Old issues, new diversity' (cover story)
Clarence Thomas and other 'Black Conservatives' do not enjoy much
support from fellow Blacks, but their new prominence may symbolize
the renewal of an old debate on how to solve the problems facing the
Black community. See Page 6
Also:
Columns
Jesse Walker had time for just one more column before graduating
later this month. That he chose to write about television and William
Kennedy Smith must be significant; that he's on page 4 is
meaningless. Jonathan Chait, shoved all the way back to page 8, will
still be here when you get back from winter break
Cartoons
Subtly positioned amidst the Weekend List, Weekend's cartoon
triumvirs vie for supremacy in the hearts of Michigan Funnies Fans.
The Weekend List
Our marketing surveys have shown that more people read the
Weekend List than any other part of Weekend. We're not sure
whether to laugh or cry.

The Addams Family (PG-13)
It's the first smash hit of the Christmas season -
and its also depressingly unfunny. Just say no. (At
Showcase: 12:15pm, 12:45, 235,2:50,4:45,
5:05, 7:15, 7:40, 9:40, 9:55,11:50,12:20 am; at

they're not yas charming. Imagine $5.75 down
the tubes. (At Sh case:12:50, 2:55,4:50; at Fox
Village: 5 & 7)
An American Tail 2: Fievel Goes West (G)
The latest animated feature from Spielberg's
Disney wanna-be department is no Beauty, but it's
diverting nonetheless. With the voices of John
Cleese, James Stewart, and, of course, Dom
DeLuise. (At Showcase: 12:10, 1:40, 3:10, 4:40,
6:10; at Briarwood:10, 11:45, 1:30, 3:15, 5:05)
" . * .. -
An Angel at My Table (R)
Jane Campion (Sweete) sure can compose cool
shots, but her adaptation of author Janet Frame's
biography is overlong and puzzlingly unrevealing.
(At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: Sat/Sun/Tues: 1, 4, 7, 9:45;
all week: 4, 7, 9:45)
Beauty and the Beast (G)
Disney would like to pass off their latest as a Best
Picture nominee, and they're not that far off.
First-rate songs, story and animation put this one
up there with Cruella de Ville. And no one spits like
Gaston. (At Briarwood: 10, 11, 12,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
7, 8,9,10,11:45; note:no 7:00 show Saturday

The Butcher's Wife (PG-13)
Ultrahip local star Jeff Daniels and a blonde Demi
Moore star in a delightful supernatural romantic
comedy, also with the great Mary Steenburgen.
(At Fox Village: 9:30)
. . . . . .

Cape Fear (R)
Here it is, the new thriller from the great
American director Martin Scorsese, with the
powerhouse cast of DeNiro, Nolte and Lange. If you
ask us, its mediocre... no, on second thought, it's
brilliant.,.no, wait, it sucks... ah, go and decide for
yourself. (At Showcase: 12 pm, 12:55, 2:30,4, 5,
7:10, 7:35, 9:45,10:10, 12:10 am, 12'30; at Fox

The Fisher King (R)
Director Terry Gilliam (Brazil) sells out and makes
a hit film with this redemption drama featuring
Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges. (At Fox Village:

Bette Midler sings and James Caan... well, James
Caan watches Midler sing in Mark Rydell's drama
with music. (At Showcase: 1, 4, 7, 10; at
Briarwood: 10, 1, 4, 7, 9:45, 12:20)
* . .4 *
Franide and Johnny (R)
Most people blew this film off, but Garry
Marshall's latest romantic comedy is truly one of
the best films of the year. In a perfect world,
Michelle Pfeiffer would win an Oscar. (At Fox
Village: 4:45, 7, 9:30)
. . . . .
The Last Boy Scout (R)
A sneak preview of the new Bruce Willis and Damon
Wayans action flick. This buddy movie thing has
gone way too far. (At Showcase: Saturday at 7:50
only)
Little Man Tate (PG)
Jodie Fosters directorial debut is an
unexceptional, sappy Hollywood drama about a 7-
year-old genius caught between his dim mother and
an evil psychologist. (At Showcase: 12:35, 2:45,
4:55, 7:45, 9:55, 12; note: no 7:45 show Saturday
