A Brazilian import which takes a critical look at
the country's military regime by looking at what one

Cinema; 1429 Hill, 7 p.m., 9:10 p.m.)
THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC (Carl T. Dreyer,
1928)
A silent look at the French martyr, burned at the
stake. Members of the cast include Maria Falconetti,
Michael Simon, and Antonin Artaud. (Cinema Guild;
Lorch Hall, 7 p.m.)
DAY OF WRATH (Carl T. Dreyer, 1943)
Denmark in 1623. A woman is accused of having
supernatural powers after a death she had wished for
takes place. She soon starts to believe her accusers
in this psychological movie. Danish with subtitles.
(Cinema Guild; Lorch Hall, 8:15p.m.)
THE WIZARD OF OZ (Victor Fleming, 1939)
Judy Garland is Dorothy, and she goes on a voyage
over the rainbow during a tornado and meets all kin-
ds of witches and munchkins, the scarecrow, tin
man, and cowardly lion. An all-time favorite that
always entertains. And let's not forget Toto. (Cinema
2; Aud. A, 7 p.m., 9 p.m.)
GORKY PARK (Michael Apted, 1983)
William Hurt is a Soviet policeman who starts in-
vestigating a case and uncovers a vast scheme to
smuggle sable pelts, led by Lee Marvin. While not a
bad movie by any stretch, nothing is all that great
about it, either, and it tends toward boring in spots.
(Mediatrics; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7 p.m., 9:10 p.m.)
THE DARK CRYSTAL (Jim Henson and Frank Oz,
1982)
Highly advanced puppets or muppets star in a less
advanced story, a typical quest film as good tries to
defeat bad. The artistic conception is quite good, but
the film inspires a certain detatchment and ends up
being dull. (Michigan Theater Foundation;
Michigan Theater, 3 p.m..5:30 p.m.. 8p.m.)

ROAD WARRIOR (George Miller, 1982)
Excellent timing as a different coop presents the
sequel to Mad Max this evening. Once again, Mel
Gibson roams the Australian outback. He tries to
save some people holed up in a refinery under attack.
(Alternative Action; MLB 3,7:30 p.m., 9:15 p.m.)
THE RULES OF THE GAME (Jean Renoir, 1939)
When first released, the French did not take much
of a liking to this movie. Not very surprising, as it
takes a less than favorable look at French society at
the start of World War II. French with subtitles.
(Cinema 2; Aud. A, 7 p.m.)
GRAND ILLUSION (Jean Renoir, 1937)
From a look at society to a look at war. A group of
diverse people put together in a POW camp find
themselves joined together by bonds deeper than the
ones dividing their nations. A very good ending.
French with subtitles. (Cinema 2; Aud. A, 9 p.m.)
MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (Roger Corman,
1964)
One of two Halloween-oriented twin-bills this
evening gets under way with one of the classics in
late-night horror. Vincent Price (who else) is the star
of a combination/adaptation of some Poe stories.
(Ann Arbor Film Coop; Nat. Sci. Aud., 7p.m.)
