The Hunt for Red October
Sean Connery, a Soviet captain,
hijacks his own submarine and
heads for the U.S. with the whole
world in pursuit. Problem is, the
sub has a new stealth device
which makes it impossible to
track (if the film is like Tom
Clancy's novel, they could always
use a bad-dialogue-seeking
device). (At Briarwood -11:00,
