better show. At Showcase: 12:20, 2:30, 4:40, 7:15, 9:25, 11:30.

FILMS HOLD I NG:
An O 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 Showcase: 1:00, 4:00,
7:00, 9:50, 12:30. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:50.
BSowx TALE DeNiro's directorial debut was embraced by the critics, but has
truggled to find an audience of its own. At Showcase: 7:10, 9:40, 12:10.
IpO RUNNINGS 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.
DEuowuoN MAN Rocky Balboa's latest contribution to art house cinema
also stars peroxide warrior Willie "Mays" Hayes. Hayes may run like Mays,
but he acts like shit. At Showcase: 12:30, 3:00, 5:25, 7:50, 9:45, 10:20,
on LonE Oa MoNEY Hi, I'm Tina Yothers, I'll work for food. With
Michael J. Fox and "Scent of a Woman's" Gabrielle Anwar. At Showcase:
TOE FkwmvE The best film of the summer is also the best film of the fall.
At Showcase: 2:00,9:10, 12:00.
GETTYsoURe Historical sap from Ted Turner. Only Jeff Daniels shines. It is
a sad commentary on the state of American creative juices when filmmakers
can strip every possible intelligent theme from such an obviously auspicious
idea. At Showcase: 1:20, 7:00.
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: 1:00,
3:15, 5:10, 7:20, 9:20, 11:15.
TOE Joy LuCK CLUB 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. At
Showcase: 12:00, 2:20, 4:45, 7:30, 9:50, 12:10.
Mm. Jow Maybe it was cute in "Prince of Tides," but Richard Gere's
Vtest project is the fourth recent picture which glorifies therapist-patient
affairs. Such relationships undermine the role of psychiatrists and make a
mockery out of mental illness. Read Freud, boycott Mr. Jones. At Show-
case: 12:15, 2:40, 5:10, 7:45, 10:10, 12:25.
Ma. NAww Eight years after CBS demoted America's most irate dry
cleaner to re-run heaven, George Jefferson has returned with yet another
spin-off of "All In The Family." Also stars Hulk Hogan in a tutu. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:10, 7:45, 10:20, 12:40.
