T H U R S D A Y T H U R S D A Y

T H U R S D A Y

A.E Or INNOCENCE Scorsese returns with an impassioned look into love
and lust in pre-depression New York. Dubbed by Daily critics as the
premiere film of the decade (as if that meant anything at all), the picture
bristles with steamy sex, without having to slap you in the face. At
Showcase: 1:00, 4:00, 7:10, 10:00, 12:40. At Ann Arbor 1&2, call for
showtimes.
Bmwox TALE Rodney Dangerfield, Bronx's most famous native son, sadly
joked last week that he was distraught that his best friend had run off with
his wife. "Now I have to find someone else to go fishing with," he reluc-
tantly conceded. Anyhow, DeNiro does double-duty, as both director and
star, in this gritty urban drama which is bound to be the sleeper of the year.
Sneak preview at Showcase: 7:45 Friday & Saturday only.
Coot. RUNNINGs Anne Rice may have some trouble with the casting of
Tom Cruise as the androgenous vampire in the upcoming "Interview With
The Vampire," but chances are that the better part of North America has
some trouble with John Candy as an ex-Olympian bobsledder hired to train
the now infamous 1988 Jamaican bobsled team. Sneak preview at Show-
case: 7:20 (Saturday only) & 12:35 (Sunday only).
GooD SoN Fortunately for 12-year-old star Mac Culkin, he isn't old
enough to buy a ticket for his miserable-looking movie. At Showcase: 1:20,
3:20, 5:30, 7:30, 9:30, 11:30.
MAuCE Alec Baldwin, in no huge break from real life, plays an asshole.
Sneak preview at Showcase: 7:30 (Saturday only).
THE PeonRm Former gridiron wizards Bo Schembechler and Don James
team up in this round table discussion concerning the methods and unique
styles of various college football program editors. At Showcase: 12:10,
2:35, 5:05, 7:40, 10:10, 12:35.
WARLoCK 2 Sadly the original "Warlock" was released on the same night
as the 1991 "Full House" cliffhanger. Even Siskel & Ebert, who had
planned to review the film last on one of their episodes, were unable to
publicly assess the picture when Roger sat on top of Gene during a dispute
over the re-release of "Bambi," causing the program to run over-schedule.
As a result, millions missed what was a truly a terrible film. At Showcase:
12:40, 3:05, 5:20, 7:50, 10:05, 12:15.

FRIDAY

p.m.

Macaulay Culkin stars in yet another dumb movie, "The Good Son."
FILMS HOLDING:
