Wings of Desire
(Wim Wonders, 1988)
MLB3 7:00&9:30 CG
A visually poetic film where angels
wander through Berlin, commenting
on humanity yet never being able to
participate in it until... Impressed
many to call it the best film of 1988.
What's Up, Tiger Lily?
(Woody Allen, 1%6)
Lorch 7:00 Japanese studies/CGfre
A Japanese B-movie which Woody re-
dubbed into a satirical spy film. The
humor is all in Woody's dubbing,
complete with lips moving long after
the voice finishes, but it's arguable
whether this one joke can sustain
itself for 80 minutes.

New York's most powerful clan.

AudA 7:30/DBL AAFC
Agruesome and lurid film about
inmates at a French insane asylum
who stage a play under the direction
of the Marquis de Sade. A good
movie to cuddle with a date and hold
their hand.
Fellini Satyricon
(Frederico Fellini, 1970)
AudA 9:30/DBL AAFC
Full of violence and debauchery,
Fellini's vision of a pre-Christian

our post-Christian world in an
unflattering manner. A good movie to
