remains interesting for the odd incidental detail. Glasgow; GFT 0 The Man With Two Brain: ( 15 ) (Carl
Reiner. US. 1983) Steve Martin. Kathleen Turner, David Warner. 93 mins. Delightfully zany Martin-Reiner ramp in which the great man plays a brilliant brain surgeon driven to the depths of despair when he weds Turner. a man-hungry murderess with a penchant for driving elderly husbands to early graves and pocketing their legacies. Strongly
recommended. Glasgow; Grosvenor - Marie (15) (Roger Donaldson. us. i 1985) Sissy Spacek. JeffDaniels. I Fred Thompson. 112 mins. Marie Ragghianti (Spacek). a Georgia housewife and mother of three. ' leaves her husband and works her | way through college. After , graduating she manages to get a job i in the Tennessee parole commission. where she soon comes to suspect corruption on a massive scale involving the State Governor. Her fight to bring misconduct to light proves to be not without its personal dangers.
The events are all the more incredible for being true. and director Donaldson. cinematographer Chris Menges. and the redoubtable Spacek imbue the proceedings with a cutting documentary edge which renders them all the more gripping. A film of integrity and emotional power. quite unaccountably a box-office loser. See it. Edinburgh; Filmhouse
