Dick Tracy
(Warren Beatty, 1990)
Mich 7pm MTF
A true testament to the potential of
advertising. If you don't know what
this comic book extravaganza's about
by now, who can help you?
My Geisha
(Jack Cardiff, 1962)
Lorch 7pm Japanese Studies/CG

Shirley MacLaine and Yves Montand
play a movie actress and her director
husband who fight over whether or
not she should star in his next film.
Sweet Movie
(Dusan Makejav, 1975)
AudC 7pm, 8:45 & 10:30 AAFC
This powerful X-rated X-ploration of
sex, rebellion and liberation will
shock some viewers and titillate
others. Its star sued the director for
making her do "degrading" things
(like bathing in chocolate - sounds
OK to me).
The Ladykillers
(Alexander Mackendrick, 1955)
A comic gem. This droll black
comedy revolves around a gang of
dunderhead crooks, led by the
inimitable Alec Guinness, who meet
their match in a sly, seemingly
harmless little old lady.

Arsenic and Old Lace

sane drama critic with a wild family in

Joseph Kesselring's hit play.

The Unbelievable Truth

explode any minute. Her nihilistic

Josh, a mysterious ex-con.

Stop Making Sense
(Jonathon Demme, 1984)
Mich 11pm MTF
One of the only movies that's perfect
for midnight viewing without a
following of fad-grabbers, Satan
worshippers, or people who dance in
black bras, Stop MakingSense is
infused with the peculiarbut
contagious energy of David Byrne
and The Talking Heads.

The Elephant Man
(David Lynch, 1980)
MLB4 7:30 & 9:45 AAFC
One of Lynch's two ventures into
films that weren't his own unique
vision (the other was Dune), The
E/ephant Man is actually deeply
moving without being quite as weird
as you'd expect of the Lynch-man.
Play it Again, Sam
