THURSDAY T H U R S D A Y

BEFORE SUNRISE Sadly, after years of excessive drug use and repeated
listenings to "Frampton Comes Alive!" "Slacker" writer-director Richard
Linklater was just too dazed and confused to notice what a piece of crap,
glorified Lemonheads video of a film this is. With Ethan "Generation X"

Wayne Bobbit: Uncut." Sneak preview at Showcase, Saturday 8:00.
DEATH AND THE MAIDEN We're not even gonna mention the obvious O.J.
connection because that would be tasteless and this list is about class. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:35, 4:50, 7:25, 9:45, 12:00.
HIGHLANDER 3 Not to be confused with the earlier tour-de-forces "High-
lander" or "Highlander 2: Electric Boogaloo," this "Highlander," about a
shy, conscientious mountain shepard whose three favorite goats just don't
*understand the meaning of community will be shown as a double bill with

12:25.
DEMON KNIGHT Although rumored to be more horrifying than the Broadway
song and dance version of Stephen King's "Carrie," (an accomplishment
not to be overlooked), in actuality, this film version of "Tales From the
Crypt" is as lame as the TV show. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:10, 4:55, 7:45,
