FRIDAY

LOVE OF SUMAKO AND
ACTRESS (Kenji Mizoguchi,
1947) Lorch 7
The next installment in the
Japanese film festival has
Mizoguchi turning his trained eye
to the world of acting. A director
finds his dream actress to perfrom
the premier of Ibsen's A Doll
House to Japan, but of course,
things never work out as planned.
WOMEN OF THE NIGHT
(Kenji Mizoguchi, 1948) Lorch
8:45
This week's second feature in
the festival is a dark, yet socaially
important film about two sisters in
war-ravaged Japan who turn to
prostituition as the only way to
survive, but the world they discover
may make them think twice.

FRIDAY THE 13TH (Sean
Cunningham, 1980) Aud B 7 &
9:15
The slasher classic returns to
scare the socks off us. Back then,
before this turned into a weekly
film series, Jason was a young,
naive killer. Remember that
summer at Camp Crystal Lake
when Jason was just geting started
in the revenge business? No hocky
mask folks, see the real deal.
HARVEY (Henry Koster, 1950)
MLB 37:00
Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize
winning play adapted to this classic
film features one of Jimmy
Stewart's best performances as the
ever boozing Elwood P. Dowd
whose constant companion is a 6
foot plus rabbit named Harvey who
just happens to be invisible!

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
(Frank Capra, 1944) MLB 3 9:00
Joseph Ketterling's hilarious
play became a hilarious film. Cary
Grant stars as the drama critic who
discovers that his two aunts are
poisoning lonely gentlemen callers.
With vintage performances from the
sinister Peter Lorre and Raymond
Massey.
SATURDAY
LA PIRATE (Jacques Doillon,
1984) Lorch 7, 8:40, & 10:20
A French film that will leave
you bewiledered, perhaps. A lesbian
steals her lover back from the
woman's husband and the husband
hires "Number Five" to get them
back. Battle of wits ensues as spy
vs. spy leads to a manipulative
battle field of the mind.
MANHATTAN (Woody Allen,
1979) Mich Th. 7:15
Allen's follow up to Annie Hall

is a treat in itself. A-slice-of-life
comedy-romance beautifully illus-
trates a love affair with New York
City in black and white. Also
starring Diane Keaton and Mariel
Hemingway.
DO THE RIGHT THING
(Spike Lee, 1989) Mich. Th. 9:15
& 11:40
The controversial young, low-
budget filming director who took
the film world with She's Gotta
Have It is back. This time, Lee
makes his social and cultural
statements on racism and violence
in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant
neighborhood in a funny way.
ANDY WARHOL'S FLESH
(Paul Morrissey, 1968) Aud A 7 &
9
Expect the epitomy of weirdness
as you are catapulted into the seedy
and over sexed world of Warhol's
and Morrissey's New York for this
artsy porno. Rated X.

MR. BILL SHOW, PINK
PANTHER & BUGS BUNNY
FESTIVAL MLB 3 7, 8:45 &
10:30
From the sadistic Mr. Bill series
of Saturday Night Livee fame to
the devious and madcapped detective
work of the Panther to the old time
great Bugs cartoons - an evening
of cartoon magic to savor.
SUNDAY
MANHATTAN (Woody Allen,
1979) Mich. Th. 7:00
See Saturday's listing.
THE MEANING OF LIFE
(Terry Jones, 1983) Mich Th. 9:00
The Monty Python troupe doing
what they did best - exploring the
issues of life to death. See the
world's most obese man in a scene
that cannot be described to justice
and an elaborate production
sequence focusing on sperm. Not to
be missed.
