COMMERCIAL CINEMA
Lucky -Lady-(Fifth Forum)-
An utterly routine, standard
formula crooks-on-the-lam film
in which every person can be
predicted at least ten minutes
before it takes place. As far as
stars go, the movie's big-name
trio of Liza Minelli, Gene Hack-
man and Burt Reynolds seem
obviously to have been matched
more for their box-office draw
than for their dramatic corn-
patability.**
Nashville -(Campus)-Robert
Altman's giant country epic back
for a return engagement. Prob-
ably the most wildly -aised
American film sine Dr.
Strangelove, but is it really a
soul-searching X-ray of ou so-
ciety, or jst a smugly simplis-
tic nose-thumbing at Middle
America? You be the judge, but
either way a genuine original,
and not to be missed.***
Hustle-(State)-A surprising
diverting deteective flick star-
ring Burt Reynolds and Cather-
ine Deneuve. The film contains
a strong story line and reaso i-
ably taught Robert Aldrich di-
rection, and also is a show in
which Big Burt does not go
smirking triumphantly off into
the sunset-which itself may be
worth the price of admission.***
Dog Day Afternoon-(Fox Vil-
lage-Sidney Lumet's film about
an actual bungled bank robery
in Brooklyn, which turned into
a kind of city-wide happeningI
thanks to the whacky sideshow
eccentricities of the felons in-
volved. In its intimate detailing
of the event, the film lakes on
a kind of schizophrenic quality,
as what begins as an hilarioisl'
botched, slapstick noldup grad-
ually changes into. a grim, soul
searching vigil between the
thieves and their ..tage in
out surrounding the buildings. As
surrounding the building. As
such, Dog Day Afternoon stnkes
a very tenuous balance between
farce and tragedy, and its too-
long running time tends to leave
the viewer in a state of unease.
Even so, the story is very com-
pelling, and the eleatric per-
formance by Al Pacino as the
exhibitionistic "brains" of the
operation and John Cazelle as
his silent, psychoti sidekick
make this a better film than it
perhaps deserves.***
The Black Bird-(Michigan)-
Whad'ya know: the worst film
of 1976 and here it is only Janu-
ary 10th. Certainly a landmark
of sorts. BOMB.'
The Killer Elte-(The Moves,
Broarwood) - Why does Sam
Peckinpah seem more and more

a parody of himself" Has le
embarked on a conscixus cam-i
paign of self-humiliation, or
have his creative juices run
so dry that he is genuinely un-
aware of what he's doing to
his recent films? his latest is
a tired re-hash on his usual
theme of rugged individualists
selling out to some sinister mor.-
olith, this time modernized to
incorporate the current pop
theme of the CIA as villain. On
this occasion, paid gvernment
killer Robert Duvall defects to
the highest bidder, as former
co-killer James Caan hunts him
down. All very grim, straight-
laced stuff, but conducted in
such a frenzied, satirical style
that one can't believe Pekinpah
was taking it seriously-or was
, he? Either a very funny or very
sad enterprize, depending on
how you look at it.**

CINEMA
I Confess-(Cinema II, Angell
Aud. A, 7 & 9)-Canadian priest
is faced with moral dilemma of
divulging guilt admited to hm
by murderer during confession,'
or else being charged with the
m'urder himself. Offbeat H,eh~-
cock film, and not one of his
best.**
Deep Throat - (New World,
MLB 3 & 4, 7, 8:30 & 10:00)-
The cinema world's most und-
serving financial tri'impn this'
side of Harold and Maude. No
better or worse than most stand
ard-quality norn, Deeo Throat
began to gain notoriety as the
test case in a landmark New
York ornorauhy suit. Throat
s"bsecpiently soared to i:red-
ihle but entrenched s t a i s
thronghot America, and is nov
embarked on an inexorable
march to conquer Erope. If
you'd like to be a part of an
international f i1 m bgnnenrg,
then yo" shohld probably go see
it. On the other hand, if you're
looking for items like n inter-
esting niot, interesting acting,
interesting direction-r even
interestiq sx-nvell, Penthouse
is a bick cheaer.*
Blhping Saddles-(Medintris,
brat. S-i. Avd., 7, 8:45, 10:37-
The film that insured Mel
1rook's imnvrtalitv. both artis-
tically and financially. Mos - of
it is ouite funny, desne the
fact that Brooks will stoon to
nracically anything to get a
laugh. Even his most bnal ef.
forts seem to work hnoronlv
here,, althogh the film e final
hectic climax falls frenriedly,
thnddingly flat.***_
IThe Garden of the FinziCon-
tins -,(Cinema Guild, Arch.
Aud., 7 & 9:05)-Vittorio Di-
Sica's lyrical heart-rending film
of an artistocratic Italian Jew-
ish family in World War II, who
await their inevitable doom
admist the fantasy-traoring of
their estate - the world oside
seemingly no more than a bad
dream. One of the most visually
beautiful films in memory, with
the thematic solidness to richly
deserve the many honors be-
stowed upon it. Don't miss this
one.*

Emmannuelle - (Matrix, 7 &
9:30) - The highly-touted soft-
core porn film, the one that
peddled itself under the slogan
"lets you feel good without feel-
ing bad." The real problem wlth
this stultifyingly dull film is that
it doesn't let you feel at all.
For a vicarious thrill, maybe.*

Fantastic Planet - (N e w
World, Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 & 9) -
A wonderfully imaginative sci-
fi cartoon from Czechoslovakia
involving a reversal on socie-
ty's dog-and-cat-syndrome. On a
make-believe planet, small, hu-
man-like creatures called
"Oms" are kept as pets by their
huge, less-than-human masters.
Eventually the Oms rebel
against their third-class status,
and soon are engaged 1i armed
warfare against their overlords.
The clever plot and beatifully
original animation make Fan-
tastic Planet both funny and sus-
pensful, although an all-too-pat,
all-too-brief resolution at the end
spoils things a little.***

An American in Paris - (Cin-
ema Guild, Arch. Aud., 7?&
9:05) - Ultimate example of a
film musical redeemed utterly
and exclusively by its singing
and dancing. Story of the life
and loves of - you guessed it -
an American in Paris (G e r e
Kelly) is extremely threadbare
even for a musical comedy. But
a healthy dose of George Gersh-
win sings keeps things jump-
ing remarkably well, and t; e
film's focal point - an extended
ballet set to Gershwin's title
composition - is a choreogra-
phic achievement unparadled in I
film hostory. A movie whe:-e one
doesn't have to think at all -
and probably enjoyable accause
of that.***
O Lucky Man - (Ann Arbor
Film Co-op, Aud. A, 6:30 & 9:30)
- Lindsay Anderson's epic al-
legory of a modern-day Candide
wandering innocently and optim-
.istically through a world which
seems created for the precise
Iurpose of disecting him. A
snrawling, loosely-connected film,
that slirprisingly works most ofI
the time, due largely to Mal-
com MacDowell's wonderful por-
trnyal of the bright-eyed, gull-
ible protagonist. The film is cer-
tainly too long, and is furt er
bogged down by the constant ir-
ritating intrusion of an obscure
British rock group. Every twen-
tv minutes or so we get an ex-
tended sequence of the group

The most
beautiful picture ever
of a woman's
breasts.
It's a tlermogram-a picture of heat patterns in breast
tissue.
Along with a, mammogram (X-ray), it's the most advanced
way to spot trouble before it's felt as a lump.
And that will save lives.
And that's beautiful.
100,000 women this year will be tested at Breast Diagnostic
Centers set up by the American Cancer Society and the
National Cancer Institute.
But we're greedy. We want to protect millions of women.
And men and children, too.
Another major project is looking into possible causes of
cancer in our environment-our habits, foods, jobs.
We need money for all our cancer research. Please give.,
We want to wipe out cancer in your lifetime.

Wind-the two films make ap-

breaking every "cool movie"
