp
the enduring adoration for it;
Renoir's overlying theme of the
aristocratic order thrust out -of
its time element by the chaos
of the new world probably car-
ries much deepertmeaning for
a European spectator than for
an American. For me, Grande
Illusion's greatest, significance
lay in being the first of all the
prison escape films, but the pic-
ture's obviously deeper mean-
ings struck me - from the per-
spective of my own life's ex-
perience - as being from an-
other planet. -*
Young Frankenstein - (Me-
diatrics, Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 &
9) - Mel Brooks' masterful
spoof of the Karloff original
succeeds - perhaps uninten-

tionally - in being as dramat-
ic as it is humorous. And that
unlikely combination will make
this film enduringly memorable.
State of the Union - (Cine-
ma II, Ang. Aud. A, 7 &9)
1947 Frank Capra film about a
reform candidate for president
(Spencer Tracy) who gradually
looses his pristine image
through compromise to various
pressure groups. This last of
Capra's "Common Man" films
somehow lacks the spark of his
orevious efforts, despite the
Tracy - Katherine Hepburn star
combination. **

3:00 ONLY
Buster Keaton was a comic genius, perhaps the most natural
filmmaker America has ever produced; he's also neglected. This
is an opportunity to see him at his best, as an artist at least
as equal to Charlie Chaplin in laughter and superior cinematically.
STEAMBOAT BILL, JR.
(CHARLES F. REISNER, 1927)
Keaton's last great film takes place on the Mississippi, focusing
on the bitter rivalry of two riverboat owners and Keaton's favorite
theme of an effete youth who is extended by crisis and turns out,
despite himself-a hero. The climax is the famous cyclone scene, Ge a
probably the most credible physical disaster ever planned for a
movie, in which a two-ton wall crashes down around a be- ,
wildered Keaton. with Marion Byron. Silent.
T HE NAVIGATOR
(Buster Keaton & Dounold Crisp, 1924) 231,south state
THE NAVIGATOR stands with THE GENERAL at the very top
of Keaton's great films. He plays Rollo Treadway, a young mil-
lionaire stranded with a young rich girl, alone, on a huge ocean
liner. Accustomed to having their every need met, the couple
must adapt the ship's huge accommodations to their needs. The
whole range of Keaton's talents, cinematic and comedic, are
extended in THE NAVIGATOR, and if you could see just one Today at 1:00-3:00-5:05-

CINEMA
Shoot the Piano Player-(Cine-
ma Guild, Arch. Aud., 7 & 9:05)
- A most untypical black com-
edy effort by Francois Truffaut
about a downtrodden nightclub
pianist battling various gang-
sters to save the woman he
loves. A neo-absurdist film that
is both lyrical and bitingly un-

more compelling than Truffaut's
usual cotton candy. ***%
The Apprenticeship of Duddy
Kravitz - (Cinema II, Ang.
Aud. A, 7 & 9) - Canadian
film about a young man hell-
bent on becoming a success,
even if it means acquiring a
sense of moral blindness in or-
der to achieve it. The'picture
has been criticized as being
anti-Semitic, but is actually a
broad, non-bigoted study of false
values and the perversion of un-
bridled free enterprise. This
theme isn't a new one to mov-
ies, but in this case Duddy is

character in contrast to the us-

CINEMA
WR: Mysteries of the Organ-
ism - (Cinema II, Ang. Aud.
A, 7 & 9) - A bizarre Yugo-
slavian film which fluctuates
erratically around the teachings
of psychologist - guru Wilheim
Reich - sometimes in praise,
sometimes in parody. The pic-
ture was filmed half in Yugo-
slavia and half in N1ew York
City, which indicates its schizo-
nhrenic nature - it's a some-
times expressionistic, some-
times nihilistic, often Godard-
ianly political jumble that I
frankly did not get much out
of when I saw it; perhaps
Reich's disciples and followers
will glean more meaning from
it than the rest of us. Incident-
ally, don't be misled by the
film's X rating - it contains
a minimum of nudity and overt
sex, and the rating may be
attributed simply to the pic-
1'ire's determined weirdness.
