I The Untouchables (15) (Brian De Palma, US, 1987) Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Robert De Niro. 119 mins. Chicago during Prohibition is a city in the pocket of bloated all-powerful gangster Al Capone but youthful, naive treasury ofﬁcer Eliot Ness, inspired by the true grit of Connery‘s over-the-hill Irish cop, forms an elite squad of incorruptible ofﬁcers who vow to put him behind bars or see him in hell ﬁrst.
A blood-drenched morality tale on a grand Shakespearean scale, The Untouchables is a film with the look and feel of greatness in every myth-celebrating frame.

I Up In Smoke (18) (Lou Adler, US, 1978) Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, Stacy Keach. 86 mins. Cheech and Chong made their movie debut in this dopey comedy about two guys in search of some good grass. Ten years on they still remain an acquired taste. Glasgow; Grosvenor

mid-505, a hopeless morphine addict. Edinburgh; Cameo
I The Wanton ( 18) (Walter Hill, US. 1979) Michael Beck, James Remar. 90 mins. Hill's Sledgehammer technique was at its most effective in this violent, visceral, fastopaeed saga of a New York gang who have to traverse the turf of a deadly rival to return to home base. Glasgow; GFT
I Who's That Old? (PG) (James Foley. US, 1987) Madonna, Grifﬁn Dunne, John Mills. 97 mins. Plodding screwball comedy with Miss M as a dippy parolee determined to clear name, and Dunne in familiar guise as the yuppie bridegroom assigned to ensure she leaves town but charmed into assisting her quest.
