Return of the Pink Panther-
(The Movies, Briarwood) --1975
sequel to Peter Sellers' famous
Inspector Clousseau films of
more than a decade ago. An
accurate re-assemblage with all
the laughs intact, but some-
for to her subsequent, exquisite
Love and Anarchy. It should, be
noted, though, that most critics
haved and raved over this flick,
so maybe you'd enjoy it - but
don't say you weren't warned.**
The Andromeda Strain -
(Couzens Cafeteria, 7, 10:30)-
Team of scientists runs desper-
ate race to discover cause of
the fall of the 1950's most fa-
mous villian, Sen. Joseph Mc-
Carthy. For those who can re-j
member back that far, a sob-
ering nostalgia trip; For those
who can't, a terrifying look at
the potential for totalitarianism
in America. ****
The Bicycle Thief - (Cine-
ma Guild, Arch. Aud., 7, 9:05)
- In poverty - stricken post-,
war Italy, a bicycle was usual-
ly an absolute necessity for
maintaining a job. Vittorio Di-
Sica's drama of a paper hang-

stolen vehicle is heart-break-

Blow-Up - (Ann Arbor Film

- Young, amoral photographer

Easy Rider and Five Easy
Pieces - (Matrix, Easy Rider
at 7, Five Easy Pieces at 9) -
Easy Rider seems more like a
haunting, lyrical anachronism
with each passing outing (were
people really like that then?).
Five Easy Pieces tackles the
ambitious theme of the intellect-!
ual vs. the physical in human
relationships, but sadly fails to!
provide even an initial insight
to the dilemma, much less offerR
a solution. As the central char-
acter, Jack Nicholson emerges
more as spoiled brat than alien-
ated aesthetic. **
Images - (Ann Arbor Film
Co-op, Angell Aud. A, 7, 9) -1
Robert Altman's surrealistic
study of a young woman's psy-
chological disentegration rips
off liberally from Polanski's
Repulsion and Fellini's Juliet of
the Spirits, but still survives as
a fairly absorbing, frightening
film. Susannah York is superb
as the disturbed protagonist. ***
The Men Who Tread on the
Tiger's Tails - (Cinema Guild,
Arch. Aud., 7, 9:05) - Early
Kurasawa comedy of a Medie-
val Japanese lord using various
ingenious means to escape his
enemies. Based on traditional
Kabuki play. -

nel 7. Monty Python takes a

p.m. For another glance at

Portrait of Evil at 11:30 on
A Streetcar Named Desire-
(Cinema Guild, Arch. Aud., 7,
9:05) - America's greatest play
receives suitably memorable
screen treatment in the sensi-
tive hands of director Elia Ka-
zan. In the lead roles, Marlon
Brando and Vivien Leigh give
performances that will live as
long as film endures as an art
medium. Don't miss this one.
The Conversation - Coppola's
film of a bugging expert beseig-
ed by guilt and fear over his
machinations seems increasing-
ly full of holes as far as plot
logic goes., but remains the clas-
sic study of the paranoia of the
Nixonian (and post-Nixonian)
age. As the non-committed,
chamelon - like eavesdropper,
Gene Hackman cames as close
as anyone could to capturing
the terror beneath the surface
in all of us. ****
Johnny Guitar - (Cinema II,
Angell Aud. A, 7 only) - A
saloon owner (Joan Crawford)
coerces her former lover (Ster-
ling Hayden) into battling her
enemies in a small Western
town. An odd, feminist - orient-
ed film that is highly revered,
by a large number of foreignI
critics: Somenviewers here may;
think it equally arresting, but
the majority will probably find
the whole endeavor on the dis-
tinctly cornball side. **
