FRIDAY

THE LIFE OF OHARU (Kenji
Mizoguchi, 1952) Lorch 7:00
The Japanese film festival con-
tinues with Mizoguchi's look back
at 17th century Japan. The perils of
Ohara are chronicled as she loses
her true love and suffers a seem-
ingly endless series of misfortunes
and setbacks.
HAROLD AND MAUDE (Hal
Ashby, 1971) Mich Th. 7:30 &
11:40
It has achieved full cult status

and deservedly so. Bud Cort and
Ruth Gordon star in this incredible
psychological study of two very dif-
ferent people. Harold (Cort) is a
teenager who thinks of little else
than suicide and shocking his
mother. Maude (Gordon) is the old
women who lives in the fantasy
world of her youth. A very political
and intelligent film with a memo-
rable score from Cat Stevens.
DEAD POETS SOCIETY (Peter
Weir, 1989) Mich Th. 9:15
One of last summer's biggest
hits was a low keyed introspective
film. Robin Williams stars as Pro-

fessor Keating, a new instructor at
an exclusive New England boys
prep school who gives his boys a
lot more than what they bargained
for.
CREEPSHOW (George Romero,
1982) MLB 3 7:00
An innovative comic book film
from the creepy mind of Romero.
Shocking, disgusting, disturbing,
humorous, appalling, and just plain
gross. Five "fantastic tales" told
with a variety of stars including
Andrienne Barbeau and Leslie Niel-
son.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING
DEAD (George Romero, 1968)
MLB 3 9:30
This is a true terror. Romero's
first horror feature is a classic.
Seven people barricade themselves
in a farmhouse as flesh-eating zom-
bies roam outside. Not to be seen
alone, this one will scare the dick-
ens out of you.
REPO MAN (Alex Cox, 1984)
Aud A 7:00 & 9:15
Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean
Stanton star in this instant cult fa-
vorite. A new wave punk gets a job
repossessing cars. Social satire and
science fiction mix to propel this
film. Stanton is excellent as the ca-
reer repo man who shows young
Emilio the ropes.

SATURDAY
LA VIE DE FAMILLE (Jacques
Doillon, 1985) Lorch 7:00 & 9:00
A divorced man's ex-wife's vio-
lent behavior hinders their relation-
ship he tries to develop with his
daughter. Sounds like Mom mie
Dearest - French style. French
with subtitles for those of you that
don't speak French.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING
DEAD (George Romero, 1968)
MLB 3 7:00 & 10:00
See Friday's listing if you like
pasta.

Gasnier, 1936) MLB 3 8:45
