o Ossesstone (PG) (Luchino Visconti. Italy. 1942) Clara Calamai. Massimo Girotti. 139 mins. This first screen version ofJames M. Cain‘s The Postman Always Rings Twice stands up remarkably well beside the two Hollywood versions. The film remains both an important milestone in the development ofthe Italian neo-realist school of the 1940s. and a brooding. powerful drama even forty years later. Glasgow; GFI‘
0 018110 (U) (Franco Zeffirelli. Italy. 1986) Placido Domingo. Katia Ricciarelli. Justino Diaz. 123 mins. Zeffirelli pulls out all the stops to inject some cinematic vigour into the stuffy climes of filmed opera. The result will probably offend the purists and is unlikely to win hordes offresh converts.
His version of the Verdi warbler is dished up with over-emphatic brio. lavish locations. unnecessary ﬂashbacks. the exclusion of Desdemona‘s Willow Song and a hint ofhomoeroticism. ‘Lungs’ Domingo gives his all. Edinburgh: Filmhouse o The Passion of Remembrance ( 15) a (Maureen Blackwood and Isaac Julien. Uk. 1986) Antonia Thomas. Carlton Chance. 8?. mins. An examination of the black experience in Britain. looking at issues of history. sexuality and gender. this remarkable film inverweaves a family drama with video excerpts documenting police harassment and raises the question of the way forward for black political activism.
Realising that issues of homosexuality and the problem of creating a feminine language are not confined to the white community. the film is a milestone in the portrayal ofblack lives in that it steps outside the frequently-trodden area ofpolice-related incidents to provide a richer overview on the black situation. expressed in a manner that encourages debate without lapsing into didacticism. Glasgow; GET 0 Peggy Sue Got Married ( 15) (Francis Coppola. US. 1986) Kathleen Turner. Nicolas Cage. Catherine Hicks. 103 mins. Light and likeable Coppola concoction in which the always magnificent Turner collapses at her high school class reunion and regains consciousness in 1959.
an entertaining. irresistibly sloppy romantic drama with a real regard for its characters and their modest preowupations.
Lothian; Regal. Strathclyde: Cannon Greenock. Cannon Kilmarnock
0 Playing for Keeps ( 15) (Bob and Harvey Weinstein. US. 1984) Daniel Jordano. Matthew Penn. Mary B. Ward. 106 mins. A group of recent high school graduates refuse to settle for dead end jobs and instead set about turning a dilapidated old
country house into a recreational centre for young people. despite the protests of the corrupt local council. Nauseatingly bright and breezy youthpic with musical interludes and wholehearted dedication to the American way. These youngsters seek a place where they can do aerobics. watch their MTV. and make a fast buck while they're at it. Has this anything to do with real life? I think we should be told. Glasgow; Cannon Clarkston Road. Cannon Sauchiehall Street. Cinema. Grosvenor. Lothian; Cannon. Strathclyde: Cannon Greenock. Cannon Kilmarnock. Kelburne. La Scala. Odeon Hamilton. Rialto o Rebel Without A Cause ( 15) (Nicholas Ray. US. 1955) Natalie Wood. James Dean. Sal Mineo. 111 mins. Moody, middle-class delinquent Dean is misunderstood by parents and peers alike but finds a sympathetic shoulder in pretty Wood. Seminal portrait of alienated adolescence bolstered by a strong supporting line-up and Dean‘s intense charisma. Glasgow; GET 0 Reuben, Reuben ( 15) (Robert Ellis Miller. US. 1982) Tom Conti. Kelly McGiIIis. Roberts Blossom. 101 mins. Conti in memorable form as a dissolute. womanising Celtic poet suddenly face to face with true love. A sexist but often very funny piece. Strathclyde; Haldane Film Society I The Right Stuff ( 15) (Philip Kaufman. US. 1983) Sam Shepard. Barbara Hershey. Dennis Ouaid. 193 mins. Exhilarating. panoramic paean ofcelebration to the heroes of the last frontier ofhuman endeavour — ﬂight. Winner ofa measly three Oscars this is an unmissable big screen experience. Edinburgh; Filmhouse 0 Rocky IV (PG) (Sylvester Stallone. US. 1985) Sylvester Stallone. Dolph Lundgren. 91 mins. East meets West in the boxing ring as southpaw slugger Rocky Balboa faces Soviet Superman Ivan Drago. Predictably patriotic pugilism. Edinburgh: Marco's Cinema. Strathclyde: ()deon Ayr 0 Room With A View (PG) (James Ivory. UK. 1985) Helena Bonham Carter. Maggie Smith. Denholm Elliott. 117 mins. Elegantly mounted with an agreeable lightness of touch. this is a near-perfect version of Forster‘s sunny comedy of manners that has been nominated for eight Oscars including Best Picture. Edinburgh; Dominion. Glasgow; GFT - o Romancing the Stone (PG) (Robert Zemeckis. US. 1984) Kathleen Turner. Michael Douglas. 105 mins. Retiring romantic novelist Turner is pitched into real high adventure in this appealing escapist fare. Glasgow; Odeon 0 Rumble Fish (18) (Francis Ford Coppola. US. 1983) Mickey Rourke. Matt Dillon. Dennis Hopper. 94 mins. Electrifying expressionist visuals grace an existentialist parable about the need to forge one's own identity and the alienation it can bring.
