I Too Beautiful For You Trop Belle Pour Toi(15) ﬁ (Bertrand Blier. France. 1989) Gerard Depardieu. Josiane Belasko. 91 mins. Intense study of passion and marital infidelity as car dealer Blier finds himself much less attracted to his stunning wife than plain and plump secretary Belasko. who nevertheless turns out to be both
sweet and sensual. With customary bravado Blier turns domestic cliche on its head. Central: MacRobert Arts Centre. I Track 29 ( 18) (Nic Roeg. UK. 1988) Theresa Russell. Gary Oldman. Christopher Lloyd. 90mins. Bored Amerimn housewife Russell has a lonely marriage with eccentric surgeon Lloyd. who devotes more time to his train set than his spouse. When Oldman turns up. she wonders if he is her long-lost son from a brutal teenage sexual encounter. Or is he just the product of her frustrated imagination? Brash psychodrama which doesn't really go anywhere despite abundant visual and verbal trickery and the artistic cred ofdirector Rocg and writer Dennis Potter. Coming from these two major talents. this is a profound disappointment. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Tucker: The Man And His Dream (PG) (Francis Coppola. US. l988)JeffBridges. Martin Landau. Joan Allen. ll0mins. Coppola's best film in years charts the rise and fall of Preston Tucker. a naive but ingenious engineer w ho in 1948 produced a car so technically advanced that it scared the Detroit majors into action. Through political contacts. they trumped up a series of fraud charges that were todissolve Tucker‘s dream of affordable. safe motoring. Coppola at last re-unites his stylish technique with a grasp ofnarrative control in a manner that brings back memories of the great I lollywood productions. Edinburgh University Film Society.
I Tumerand Hooch (PG) (Roger Spottiswoode. US. 1989) Tom Hanks. Beazley. Mare Winningham. 108 mins. Scott Turner (I lanks) is an immaculate cop in every sense — obsessively clean and cfficent in all walks oflife. L'ntil. thatis. he inherits Hooch the pooch. a massive mastiff. The comedy apparently revolves around the latter's ability to drool gallons ofsaliv a and dismantle everything in sight in an effort to help the police withtheir enquiries. Needless to say. the two form a loving relationship and needless to say the film was a winner in the US. Thoughone can only hope that Hanks or even Hooch get better scripts in the future. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. Central: Cannon. Strathclydc: Kelburne. Odeon Ayr. Odeon Hamilton. L'CI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride.
I 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick. US/UK. I968) Keir Dullea. Gary I..ockwood. 141 mins. Celebrated visionary epic about the history and future ofthe human race. superbly crafted and directed by Kubrick. It needs the big screen to do real justice to the famous sequences on the development of man and the landing of the mysterious monolith. ()ne of the great classics ofmodern cinema. Glasgow; Grosvenor.
I The Ugly American ( 15) (George Englund. US. 1962) Marlon Brando. Eiji Okada. Arthur Hill. 120 mins. Rarely seen Sixties Brando. in which he plays a publisher made ambassador to a South-East Asian state whose arrival stirs up pro-Communist elements and leads to mayhem. Rather dated cold war exploits. the fairly simplistic Commie-bashing plot indicating that this was the era before Marlon acquired a political conscience. Edinburgh University Film Society.
I I U2: Rattle And Hum (Phil .loanou. US.
1988) Bono. The Edge. Adam Clayton. Larry Mullen. 90mins. U2 on their worldwide Joshua Tree tour find themselves exploring the great tradition of American popular music as they record with BB. King and a Harlem Choir. before taking a trip to the Sun Studiosin
22 The List 26 January — 8 February 1990
Memphis where Elvis ﬁrst recorded. Intriguing mix of stirring live footage and intimate documentary. capturing a band in transition. though perhaps just a little too much of the concert material. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge.
I Venus Peter (12) (Ian Sellar. UK. 1989) Ray McAnally. Gordon R. Strachan. David Hayman. 92 mins. Affecting adaptation shot on Orkney of Scots writer Christopher Rush's impressionistic A 'l‘ii'elvemonrh And/l Day. set in a fishing village in the 19505. One ochAnaIly‘s last roles casts him beautifully as the sympathetic grandfather of Peter. played by nine-year-old Strachan (who is not to be confused with the diminutive Scottish midfield genius) in this moving study ofa dying community seen through the eyesof a young boy. Central: MacRobert Arts Centre.
I What Have I Done To Deserve This? (Pedro Almodovar. Spain. 1984) Carmen
Maura. Luis Hostalot. l()()mins. Fromthe .
camera that brought you Women On The Verge. . .. an earlier. more surrealvision of desperation. sex and bizarre familial interactions in middle-class Spain. The central role is again played by a distracted Maura. this time as a housewife coping with her depression and her ghastly family by taking a wee snort of cleaning fluid with her prescribed amphetamines. Another gem. Strathclydc: MacRobert Arts Centre.
I When Harry Met Sally ( 15) (Rob Reiner. US. 1989) Billy Crystal. Meg Ryan. Carrie Fisher. 95 mins. Thoughtful sex comedy has Crystal (Harry). Ryan (Sally) and Reiner on top form. with highly entertaining results. Nora Ephron‘s witty screenplay intelligently ponders the possibility of male/female friendship with or without romance. and guess which side wins. . .Annie Hall for the late I98(ls.with now-famous faked orgasm. Glasgow: Cannon Clarkston Road. Cannon The Forge. Odeon. Edinburgh: Dominion. Odeon. Central: Regal. Strathclydc: Cannon. Kelburne. Odeon Ayr. Odeon Hamilton. UCI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride.
I Wish You Were Here (15) (David Leland. UK. 1987) Emily Lloyd. Tom Bell. Geoffrey Hutchings. 92 mins. Amatory misadventures of a precocious teenager (said to represent the young Cynthia Payne) in a drab 1950s seaside town. Enjoyable. bittersweet comic treatment of the sexual mores of times gone by. with an energetic performance from perky newcomer Ms Lloyd. Glasgow: GFT.
I The Woman in Red (15) (Gene Wilder. US. 1984) Gene Wilder. Charles Grodin. Joseph Bologna. 86 mins. Middle-aged exec (Wilder) begins to fantasise about a stunning model whom he glimpses wearing a dress of a particular hue. Wilder and his chums goofaround a bit and do no real damage to the excellent Un Elephant Ca Trompe Enormemenr by Jean-Loup Dabadie which the film apes. Glasgow: Grosvenor.
I The World of Apu (PG) (Satyajit Ray. India. 1959) Soumitra Bannerjec. Sharmila Tagore. Shapan Mukerjec. 117 mins. Apu is now a young Calcutta novelist who over the years comes to love the wife he has acquired through an arranged marriage. However. when she dies in childbirth he at first refuses to see his son. The final part in the Aputrilogy ends on a note of hope and confirms the whole triptych as one of world cinema‘s great humanist statements. Edinburgh University Film Society.
I Young Sherlock Holmes (PG) (Barry Levinson. UK. 1986) Nicholas Rowe. Sophie Ward. Anthony Higgins. 109 mins. Holmes‘ first case while he is still a schoolboy has him involved with a murderous underground cult of Egyptian origins. Produced by Steven Spielberg. this is entertaining stuff for older children. blending Victorian backgrounds with I980s special effects. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
