R U N
AMADEUS
Director Milos Forman's idea of depicting Mozart
as a pop star is a clever premise, but the screenplay
never pans out and what is meant to be irreverance
is merely irrelevance. In the end the film ends up
totemizing Mozart with all the same excessive and
pompous empty praise it originally sets out to super-
sede. You can, if you want, just close your eyes and
enjoy the score. 8:45 at the Movies as Briarwood,
Briarwood mall.
BEVERLY HILLS COP
Eddie Murphy goes through his usual fast jiving,
smart ass routines (albeit a little more
whitewashed) in a comedy/thriller about a Detroit
police detective who goes to California in search of
his friend's murderer. This is clearly Murphy's
vehicle, an open forum for him to improvise in front
of the camera while the rest of the cast just stands
there and plays it straight. Murphy's antics are
lowbrow but his naturally likable presence and fast
timing make for some easy, lightweight giggles,
though you're always very conscious how shabbily
slapped together the whole movie is. 7:00 and 9:30 at
the Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall.
THE BREAKFAST CLUB
Writer-director John Hughes (Sixteen Candles)
takes a rather bleak look at coming of age in modern
suburbia. The film is about five kids locked together
in their high school library on a Saturday afternoon
detention. It starts out as a sit-com, but gradually the
kids drop their guards and begin to explore each
others mutual fears and prejudices. To Hughes, and
the kids in the film, adolescence is eternal hell, -
they're oppressed by their parents, their teachers,
and most of all by their own peers. Hughes digs up a

ters so stero tv , Ycd t v ' SJUVC sy ones
feelings to explore. A flawed but still strangely com-
pelling film. At the State Theater, 231 State St.; 662-
6264.
'THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN
Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn play two American
teenagers involved in an intricate scheme to sell
government secrets to the, KGB. Based on a true
story. At the Campus Theater, 1214S. University.
FANTASIA
Technically impressive, but devoid of any
brilliance. this rerelease print has been slightly
edited, dropping out some of the annoyingly inane
narration, and features a newly recorded, but
distractingly loud digital soundtrack. At the State
Theater, 231S. State.
FAST FORWARD
Another "new musical", this one concerns a group
of teenage dancers from Sandusky, Ohio who travel
to New York to participate in a national talent con-
test. Directed by Sidney Poitier (Stir Crazy, Hanky
Panky) and univiewed at presstime. At the Fox
village Theater, 375 N. Maple. 769-1300.
THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY
An African bushman sees an empty Coke bottle
tossed out of a passing airplane fall to earth at his
feet, and assuming it to be the lost property of the
gods, decides to go about returning it. This African
import is technically very crude, but is the most
ingeniously funny and charming comic gem since
Woody Allen's early features. Pure, undiluted
laughs, a very rare and special treat whose growing
cult popularity is easily understandable. 7:10 and
9:30, at the Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall.
HEAVEN HELP US
Yet another coming of age comedy set in the six-
ties, this one situated in a parochial school. Features
a cast of young unknows but with cameos by Donald

auteriand, John Heard, and Wallace Shawn. At the
Fox village Theater, 375 N. Maple. 769-1300.
THE KILLING FIELDS
Unfocused but at times very powerful film about a
New York Times correspondent (played by Sam
Waterson) and his Cambodian assistant Haing S.
Ngor) who are trapped in Cambodia during the Kh-
mer Rouge's genocidal revolution of 1975. For his fir-
st feature, director Roland Joffe, keeps a clean, tight
control over each individual secenes, but lacks a
crucial overall sense for structure and the film
flounders toward the end. Still, it's a very worth-
while, important film. Ann Arbor Theater, 210 S. Fif-
th Ave.
MARTIN'S DAY
No information available at presstime. At the
Movies at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall; 769-8780.
THE MEAN SEASON
Murder mystery about a newspaper reporter
(Kurt Russell) who becomes entwined with a psycho-
killer. Our, own Joshua Bilmes called it "...far too
predictable" and advises us all to avoid it. Directed
by Phillip Borsos The Grey Fox and also starring
Mariel Hemingway. At the Fox Village Theater, 375
N. Maple; 769-1300.
MICKI & MAUDE
Only Blake Edwards could conceive of polygamy
as suitable material for a feature comedy, and only
Dudley Moore could be hustled into starring in it..
7:00 and 9:45 at the Fox village Theater, 375 N.
Maple.
MISCHIEF
Comedy about a shy boy's coming of age in a small
Midwestern town during the fifties. At the Fox

THE DESK SET (Walter Lang, 1957)
The last day of February has some films which are
definitely not showing for the last time. The first of
the campus favorites is another Hepburn-Tracy
collaboration, and it plays often enough that I can
write a blurb for it in my sleep. Hepburn runs a
research department, and Tracy wishes to automate
it against her wishes. This, too, is comedy. (Ann Ar-

MY MAN GODFREY (Gregory LaCava, 1936)
Less regular than the evening's other two movies.
Screwball comedy is the genre as Carole Lombard

is played by William Powell. (Ann Arbor Film Coop;

CAT PEOPLE (Paul Schrader, 1982)
This is the other regular movie that I can describe
in my sleep. Nastassia Kinski discovers the powers
that lurk in her family's genes which enable her to
turn into a cat. Ed Begley joins Malcolm McDowell
for some of the feline goings-on. (Michigan Theater

TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (James Brooks, 1983)
The month which will see the 1984 Oscars handed
out starts with the Best Picture of 1983. Shirley
MacLaine is mother to Debra Winger, and the two
have quite a relationship. She is also lover of Jack
Nicholson, and they have quite a relationship. Sniffle
and laugh away during this classic crowd pleaser.

THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY (Alfred Hitchcock,

A Shirley MacLaine who looks very different than

different than he does now in a wonderful black
comedy about a corpse that keeps getting buried and
unburied. Highly recommended. (Cinema Guild;
