ANN ARBOR 8mm FILM FESTIVAL
The dominant film program over the weekend is
definitely this festival. Independent films from all
over the world will be shown, and while some of them
will undoubtedly be duds, there is a good possibility

one of the shows. (Ann Arbor Film Coop; Aud. A,
7:00, 9:00)

RISKY BUSINESS (Paul Brickman, 1983)
The suce ss of this film surprised just about
everyone. TinCruise plays a high school kid who
gets the wholehouse to himself when his parents go
on a vacation. The coming of age which follows is
both unbelievable and hilarious. (cinema 2;-MLB 3,'
7:00.9:00)
GALLIPOLI (Peter Weir, 1981)
The worst of Weir. He tells us that war is hell
through-the story of two Australian runners who en-
ter the British army as cannon-fodder in WWI. The
entire film has nothing new to say, though. Nice
photography-(Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:00,9:00)

ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE (Luis
Bunuel, 1952)
Defoe's story of a shipwrecked man would perhaps

Black comedy, and much more Bunuel. He pokes
