ANN ARBOR THEATER
210 S. 5th; 761-9700
CARMEN
No, not the opera, but a purportedly good film
adaptation. Music, bigger than life, and
cinematography above and beyond most traditional
operas.
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
so far the: film of '84.
MOVIES AT BRIARWOOD
Briarwood Mall; 769-8780
AGAINST ALL ODDS
Not nearly so existential as some have said, but
quite intriguing, especially to those with a strong in-
terest.

FOOTLOOSE
A modern cultural thing viviantly expressing
American youth's predilection for freedom. A
possible successor to Flashdance.
MISUNDERSTOOD
A recently completed film treating an ephemeral
and often sequencious trepidation of existence tem-
porally coinciding with an interesting denoument.
Occasionally mauve and very taupe.
MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON
Poetically mad as always Robin Williams is now
a Russian saxaphonist defecting in New York. The
weak point is that he tries to defect in the cosmetics
department of Macy's while there is a sale on spor-
tingware at Hudson's.
ROMANCING THE STONE
Kathleen Turner (Body Heat . ) and Michael
Douglas star in "this action-packed" adventure film
trailing through underdeveloped territory. Some
people have not compared it to Raiders of the Lost
Ark.
WHERE THE BOYS ARE
Deja vu, maybe (mais oui). Yes, this is a remake
of that 1960 tribute Lauderdale. Gee, this doesn't say
too much of our present return to '50s "muscle-
beach" ideology, does it?
CAMPUS THEATER
1214 S. University; 668-6416
GREYSTOKE
Inspired probably not by a lack of previous in.er-
pretations. this movie again recreates the Tarzar
myth of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

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).
HARD TO HOLD
The story of a big rock star who is on the way down
and who falls in love with a woman who never
thought he was a big rock star. Stiring rock star
Rick Springfield who has appeared in soaps and veen
a video star. Springfield: '..I can put a part of me
into this story."
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.
THE DRESSER
Not furniture, but rather Tom Courtenay, who
plays Skakespearian actor's Albert Finney's
"dresser." One of this year's more artistic efforts.
STATE THEATER
231S. State; 6626264
HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE
The long-awaited screen version of John Irving's
sequel to Garp.

NOSFERATUR (Werner Herzog, 1979)

Murnau. From the director of Fitzcaraldo.
(Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:00,9:00)
SAY AMEN, SOMEBODY (George Nierenberg,

KRAMER VS. KRAMER (Robert Benton, 1980)
Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep divorce and
proceed to battle over Justin Henry, their young son.
Tearjerking on a grand scafe, but with a lot of class,

native Action; MLB 4, 7:00, 9:00)
AMARCORD (FedericoFellini, 1974)
An autobiographical tale of youth in a small Italian
town after the war that consists of many small tales
tied together by a quest to enter the world of adults.
Italian with subtitles. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall,
7:00, 9:15)
CHELSEA GIRLS (Andy Warhol, 1966)
Like, wow, but this promises to be one of the weir-
der experiences on the campus circuit this term. Two
projectors to imitate a split screen, an undetermined
soundtrack, and an opportunity to question one of the
Chelsea girls live and in person. (Cinema 2, Aud. A,
7:00)
THE SEVEN SAMURAI (Akira Kurosawa, 1954)
It is long, and it is Japanese with subtitles, but it is
also a very worthwhile film experience. Toshiro
Mifune is one of the freelance samurai trying to save
a town from raiders. (Ann Arbor Film Coop, Nat.
Sci. Aud, 7:30)
THE BIG CHILL (Lawrence Kasdan, 1983)

funny comedy and inane philosophizing about college'

7:00)

THE WEAVERS: WASN'T THAT A TIME (Jim
Bown, 1982)
A wonderful, heart-warming film about the 1981
reunion of the 1950s folk-singing quartet. Not only is
the film worth seeing on its own merits, but all of the
proceeds, from this evening go to The Ark. (Hill
Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 7:00, 9:00)
BARRY LYNDON (Stanley Kubrick, 1976)
Like all Kubrick films, this is a masterpiece. It
lasts for three hours, but every one of them is worth
it as Kubrick weaves a masterful tale of rise and fall,
love and death, treachery and honor from the
Thackeray novel. The technical side is also wonder-
ful. See it. (Classic Film Theatre; Michigan Theater,
5:15,8:30).

KILLING US SOFTLY (Cambridge Documentary

The us is women. The method of killing is the
image presented in advertising for just about

RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER (Blake Ed-
wards, 1975)

break as Peter Sellers ,plays the blessedly inept In-
spector Clouseau of the Surete. The excellent suppor-
ting cast is also on hand. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429
Hill, 6:30,9:00)

LIQUID SKY (Slava Tsukerman, 1983)
This was going to be an Ann Arbor Premiere, but a
local theater had a special showing, so...The movie,
