Cobo, Estela lnda. Miguel lnclan. 88 mins. The liberal social conscience picture is given caustic treatment by Bunucl as he examines a violent gang of Mexican kids who inflict cruelty on everyone who crosses their paths. Rather than lay blame solely on social factors. Bunucl shows his
surrealist roots by emphasising the dreams .
and sexuality of the individual. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

Set in the snowy wastes of Lapland. the first film shot in the Lapp language follows a teenage boy Aigin (Gaup) as he returns from a huntingtrip to find hisfamily slaughtered by a gang of marauding warriors and vows to avenge their deaths. Familiar reworking of Good vs Evil. fascinatingly filmed as something akin to a Scandinavian Kurosawa movie. Edinburgh: Royal Museum.
I Peeping Tom (18) (Michael Powell. us. 1960) Karl Boehm. Moira Shearer. Anna Massey. A movie studio lows puller equips his camera with a spike and setsout to murder young women while filming the fear on their faces. Utterly reviled upon its initial release. Powell's daring examination of voyeurism as a metaphor for the cinema itself is now regarded as one ofthe most intelligent British films ever made. Glasgow: Gl-‘l‘.
I The Prime Oi Miss Jean Brodie ( t 7) (Ronald Neame. UK. 1969) Maggie Smith. Celia Johnson. Robert Stephens. Gordon Jackson. 116 mins. The big screen adaptation of Murial Spark‘s tale ofan eccentric Edinburgh schoolteacher in the 1930s shows sharp characterisations and interesting period ﬂavour. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I Pump Up The Volume (15) (Allan Moyle. USCanada. 1991 ) Christian Slater. Scott Paulin. Ellen Greene. Samantha Mathis. 102 mins. The over-burdened students of Hubert Humphrey High relieve their frustrations everyevening by tuninginto pirate radio DJ Happy Harry Hard-On. But shy incomer Mark llunter(Slater) soon finds that his nighttime alter-ego is getting a bit out of hand. particularly when one of his listeners commits suicide and Happy Harry is blamed. An anarchic teen angst movie with a soundtrack —The Pixies. Liquid Jesus. Bad Brains— that would put hairs on the chest of a bottle of meths. Edinburgh: Cameo.
I 0oadrophenia(18) (Frank Roddam. UK. 1979) Phil Daniels. Leslie Ash. Philip Davis. Sting. 120 mins. Modsand Rockers live it up on Brighton beach byswapping buckets and spades for chains and sticks. Lively first half has enough energy. music. violence and period flavour to carry it along. but all too soon it degenerates into some sort of treatise on the morality of youth set to tunes by The Who. Glasgow: Grosvenor.
I Ouerelle (Rainer Werner Fassbinder. West Germany/France. 1982) Brad Davis. Franco Nero. Jeanne Moreau. Gunther Kaufmann. 108 mins. Fassbinder’slast film is a sweat-heavy nightmare-vision of Genet's novel. steeped in homosexual eroticism and Teutonic despair. Lots of fun if you're a gay. German nihilist; otherwise more than a little tiresome. Glasgow: GET.
I Rambling Rose ( 15) (Martha Coolidge. US. 1991 ) Laura Dern. Robert Duvall. Diane Ladd. Lukas Haas. John Heard. 110 mins. Sleepy Georgia of 1935 is the setting for this coming-of-agc period piece in which a barefoot farm girl is taken in by a more prosperous family. Rose (Dern) is a naive temptress and among those who fall for her simple charmsare
thirteen-year-old Buddy (Lukas Haas of Witness fame). A delicately handled. finely balanced movie that oozes with nostalgia. See preview. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Cameo. UCl. Strathclyde: UCl Clydebank.
I Regarding Henry ( 12) (Mike Nichols. US. 1991) Harrison Ford. Annette Bening. Bill Nunn. Mikki Allen. Nancy Marchand. 107 mins. When lawyer and general bastard Henry Turner (Ford) nips out to the shop for a packet of fagsand accidently gets shot in a hold up. all memories of his life are wiped out. Now begins a long period of rehabilitation of both mind and body. and. with it. the chance for Mr Ford to indulge in some serious Hollywood acting. Mike Nichols glibly directs a script that is far too black and white and takes too many predictable turns. Central: Regal.
I Rescuers Down Under (U) (I lendel Butoy Mike Gabriel. US. 1990) With the voices of Bob Newhart. Eva Gabor. John Candy. George C. Scott. 77 mins. Miss Bianca and Bernard. the two top mouse agents from the International Rescue Aid Society. this time journey tothe Australian outback in order to help an eight-year-old boy protect an endangered eagle from a ruthless poacher. Disney’s 29th full-length animated feature uses state-of—the-art animation techniques to give more of an action/adventure slant to this sequel to 1977‘s The Rescuers. which is still a favourite of Disney fans ofall ages.

I Reversal of Fortune ( l5) ( Barbet Schroeder. US. 1990) Jeremy Irons. Glenn Close. Ron Silver. 111 mins. Dramatic reconstruction. via Jewish American defence lawyer Alan Dershowitz' book. of the famous V'on 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 Dershowitz. bttt 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: Cameo. i I Robin Hood: Prince 0tThieves< 12) 5 (Kevin Reynolds. LS. 1991 ) Kevin Costner. Morgan Freeman. Christian Slater. Alan Rickman. 147 mins. Second outing of the year for the Nottingham legend. this time with Hollywood's golden boy in the title role. ('ostner's Robin slips into Indiana Jones mode as he setsabout undoing the wrongs of Rickman's scene-stealing Sheriff in a way that is wonderfully reminiscent of the best Saturday matinee swashbucklers.
