o A Street To Die ( 15) a (Bill Bennet. Australia. 1985) Chris Haywood. Jennifer Cluff. Peter Iiehir. 93 mins. Sydney. 1979. Vietnam vet Colin Turner moves into a War Service home and ascribes his rapidly deteriorating health to exposure in 1966to the chemical defoliant Agent Orange. lIis compensation claim against the authorities soon becomes a focus point for the hopes of his fellow veterans.
Sensitively handled drama- documcntary filmed on the actual locations of the events. which reveals Bill Bennett (whose excellent Backlash was screened at the 1986 Edinburgh Film Festival) as a film-maker with a keen eye for telling domestic detail and an ability to extract affectingly natural performances from his actors. A name to watch. Glasgow; GET 0 Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (PG) (Sidneyi. Furie. UK. 1987) Christopher Reeve. Gene Iiackman. Mariel Hemingway. Mark Pillow. 90mins.
Superman breaks with his father's instruction never to intercede in the destiny of Earth when he announces his intention to rid the planet of all nuclear weapons. iiowever. he has not reckoned on arch-enemy Lex Luthor and his latest ally— Nuclear Man.
Action-orientated adventure that sadly fails to raise the mediocre standard ofthe series.

0 That's Life ( 15) :5? (Blake Edwards. LS. 1986) Jack Lemmon. Julie Andrews. Sally Kellerman. 102 mins. Grouchy. hypochondriacal architect Lemmon faces up to his sixtieth birthday and the prospect of being a grandfather with characteristic desperation and ill-grace. Meanwhile his saintly singer wife undergoes a biopsy on a possible malignancy in her throat but keeps the worry from boorish hubby.
Co-written by Edwards‘ psychiatrist. co-starring Mrs Edwards and various
members of the Edwards and Lemmon clans this has been roundly chastised as fatally self-indulgent big-screen home movies. Glasgow: OFF
0 Three Amigos (PG) (John Landis. US. 1987) Steven Martin. Chevvy Chase. Martin Short. 105 mins. Dreadful comedy-musical-fiesta-dog with Martin and co searching for wit in old Mexico. Only two laughs apparently (count 'em). Steve. how could you do this? Glasgow; Cannon Clarkston Road. Salon. Strathclydc; Odeon Hamilton 0 Three Men and a Cradle (PG) a? (Corrine Serreau. France. 1985) Roland Giraud. Michel Boujenah. Andre Dussollier. 106 mins. Three middle-class male idlers find their existence turned upside down when they have to look after a child left ontheir doorstep. Initially struggling with the intricacies of baby care. theyeventually muddle on through and become quite attached to their charge. so much so that a harsh decision has to be made when the motherturns up...
Amiable role-reversal comedy. a huge success in both its native France and in the US. which relies heavily on engaging comic mugging and the cutsie factor ofthe bairn in question for much of itsappeal. Try the Coen's Raising Arisona for a much sappier variation on a theme. Glasgow: GET 0 Top Gun ( 15) (Tony Scott. US. 1986) Tom Cruise. Kelly McGillis. 1 10mins. Hunky pilot Cruise proves his worth on the ground and in the air. Some breathlessly effective aerial sequences in this patriotic barf-out bonanza. Glasgow; Cannon Clarkston Road 0 Witness ( 15) (Peter Weir. US. 1985) Harrison Ford. Kelly McGillis. Danny Glover. 112 mins. A young Amish boy isa witness to murder. The investigation leads a cop into a brush with another culture. a little romance to the sound of Sam Cook and the expected police corruption.
Atmospheric. impeccably acted and beautifully constructed. One of the great films ofthe Eighties. Glasgow; GF'T
