ALL OF ME
Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin find their souls
sharing the same body in still another Martin
collaboration with writer/director Carl Reiner that
has been getting surprisingly good reviews (con-
sidering their track record together) and a lot of
business (State Theater, 231 S. State; 662-6264).
AMADEUS
Milos Forman (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest,
Ragtime) adapts the highly acclaimed Broadway

wood Mall; 769-8780)
THE BOSTONIANS
Adaptation of the Henry James novel starring
Christopher Reeves sans the Superman tights.

THE EVIL THAT MEN DO
Charles Bronson doing what he does best -
blowing people away in an adventure yarn that once
again casts him as a vigilante. (Fox Village, 375 N.
Maple; 769-1300).
GHOSTBUSTERS
Bill Murray is the sole gem of this over budgeted,
over popular comedy that has too many gimmicks
and too few laughs. (Fox Village, 375 N. Maple; 769-
1300).
INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM
This sequel to Raiders Of The Lost Ark is a crudely
assembled, cheap looking, boring disappointment.
Lucas and Spielberg are now making the exact type
of'heartless, crassly exploitative movies they once
promised to rally against. (Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall; 769-8780)
IRRECONCILABLE DIFFERENCES
Always precociously cute Drew Barrymore sues
her parents, Ryan O'Neil and Shelly Long, for a
child-parent divorce. (State Theater, 231 S. State;

Yo'ng Ralph Macchio learns philosophy, and more
importantly how to kick ass, in a juvenile Rocky.
(Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall; 769-8780).

THE NEVERENDING STORY

fairy tale about a ten year old boy who enters another
world through a book he's reading. (Fox Village, 375
N. Maple; 769-1300).

redemption. With Sally Field and Scott Harris.
(Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall; 769-8780)
PURPLE RAIN
Those who find Prince's music endearing will
likely find his first film venture equally so. Those
who don't, won't. (State Theater, 231 S. State; 662-
6264).
REVENGE OF NERDS/ BACHELOR PARTY
A double feature of last summer's two worst ex-
ploitation comedies about beer and big breasts.

army barracks during the 1940's. By Norman

CASINO ROYALE (John Huston & Co., 1967)
' U A case of the movie making ending with the selec
tion of the cast, which has Peter Sellers, David
Niven, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress, Orson Welles,
William Holden, and others. But the film itself is
nowhere. near as funny as you might expect.
(Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud.,9:10 p.m.)

THE DRESSER (Peter Yates, 1983)
An acting tour de force and a very intense
cinematic experience, this is the kind of film every
week should start off with. Albert Finney is an aging
Shakespearian actor in WWII. Peter Courtenay is his
dresser. Both were deserved Oscar nominees. See
this. (Cinema 2; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 p.m., 9:30 p.m.)
DIVA (Jean-Jacques Beiniex, 1982)
A romance between an opera star and a postal
clerk is the plot for what some have termed the first
punk or new wave cinematic experience. French
with subtitles. (Michigan Theater Foundation;
Michigan Theater, 7 p.m., 9:25 p.m.)
LIQUID SKY (Slava Tsukerman, 1983)
The operative word for this science-fiction film
made by some Russian emigres is weird. Aliens find
themselves attracted to a chemical produced only at
the height of orgasm. There is only one way to get it.
(Ann Arbor Film Coop; MLB 3,7 p.m., 9 p.m.)
YENTL (Barbra Streisand, 1983)
Streisand also stars and does a lot of singing. She
decides she wants to go to a Yeshiva which only ac-
cepts men. Guess what she does. Also with Amy Ir-
ving and Mandy Patinkin. From a story by Isaac
Bashevis Singer. Dolby stereo. (Cinema Guild;
Lorch Hall, 7 p.m., 9:30 p.m.)
REDS (Warren Beatty, 1981)
A long but never boring love story during the
Russian Revolution between Beatty and Diane
Keaton, as John Reed and Louise Bryant, two
Bolshevic sympathizers. Worth seeing.
(Mediatrics; MLB 4,7:15 p.m.)
SA T DAY
MANHATTAN (Woody Allen, 1979)
Probably Allen's best film. He heads a wonderful
cast which also includes Mariel Hemingway, Meryl
Streep, and Diane Keaton. Great black-and-white
cinematography. Allen is on the rebound from one
wife and finds a much younger woman attractive.
(Alternative Action; MLB 3, 7:30 p.m., 9:15 p.m.)
A TASTE OF HONEY (Tony Richardson, 1961)
Hill Street Cinema returns with a film based on a
Broadway play dealing with the entry into the world
of women by a girl who is not the world's most at-
tractive. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 8:15 p.m.,
10:15 p.m.)
DERSU UZALA (Akira Kurowawa,1975)
Mapmakers in Russia come across the title
character in the inhospitable Siberian countryside,
in which the film was shot. Japanese and Russian
with subtitles, the film won an Oscar as Best Foreign
film. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7p.m., 9:30p.m.)
WUTHERING HEIGHTS (Luis Bunuel, 1953)
The master of the surreal tries an adaptation of the
Bronte novel. Many feel this one is the best one.
Spanish with subtitles. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall,7
M., 9pM.)
BARBARELLA (Roger Vadim,1968)
Jane Fonda was slightly less socially aware back
at the start of her career when she starred in this
science fiction spoof which features a typical plot of
good versus evil. (Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7:15
p.m.)

NEIGHBORS (John Avildson,1982)
Comedy with Belushi and Aykroyd.It has a few good
moments, and will not put you to sleep, but overall
the humor is a little thin as a crazy Aykroyd invades
the quiet suburban life of Belushi. (Ann Arbor Film
Coop; MLB 4,7 p.m.)
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (Stanley Kubrick, 1971)
A masterpiece. Malcolm McDowell is the star, and
the vehicle through which Kubrick takes a not so
favorable look at society. A bit violent, but never
gratuitously. Technically flawless. From the An-
thony Burgess novel. Highly recommended. (Ann
Arbor Film Coop; MLB 4, 8:45 p.m.)

REDS (Warren Beatty, 1981)
See Friday's listing, but watch out, because the
location is different tonight. (Mediatrics; Nat. Sci.
Aud., 6 p.m.)
MARIANNE AND JULIANNE (Margarethe von
Trotta, 1981)
A twist on the old standby of people with identical
backgrounds doing very different things. This looks
at two sisters in Germany, one of whom becomes a
journalist, the other a terrorist. German with
subititles. (Hill Street Cinema; 1429 Hill, 7 p.m. & 9 p.m.)
PLATINUM BLONDE (Frank Capra, 1931)
Jean Harlow and Loretta Young in a rarely seen
screwball comedy which chronicles the usual battle
between two people for the love of a third. (Alter-
native Action; MLB 4, 7:10 p.m.)
MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (Frank
Capra, 1939)
The Capra twin-bill concludes with a less rarely
seen film in which James Stewart gets sent to the
Senate and decides to exercise independence from
machine politics. (Alternative Action; MLB 4, 9:15
p.m.)
WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FAC-
TORY (Mel Stuart, 1971)
Oompa loompa loompa di doo for a few hours as
Gene Wilder takes a bunch of lucky kids on a tour of
his huge chocolate factory and watches them all
misbehave. More suited to the pre-college level.
(Michigan Theater Foundation; Michigan Theater, 3
p.m., 5 p.m. & 8 p.m.)
GREASE (Randal Kleiser, 1978)
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are the
stars of this adaptation of the Broadway musical.
Good music and a lively cast are the highlights of an
enjoyable few hours. Italian buffet included.
(University Club; U-Club,7p.m.)
RAINDROPS (Michael Hoffman and Harry
Reymon,1980)
The Third Reich in German Films continues with
one of the few films on the subject done from a
Jewish perspective. As Nazism gains sway in the
countryside, a family is forced to uproot itself. Ger-
man with subtitles. (Goethe Institute; Cinema
Guild; Ann Arbor Film Coop; Germanic Languages
and Literatured Dept., Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7:30p.m.)
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (Alfred Hitch-
cock, 1934)
Hltiock made two versions of this film about a
child being kidnapped to ensure the parents' silence
when they uncover an assassination plot. This first
version, with Peter Lorre, is considered the inferior
one. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 8:30 p.m.)

Daryl Hannah: 'Splash' plays Thursday
SABOTAGE (Alfred Hitchcock, 1936)
A Joseph Conrad novel is the source material for
some typical Hitchcock when a wife suspects her
husband is engaging in a few illegal things. Like
planting bombs. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 7 p.m.)
RASHOMON (Akira Kurosawa, 1950)
The second Academy Award winner by the direc-
tor this week. Four different versions emerge of a
rape and killing on a highway, and the differences in
perspective are most intriguing. Japanese with sub-
titles. (Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall,7 p.m., FREE)
DIE PATRIOTEN (Alexander Kluge, 1978-79)
An Ann Arbor Premiere from the Third Reich in
German Films. An experimental filmmaker
provides us with an experimental film. A teacher
looking for historical material puts all kinds of
various things together in an attempt to put Ger-
many in context. German with subtitles. (See Sun-
day's listing;'MLB3; 7:30 p.m.)
ACID RAIN: REQUIUM OR RECOVERY (National
Film Board of Canada, 1981)
A look at one of the more controversial subjects
these days which was one of the three Canadian films
which the Justice Department tried to ban by calling
them propaganda. (Ecology Center; Ann Arbor
Public Library, 7p.m,)
THE FOUNTAINHEAD (King Vidor,1949)
The Ayn Rand novel comes to the screen. Gary
Cooper is an architect who can never like his own
buildings and decides to destroy them. (Ann Arbor
Film Coop; Lorch Hall, 7 p.m. & 10 p.m.)
A CITY AT CHANDIGARAH (Alain Tanner, 1966)
And a special city it is. Le Corbusier, a French ar-
chitect, was asked to design it in the middle of the In-
dian countryside. He was able to put all of his ideas
into an actual form, and this looks at the results,
(Ann Arbor Film Coop; Lorch Hall, 9 p.m.)
