THE DESSE

ANN ARBOR THEATER
210 S. 5th; 761-9700
BROADWAY DANNY ROSE
Woody Allen is back with Mia Farrow, New York,
Insecurities, and even some loosely organized
crime; who would ask for more?
FANNY AND ALEXANDER
Bergman claims Fanny and Alex to be his final
film. If it is, he has ended his stellar career in an
unusually optimistic spirit.
LIQUID SKY
When you're looking for dinner in the Big Apple,
you probably don't think of heroin and orgasms.
You're not an alien in a barbeque, though. This
negative approach to post-punk cinema, seriously, is

THE DRESSER
A critically appealing
of actors wrestling to internret Shakesneare. Oc-
casionally very intense, drama turns around a pair
FOOTLOOSE
A modern cultural thing viviantly expressing
American youth's predilection for freedom. A
possible successor to Flashdance.
HARRY AND SON
Paul Newman (girls sigh) returns to star in,
direct, co-produce, and co-write this potentially ap-
pealing melodrama. Robby Benson co-stars.
REUBEN'REUBEN
Tom Conti cuts an erotic swath through the college
lecture curcuit as a philandering poet just trying to
earn a buck. Co-eds, housewives, and the east-coast
atmosphere combine to stimulate his creativity.
SILKWOOD
Karen Silkwood discovers disturbing things about
her plutonium plant. When she attempts to expose
them, she mysteriously dies in a car accident.
UNFAITHFULLY YOURS
English humorist Natassja Kinski joins the stun-

end of this seductive flirt-flick justified the means.
But who knows where their thumbs have been,
anyways.
FOX-VILLAGE THEATER
Maple Village; 769-1300
TERMS OF ENDEARMENT
A widow (Shirley MacLaine), tries to settle some
of the confusing points of a mother/daughter
relationship- with her daughter (Debra Winger).
GORKY PARK
Can a jaded Russian agent detective save Russia
and the girl he loves from an international smuggling
scheme? '
ICE PIRATES
Star Wars may have had seven good years, but it
seems that its luck has run out. It's called a "space
comedy," but parody may be closer to the mark.
RETURN OF THE JEDI
Third in a series of space-age flicks that combine
action, amusine scenarios andlchrismatic chara

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL (Terry
Gillian and Terry Jones, 1975)
Another of the permanent film attractions. The
British comedy troupe looks at Camelot and friends,
and while this film is not their funniest, it is still fun-
ny and worth seeing. (Classic Film Theatre;
Michigan Theatre, 5:15, 9:00)
JABBERWOCKY (Terry Gilliam, 1977)
A subset of Monty Python takes another look at the
Arthurian legends. (Classic Film Theatre; Michigan
Theater, 7:10, 10:50)
CASABLANCA (Michael Curtiz, 1943)
Three campus favorites in one night will probably
leave a lot of confused moviegoers. Humphrey
Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in love and intrigue
along the popular refugee route in WWI. A lot of fun
to see or see again. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill,
8:00,10:00)
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (Milos
Forman, 1975)
A big winner on Oscar night and deservedly so.
Jack Nicholson tries to escape prison by getting him-
self committed to a mental hospital. His plan works a
little too well. Excellent supporting cast, too, in an
excellent film. (Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:00,
9:30)
THE WEAVERS: WASN'T*THAT A TIME (Jim
Brown, 1982)
BrAnother excellent movie on a night that has too
many of them. A reunion of the '50s folksingers is
chronicled. The movie is so full of love and good
vibes it's contagious. You can't leave without a
warm feeling inside. (Alternative Action; MLB 4,
7:30,9:00)

to find out. Serbo-Croatian with subtitles. (Ann Arbor
Film Coop; MLB 4, 8:30)
GUYS AND DOLLS (Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1955)
Frank Sinatra and Marion Brando star in an adap-
tation of the Broadway musical. Many of the songs
are classics, and this is as good a chance as any to
practice humming along. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 6:45)
THE MERRY WIDOW (Erich von Stroheim, 1925)
An adaptation of the opera, lacking sound. To
make up for it, there will be a live piano accom-
paniment during the film, just like the old days.
(Cinema 2, Aud. A, 9:30)

THE SEA WOLF (Michael Curtiz, 1941)
From the story by Jack London comes a sea cap-

deficiencies through maniacal actions. From the
director of Casablanca. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall,

Trevor, who won an Oscar. A gangster holds
hostages to get passage out of the country. (Cinema

is the centerpiece of a film about a Catholic survivor
of a Nazi concentration camp. (Ann Arbor Film
Coop; MLB 3, 6:30, 9:15)
A THOUSAND CLOWNS (Fred Coe, 1966)
Jason Robards feels the heat from neighbors who
don't think he is giving his nephew the proper up-
bringing and want him to go out and get a job.
(Alternative Action; Nat. Sci. Aud. 7:00, 9:15)
THE STATE OF THINGS (Wim Wenders, 1983)
Another in a vast number of Ann Arbor premieres,
The State of Things is a fictionalized account of what
the director did when a producer left him without
promised funding. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:00,9:15)
MANHATTAN (Woody Allen, 1979)
Nicely photographed, and the last really hilarious
film by Allen who plays a man trying to get a new
relationship going while his former wife is going to
write a book about his prior one. Well worth seeing.
(Mediatrics; MLB 4,7:00, 9:00)

UTAMARO & HIS FIVE WOMAN (Kenji Mizoguchi,
1946)
The Japanese film festival presents a look at
Utamaro, an 18th century Japanese printmaker. As
can be seen by the title, printmaking was probably
not his only interest. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall,
7:00, FREE)
VIDAS SECAS (Nelson Pereira dos Santos, 1963)
The title, translated, is "Barren Lives," and the
film shows that this is the type of life people lead as
they try to live in the Northeast portion of Brazil,
Portuguese with subtitles. (Ann Arbor Film Coop
and a host of University departments; MLB 1, 8:00,
FREE) '.
