S AT U RDA Y
Sly Stallone demonstrates the power of Krazy-glue in "Demolition Man."
Afk OF 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 seamy sex, without having to slap you in the face. At Show-
case: 1:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:50, 12:30. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:00, 4:00, 7:00,
BRoNx TALi 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.
At Showcase: 1:15, 4:15, 7:15, 10:00, 12:25.
COOL RUNNING. Anne Rice may have some trouble with the casting of
Tom Cruise as the androgynous 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. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:25,
4:35, 7:05, 9:15, 11:20.

THE FumwE Best film of the summer. At Showcase: 3:50, 7:10, 9:55,
12:30 (except Saturday). Saturday showtimes: 3:10, 9:25, 12:10.
Goo 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:
12:30,2:40,5:00,7:20, 9:20, 11:15.
THE JoY Luck Cum This film, based on Amy Tan's utterly unintelligent
novel, is an affront to every talented writer who can't get published. At
Showcase: 12:40,3:40,7:10, 10:00, 12:35. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:00,4:00,
MAuCE Alec Baldwin, in no huge break from real life, plays an asshole.
