funny - comedy on what would, in other hands, be a serious topic. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge, Cannon Sauchiehall Street. Edinburgh: UCI. Strathclyde: UCI Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride.
I Psycho (15) (Alfred Hitchcock, US, 1960) Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, John McIntire. 109 mins. Hitch‘s misogynistic masterpiece has a young secretary take off to hicksville with a bagful of herboss‘s money. Unfortunately for her she chooses to put up at the Bates’ Motel, run by that nice Norman boy. The ironic dialogue (‘Mother’s not quite herself today') make it a joy to catch anytime around. We liked it didn't we mother. . . mother? Edinburgh: Cameo.
I Oulclr Change (15) (Howard Franklin & Bill Murray, US, 1990) Bill Murray, Geena Davis, Randy Quaid, Jason Robards. 89 mins. Robbing a bank, as anyone will tell you, is easier than getting
out of New York City, and that’s the central premise on which this moderately enjoyable Murray vehicle hinges. Together with his partners in crime (Davis and Quaid), and with Police Chief Robards on his tail, Murray undergoes a number of NYC-style traumas (the taxi driver doesn’t speak English, etc. , etc.) and comes out with an abundance of easy charm and dry wit. But overall he doesn't take enough risks to make Quick Change in any way outstanding. Glasgow: Grosvenor.
I Reﬂections In A Golden Eye (18) (John Huston, US, 1967) Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Brian Keith, Julie Harris. 108 mins. Everyday life in an army camp in Georgia: the major fancies the private who rides nude, the major’s wife has an affair with her neighbour, whose wife has cut off her own nipples with garden shears. Huston‘s adaptation of Carson McCullers‘ novel is stylish but lacks the emotional depth to take it from
the realms of arty porn. Glasgow: GFT. I Reversal at Fortune (15) (Barbet Schroeder, US, 1990) Jeremy Irons, Glenn Close, Ron Silver. 111 mins. Dramatic reconstruction, via Jewish American defence lawyer Alan Dershowitz‘s book, of the famous Von Bulow case, in which the European aristocrat (played with typical detachment by Irons) was convicted of attempting to murder his fantastically rich wife (Close). The film follows his appeal, led by the exaggeratedly flamboyant Silver as Derschowitz, but for legal reasons is unable to offer any judgement on his guilt or innocence, and does little more than intrigue and eventually frustrate the audience. Edinburgh: UCI.
I Rilt-Rett (15) (Ken Loach, UK, 1991) Robert Carlyle, Emer McCourt, Ricky Tomlinson. Jimmy Coleman. 94 mihs. A lighter-than-usual investigation ofBritish poverty from our foremost political director, written from first-hand experience by former labourer Bill Jesse, who died during the film‘s production. The story centres on Glaswegian-in-London Stevie (Carlyle), a would-be entrepreneur currently grinding out a meagre living on a building site, and his relationship with Susan (McCourt), who also has ambitious aspirations. The jolly badinage of Stevie‘s co-workers (among them ex-Brookr’e Tomlinson) provides an en joyably humorous backdrop, for which the Grim-Down-South message comes over all the more forcefully. Edinburgh: Cameo.
I Robin Hood: Prince olThieves(12) (Kevin Reynolds, US, 1991) Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Christian Slater, Alan Rickman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. 147 mins. See review. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge, Cannon Sauchiehall Street, Grosvenor. Edinburgh: Cannon, Dominion, UCI.
Central: Allanpark, Caledonian, Cannon. Strathclyde: Cannon, Kelburne, Odeon Ayr, Odeon Hamilton, UCl Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride, WMR Film Centre. I the Rocky Honor Picture Show (18) (Jim Sharman, UK, 1975) Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf. 100 mins. The cult ﬁlm to end all others, this rock spoof on old horror movies has created a breed of Rocky Horror crazies, and packs them in at late shows everywhere. The ﬁlm has its moments, and Curry is splendidly camp as the bisexual Frank N. Furter. Strathclyde: UCI East Kilbride.
I Secret Weddlno (15) (Alejandro Agresti, Argentina, 1989) Tito Haas, Mirtha Bushnelli, Sergio Poves Campos. 95 mins. Naked, suffering amnesia and running through the streets of Buenos Aires, Fermin Garcia (Haas) is like a new-born child emerging from the tyranny of the military junta. Returning to his home town, he ﬁnds madness and corruption in the air, and struggles to be accepted. Agresti’s tragi-comic view is of
an Argentina all too ready to forget the horrors of the past. Glasgow: GFT.
I Sex, Lies and Videotape (15) (Steven Soderbergh, US, 1989) Andie McDowell, Laura San Giacomo, James Spader, Peter Gallagher. 101 mins. The sex: John (Gallagher) is conducting a steamy affair with his sister-in-law Cynthia (San Giacomo). The lies: they neglect to tell his wife, Anne (McDowell). The videotape: J ohn’s buddy Graham (Spader) gets his kicks by filming women's sexual confessions. 26-year-old Soderbergh‘s first feature is a strikingly assured, funny and thoughtful piece of work, forcing usto examine our own attitudes toward sex, and won the Palme d‘Or at Cannes. Glasgow: GFT.
I Shadow Of A Doubt (PG) (Alfred Hitchcock, US, 1943) Joseph Cotton, Teresa Wright, Hume Cronyn,
Macdonald Carey. 108 mins. Quiet small-town American life is disrupted when Charlie (Wright) comes to realise that her favourite uncle is the infamous Merry Widow murderer. A subtle psychological thriller from the master. Glasgow: GFT.
I Sllence 0t The Lamb: ( 18) (Jonathan Demme, US, 1991) Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glenn. 119 mins. Following a series of horriﬁc serial murders, imprisoned psycho-killer Hopkins is released to help Foster and Glenn's FBI agents track down the culprit. Adapted from a novel by Thomas Manhumer Harris, Demme‘s ﬁlm version is a subtle but scarey suspense shocker, with two excellent performances and great narrative drive. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge, Odeon. Edinburgh: Dominion. Odeon, UCl. Central: Caledonian. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr, Odeon Hamilton, UCI Clydebank, UCI East Kilbride, WMR Film Centre.
I Ski Patrol (PG) (Richard Corell, US, 1989) Ray Walston, Roger Rose. Martin Mull. 90 mins. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cinema again, he‘s back! Yes, producer Paul Maslansky, the man who brought you all five of the miserably mirthless PoliceAcadem y movies, returns with his latest er, brainchild. This big-budget comedy caper has dashing ski instructor Roger Rose battling against nasty property developer Ray Walston who's seeking to change the local resort beyond recognition. Expect the same bland of juvenile slapstick and exasperating smuttiness as before. Glasgow: Grosvenor.
I Sleeping With The Enemy ( 15) (Joseph Ruben, US, 1990) Julia Roberts, Patrick Bergin, Kevin Anderson. 115 mins. Hollywood‘s hottest female star is once again the centre of attention in this effective thriller about a woman driven to
