Splendid update of Double Indemnity with a drenchingly sweaty atmosphere (the sex has a lot to do with it) and a script that leaves teethmarks. Edinburgh: EUFS 0 Broadway Danny Rose (PG) (Woody Allen. US. 198-1) Woody Allen. Mia Farrow. Milton Berle. 8-1 mins. Danny Rose is one of life‘s losers; a small-time agent for no-hope artists who run from his management at the slightest whiff of acclaim. Opportunity knocks with a {UNIV singer Glasgow; (irosvenor 0 Carmen (PG) (Francesco Rosi. France-Italy. 198-1) Julia Migenes-Johnson. Placido Domingo. Ruggero Raimondi. 152 mins.

A stranger arrives in Eve‘s bar and before long is embroiled in a shifting relationship with the proprietress and another woman. a radio agony aunt. Former Altman collaborator Alan Rudolph‘s film. with its studio sets and deliciously improbable narrative. seems to linger between fantasy and reality as it teases and surprises the viewer. Edinburgh; AUFS o The Cheviot, The Stag, and the Black, Black Oil ('I'V) (John Mackenzie. UK. 1974) 90 mins. Celebrated BBC (London) version ofJohn McGrath‘s radical play that humorously and insightfully detonates a host of Scotch Myths. See John McGrath Feature.

A former journalist investigates the murder of her dentist and is intrigued by a list of extra-molar activities that included trading in pornography and providing a stud service for his affluent suburban clientele. Reputedly a mundane whodunnit from the once reliable Perry that offers little to distinguish it from its racey. airport-bestseller origins. Glasgow; GFI 0 Day for Night (PG) (Francois 'I'ruffault. France. 1973) Jacqueline Bisset. Jean-Pierre Leaud. 116 mins. Director 'I‘ruffault plays a director going through a particularly troubled shoot in this affectionate portrayal of the film-making process.

Christopher Malavoy. 101 mins. Smart thriller redolent of The Draugiflsman's Contract but an aura ofclinical calculation detracts from its full impact.

Berryman. Louise Portal. 101 mins. lfthe only ‘safe' sex left is the purely verbal then this non-stop talking shop must be the safest film ever made. Eight beings. four per sex. eat. drink. work-out and talk endlessly about their sexual hang-ups. fears and frustrations.

A Fleet Street hack stumbles onto a far-reaching conspiracy of murder and deceit that stretches to the heart of the Government. Incisive political drama both stimulating and entertaining.

Lo. the President‘s plane crashes plop in the middle of it and daring. dashing Snake Plissken (Russell) has to extricate him front a potentiallysticky situation.
