Roger & Me
Creator Michael Moore is giving
$25,000 of his film's profits to the
four Flint, Michigan families that
were evicted while his camera
was running on the underbelly of
the town General Motors built. Is
it a token sum from a malicious
artist or a tender gesture from a
native son? Decide for yourself.
(At Showcase -12:30, 2:45, 5:05,
7:20,9:50, 12:00)
Stanley and Iris
Stanley (Robert DeNiro) can't

Tango & Cash
Sylvester Stallone (who has sung
only once in his film career in

cop-buddy movie. Neither sings.
(At Showcase --3:10,9:55, 11:50)
Tremors

Bacon in which four gigantic

FRIDAY
WR: Mysteries of the
Organism
(Dusan Makavejev, 1971)
Aud A, 7pm and I0pm/DBL
AAFC
Now, that's organism, mind you,
not that other word. Rollicking
film of the erotic and politically
provocative sort that advocates
Erotic Socialism as panacea for all
the world's ills. E.S. proposes sex
as an idealogical imperative for
liberation, not to mention that it's
fun ,too. Sounds like a Lysistrata
of the '70s.
Man is Not a Bird
(Dusan Makavejev, 1971)
Aud A, 8:30pm/DBL AAFC
By the man claimed to be Eastern
Europe's most important
filmmaker, his first film takes
place in a bleak Yugoslavian town
made to seem fantastical and
dreamlike. Called "poetic" by
Vincent Canby, within a
Communist context this film
follows the love affair between a
middle-aged factory worker and a
beautiful older woman..
Suzanne Suzanne & Older
Women in Love
(Camille Billips, 1983)
Lorch, 7pm FVS Free
Third in the Black Filmmakers
Series, this film is accompanied
by an appearance from the
director herself. Both films were
inspired by Billops' own family,
the first about her niece's battle
with drug abuse and the second
concerning her aunt's affair with
younger men.
M
(Fritz Lang, 1930)
MLB 3, 7pm/DBL CG
German Expressionist filmmaker
Lang makes his sound debut with
Peter Lorre as M, in Lorre's first-
time ever screen appearance. M is
possibly cinema's first sexual
deviate, so chalk this one up as a
festival of firsts. M plays a sweaty,
plump murderer of little girls,
who thinks everybody's after him.
They really are. M's paranoia
suggests the horror of Nazi-ism to
come.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
(Victor Fleming, 1941)
MLB 3, 9pm/DBL CG
Robert Louis Stevenson's

romance-oops, horror novel of the
mind with one added attraction:
Ivy, Hyde's love interest, played
by Ingrid Bergman. Those of you
who liked Dead Ringers might
like to check out the most original
Doppleganger ever.
2001: A Space Odyssey
(Stanley Kubrick, 1968)
Mich, 7pm & 11:40pm MTF
Will peoplekind outgrow the
machines, or be drawn beyond
them by some cosmic awareness?
Did we evolve into tool-using
mammals by hitting each other
over the heads? Clue: the
monoliths may merely be road
markers.
Moonstruck
(Norman Jewison, 1987)
MLB 4, 8pm & 10pm Med
"When the moon hits your eye,
like a big pizza pie-that's amore!"
Cher and Nicholas Cage make
the unlikely couple in this
wonderful balance between
comedy and romance, jokes and
sap. If you want something to put
you in a non-drug-induced great
mood...
AMy heSeason
(Euzhan Palcy, 1989)
Mich, 9:30pm MTF
Donald Sutherland, Susan
Sarandon, Zakes Mokae, and
Marion Brando star in this
disturbing and powerful film
about South African apartheid in
1976. The plot focuses on a
private investigation of police
brutality and murder.
SATURDAY
Touch of Evil
(Orson Welles, 1958)
Aud A, 7pmIDBL CG
Welles got his long-awaited
chance to direct again with this
film-noir masterpiece that
contains some of the best visual
work of his career. Welles himself
plays a detective investigating the
murder of an American bigwig
and his mistress. With Janet
Leigh, Dennis Weaver, and Zsa
Zsa Gabor.
The Third Man
(Carol Reed, 1949)
Aud A, 9pm/DBL CG
With a screenplay by Graham
Greene, The Third Man follows
an American writer of pulp
westerns through post-war Vienna
as he investigates the murder of a
friend, Harry Lime (Orson
Welles). Supposed to be witty and

suspenseful, a classic of British
cinema.
Made in China
(Lisa Hsia, 1986)
The Fall of the I-Hotel
(Curtis Choy, 1983)
Illusory Thoughts
(Patrick Chu, 1987)
Lorch, 7pm UMASC Free
All three films are Ann Arbor
premieres, the third week of
Collage: An Asian American Film
Series. Made in China is an
autobiographical journey into self-
awareness, as Chinese-American
Lisa Hsia goes back to China to
search for her roots. The Fall of the
I-Hotelcaptures the eviction of
Filipino workers in SF from low-
cost housing and its surrounding
protests. Illusory thoughts depictgs
a menage a trois situation, using
stunning dance and music to
illustrate the Asian -American
experience of straddling two
cultures, fusing Asian and
Western values.
Sammy and Rosie Get Laid
(Stephen Frears, 1987)
Hillel, 7pm & 9pm HSC
Sammy and Rosie pass their
mundane lives in a neighborhood
of London on the edge of
anarchy, a far cry from the
monumentalized Thames views
of travel brochures. The director
of My Beautiful Laundrette
recreates a similar feeling of
despair among the British lower
classes, but with very little hope
or comedy. Sammy and Rosie do
get laid, and not only to each
other.
Terms of Endearment
(James L. Brooks, 1983)
MLB 3, 7:15/DBL Med
Best picture of 1983 with Oscars
for the stars, Jack Nicholson and
Shirley MacLaine to boot. Funny
relationship between mother and
daughter as it develops over a few
years, with Maclaine even more
crotchety than in Steel/Magnolias.
("I've just been in a bad mood for
40 years!") Bring lots of kleenex,
or a sleeve that doesn't matter.
Beaches
(Garry Marshall, 1988)
MLB 3, 9:30/DBL Med
Okay, now I see why they put
these two together. It's a kleenex
conspiracy. Kleenex and Visine
will be on hand after the movie to
examine the psychological
implications of crying in public.
Beaches, of course, is the friend-
friend (as opposed to mother-

daughter) tear-jerker with Bette
Midler and Barbara Hershey. One
dies.
Pandora's Box
(G.W. Pabst, 1928)
MLB 4, 7:30/DBL AAFC
Starring Louise Brooks, cult
worship icon, Pandora's Box has
been praised as a masterpiece of
the silent era. The story follows
Lulu, a femme fatale (literally)
who oozes sensuality and causes
the weak men around her to self-
destruct. Notable is the
combination of German
Expressionism and the frank
depiction of sexuality.
The film will be followed by a
discussion on Louise Brooks
The Devil is a Woman
(Joseph Von Sternberg, 1935)
MLB 4, 9:45/DBL AAFC
Von Sternberg escapes
convention in what would be his
last film with Marlene Dietrich,
creating an extreme exercise in
style. Critics call this the most
beautiful film ever made, with its
overwhelmingly intense pictorial
beauty. Dietrich's femme fatale
induces men to destory
themselves for her in 19th
century Spain.
SUNDAY
The Spoilers
Berkshire Hilton, 3pm SFS
Featuring the full length original
film The Spoilers (Colin
Campbell, 1914), starring William
Farnum and Tom Santschi.
Preceded by two short subjects
plus two early bird shorts.
TheGrecaMcGinty
(Preston Sturges, 1940)
Lorch, 7pm, FVS Free
In this fast-paced satire of the
American political corruption,
which won director Preston
Sturges an Adademy Award for
the script, a hobo and a crook
have a hectic political career.
Preceded by Robert Benchley's
AdademyAward winning short,
How to Sleep.
