ALL WEEK LONG
COMMERCIAL CINEMA
A Delicate Balance - (Cam-
pus) - Edward Albee's prize-
winning drama is brought to the
screen via the auspices of the
now-defunct American Film
Theatre (AFT). It is (and is in-
tended to be) a photographed
stage play, and thus may be jar-
ring to the general film viewer
used to a constantly moving
camera and multiple scene
changes. Albee's drama about
the spoken and unspoken ter-
rors surrounding a pair of mid-
dle aged couples is no Virginia
Woolf, but it stands as one of
the better offerings of the AFT
series. A high-powered cast
headed by Katherine Hepburn
and Paul Scofield help things
along considerably.**
A Woman Under the Influence
- (The Movies, Briarwood) -
John Cassavetes' searing, merci-
less study of non-communicative
marriage, with Gena Rowlands
and Peter Falk working the di-
rector's improvisational tech-
nique to an almost unbearable
intensity. Rowlands is simply
spectacular, deserving of every
award on record including the
Oscar she didn't win. ****
Fantasia - (State) - For
those who don't mind cartoons
set to classical music, Fantasia
remains the supreme Disney
creation and admirably demon-
strates the cartoon medium's
potential as a legitimate art
form. The "Rite of Spring" and
"Night on Bald Mountain" se-
quences are like nothing seen on
film before or since. ****
The Happy Hooker - (The
Movies, Briarwood) - Lynn
Redgrave's seductively comic
performance just isn't enough
to redeem this otherwies very
tepid film version of the adven-
tures of Xaviera Hollender.
Save your money for the Art I.**
Return of the Pink Panther -
(The Moves, Briarwood) - 1975
sequel to Peter Sellers' famous
Inspector Clousseau films of
more than a decade ago. It
strikes one as a wistful, nostal-
gic effort to re-capture a time
of relative innocence, when we
could laugh without bitter cyni-
cism. Sadly, what is past is
past, and the film comes on as
nothing so much as a flat, des-
perate museum piece. **
Farewell, My Lovely - (Mich-
igan) Minimally' entertaining
adaptaton of the Raymond
Chandler novel, filmed much
better thirty years ago as "Mur-
der, My Sweet". Poorly per-
formed by sleepy Robert Mitch-
um and frantic Charlotte Rampl-
ing. *

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 11
CINEMA
Badlands - (Cinema II, An-
gell Aud. A, 7 & 9) - A young
laborer and his teen-age girl
friend drift icily, almost acci-
dentally into a series of murders
spanning several states in the
Northwest. An absolutely stun-
ning, esoteric debut by writer-
director Terence Malick, whose
first film is as original in style
and invention as was Bonnie and
Clyde almost a decade ago. In-
deed, the direction of Badlands

L
is so good it often seems to out-
distance its subject matter since
killers-on-the-lam films have be-
come a noted cliche of recent
years. If Mr. Malick would get
really challenging material to
work with, the possibilities
would be frightening. ****
Mississippi Mermaid - (Cine-
ma Guild, Arch. Aud., 7 & 9:05)
-Dull, almost throw-away Truf-
faut, performed with appropri-
ate numbness by Jean-Paul Bel-
mondo and Catherine Deneuve.
N.Y. Times' Vincent Canby says
"I liked it," - you won't. **
The Conversation - (Media-
tres, Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:30 & 9:30)
-Coppola's film of a bugging
expert besieged by guilt and
fear over his machinations,
seems increasingly full of holes
as far as plot logic goes, but
remainsathe classic study of the
paranoia of the Nixonian (and
post-Nixonian age. As the non-
c o m m itt e dgchameleon-like
eavesdropper, Gene Hackman
comes as close as anyone could
to capturing the terror beneath
the surface in all of us. ****
Easy Rider and Five Easy
Pieces - (Matrix, Easy Rider
at 7, Five Easy Pieces at 9) -
Easy Rider seems more a
haunting, lyrical anachronism
with each passing outing (were
neople really like that then?)
Five Easy Pieces tackles the
ambitious theme of the intellec-
tual vs. the physical in human
relationships. but sadly fails to,
orovirie even an initial insight toI
the dilemma, much less offer al
solution. As the central charac-'
ter, Jack Nicholson emerges
more as spoiled brat than alien-
ated aesthetic. **
Charade-(Co'izens Cafeteria,
8 & 10) - Rich widow Audrey
Hepburn is pursued across Eu-
rope by Cary Grant and an en-
gaging assortment of hoods, all
in search of her late husband's
buried loot. An enjoyable thriller
in the Hitchcock style, although
definitely not Hitchcock. ***

CINEMA
Sleeper - (Ann Arbor Film
Co-op, MLB 3, 7, 8:45 & 10:30) -
Back in wide screen, in case you
missed it on TV. Woody Allen's
futuristic fantasy is his most
structurally solid and thought-
ful film, although as such it sac-
rifices some of the uninhibited
mania of his earlier efforts.
Nonetheless, grade-A gold. ****
Casino Royale - (Ann Arbor
Film Co-op, MLB 4, 7:15 & 9:30)
- Horrible parody of James
Bond films starring, among too
many others, Woody Allen. Six
different directors supposedly
worked on this flick at one time
or another, and boy, it shows -
the resulting mess is a totally
incoherent 104-minute drudge
that even (and perhaps especial-
ly) hard-core Allen fans should
avoid. *
Bus Stop - (Cinema Guild,
Arch. Aud., 7 &9:05) - Marilyn
Monroe is perfectly cast as a
lonely nightclub dancer who gets
pursued cross country by a tem-
pestuous, marginally civilized
rodeo cowboy (Don Murray).

Excellent adaptation of the Wil-
liam Inge play.
The Passenger - (Cinema II,
Angell Aud. A, 7 & 9:05) - Dis-
illusioned journalist switches
identity with a dead acquain-
tance in Northern Africa, soon
finds himself dangerously im-
mersed in the other man's form-
er existence. Antonioni's first
film features wonderfully evoca-
tive performance by Jack Nich-
olson as the journalist, but falls
flat whenever the director in-
jects his chronic pop-existential-
ist philosophy into the proceed-
ings. Still, if not taken for more
than it is, an enjoyable film. ***
The Great Gatsby - (Media-
trics, Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 & 9:45) -
The most pre-ballyhooed cine-
matic - event of the decade
emerges as a mouse. Director
Jack Clayton's adaptation of the
Fitzgerald novel is so reverent
that it scarcely twitches at all-
it just sits there like an honored,
slightly decaying statue. It is
complimented by spectacularly
imperfect casting, from poor
Rob Redford on down. **
