Walk, Don't Run
(Charles Walters, 1966)
Lorch 7pm Japanese Studies/CG free
A remake of The More the Merrier,
Wall, Don't Run is Cary Grant's last
film as an actor. The usual Grant
.miability blends with humor to make
a most agreeable film.

Body Double
(Brian De Palma, 1984)
MLB4 7pm/DBL Med
Borrowing from several Hitchcock
films as well as many different film
,enres, De Palma once again explores
perverse sexuality.The plot is
successfully complicated, with an
emphasis on visuals rather than
dialogue. It's movies like these
endear De Palma to Pauline Kael.

Crime of Passion
(Ken Russell, 1984)
MLB4 9:15/DBL Med
With overly Freudian motivations,
Kathleen Russell stars in this film as
Joanne/China Blue, a fashion
designer moonlighting as a hooker
(fashion just doesn't pay like it used

es.
to). It's another film that inspired
heated controversy upon its release,
so you just gotta see it.

Foreign Correspondent
(Alfred Hitchcock, 1940)
AudA 7pm/DBL CG
It's only fitting on a night with two
Hitchcock-influenced films that there
should be one of the real thing. Joel
McCrea (Meredith's pop, of Petticoat
Junction idolatry) stars in the'title role
as an American reporter in London
caught in the middle of a Nazi spy
ring. You might recognize some of the
famous Hitchcock scenes.
" 0 S S * "
Our Man in Havana
(Carol Reed, 1%0)
AudA 9:15/DBL CG
Adapted by Graham Greene from his
novel, this satirical spy spoof stars
Alec Guinness as a vacuum cleaner
salesman who's recruited by the
British Foreign Office to become a
spy, after which they foolishly
become convinced he's a top-notch
secret agent. Cast also includes Burl
Ives, Maureen O'Hara, Noel Coward,
and Ernie Kovacs.
Sweetie
(Jane Campion, 1989)
MLB3 7:30 & 9:30 AAFC
The oddly vague narrative involves
two sisters, one thin and repressed,
the other fat and decadent without
one iota of shame. The characters are
pushed to extremes, but to brilliant
effect - even though you might not
identify with the characters
themselves, the themes that emerge

from their interactions will haunt you.
S A T U R D A Y
Autumn Sonata
(Ingmar Bergman, 1978)
MLB4 7:00,8:45 & 10:25 CG
This is the one Bergman film where
you won't mistakenly think you were
going to see an Ingrid Bergman film
- here you got 'em both. Bergman
walks in his own tradition with his
exploration of the female-female
relationship, and Sven Nykvist's
(most recently known for Crimes and
Misdemeanors) cinematography is
beautiful.
" " "ge " "
Caravaggio
(Derek Jarman, 1986)
AudA 7:30 & 9:15 AAFC
Visually stunning avant-garde film
about the 17th-century painter
Michelangelo Merisi, who
scandalized his contemporaries with
both the controversial nature of his
art, and his resistance to the social
mores of his time.
* "e"e S *
Saturday Night Fever
(John Badham, 1977)
MLB3 lOpm/DBL Med
Time to regress here, with one of the
biggest fashion mistakes a decade
ever committed. Tony Manero, here,
with a poster of Sly Stallone on his
wall and the de rigeur no-natural-
fibers-here suit on his bod. It's a
well acted and meaningful movie, but
we all know you really went for the
dancing.

Diner
(Barry Levinson, 1982)
Hillel 8:45 & 10:30 HSC
This charming, sometimes bleak
coming-of-age story provides debuts
for a number of actors who've gone on
to considerable fame, including
Mickey Rourke, Daniel Stern, Steve
Guttenberg, Kevin Bacon, and
Michael Tucker.
Ben-Hur
(William Wyler, 1959)
Mich 2:30 MTF
Twelve Oscars went to this epic set in
Palestine at the time of Christ. Chuck
Heston plays the Jewish prince Judah
Ben-Hur, a little guy who's loudly
opposed to Roman domination. He
loses his home, his family, his
freedom, but never his spunk. The
famous chariot race is visually
impressive and very realistic.
L'Avventura
(Michelangelo Antonioni, 1960)
AudA 7pm FVS free
This beautifully photographed
landmark of contemporary
filmmaking is an incisive study of
alienation in the modern world. When
a group of young people on a yachting
holiday go ashore, a woman
disappears, and her fiance and best
friend become romantically involved
while searching for her.

The Mahabharata
(Peter Brook, 1990)
Mich 7pm MTF
With a title meaning "the greatest
story of all time," it has to be good. A
100,000 stanza Sanskrit poem over
2000 years old, it's the nationat epic
of India, and the basis of all Hindu
culture. Thus, no plot summary is
going to do it justice. It's a long
movie, at 170 minutes (for you non-
math students, that's almost three
hours).
