on the run from the secret service and trying to get his documentary ﬁlmmaker girlfriend to help him. Computer animation replaces the old standby of unseen bits of string. but the ﬁlm‘s extended chase narrative is nowhere near as inspired as the trick work. Cannons: The Forge. Sauchiehall Street. Edinburgh. All UCls. Strathclyde: Kelbume.
I India We ( 18) (Bertrand Blier. France. 1990) Charlotte Gainsbourg. Anouk Grinberg. Gerard Depardieu. Michel Blane. 117 mins. Two French teenagers embark on a road journey that takes them back to the Occupation as well as acrossthe country.

I telldrad Pierce (PG) (Michael Curtiz. US. 1945) Joan Crawford. Jack Carson. Zachary Scott. 113 mins. Crawford excels (she won an Oscar) as the titular woman who turns her back on her husband and becomes a successful restauranteur. while ﬁghting her own selﬁsh daughter for the heart of a playboy (Scott) and getting embroiled in a murder plot. Viewed by some as the sort of strong woman‘s role that is so elusive today. its suggestion that death follows when a woman abandons the kitchen sink is actually pretty patronising. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I ﬂy OI! Privataldaho(18) (Gus Van Sant. US. 1991) River Phoenix. Keanu Reeves. William Richert. 105 mins. Shakespeare‘s Henry IV Parts I and 2 are given a sleazy. contemporary twist in Van Sant’s follow-up to the admirable Drugstore Cowboy. Screen heart-throbs Phoenix and Reeves make brave career moves by playing a rent boy and the preppie layabout object of his affections. but to good effect. A compelling. idiosyncratic. left-ﬁeld gem. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Mystery Traln ( 15) (Jim Jarmusch. US. 1989) Masatoshi Nagase. Nieoletta Braschi. Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Joe Strummer. 113 mins. Jarmusch‘s first colour feature. like his earlier ﬁlms. draws heavily on a beat-inspired road-movie genre.

Edinburgh: Cameo.
I Naked Lunch (18) (David Cronenberg. US. 1992) Peter Weller. Judy Davis. lan Holm. Roy Scheider. 121 mins. Body horror maestro takes on the near impossible task of ﬁlming William Burroughs‘ controversial novel The Naked Lunch and comes out with a cinematic masterpiece. Elements from Burroughs‘ own life merge with a surreal narrative and the book's bizarre. drug-induced sexual imagery. leaving a bewildered. but impressed. audience in their wake. By no means easy watching. but well worth
the effort. Glasgow: Grosvenor. Edinburgh: Cameo.
I Paris. Texas (15) (Wim Wenders. US/W. Germany. 1984) Harry Dean Stanton. Natassja Kinski. Hunter Carson. 144 mins. Missing for four years. middle-aged loner Stanton turns up in the Texan outback. and is later reunited with his son. The two embark on a trek across America to ﬁnd his estranged wife. the young boy‘s mother.
5 Wenders' coolly dislocating visual sense of
combines with writer Sam Shepard's version of America's desolate heartlands to produce a moving story of personal alienation. Edinburgh: Cameo.
I Paris Trout(18) (Stephen Gyllenhaal. US. 1991) Dennis Hopper. Barbara Hershey. Ed Harris. Tina Lifford. 99 mins. Hopper is on trademark psychotic form. this time in the Deep South during the late 19405. When a young black man failsto keep up the payments on a car he bought from shady businessman Paris Trout. the latter assumes white superiority and kills his client‘s sister.

Queenie (Swinton) and Burrs(Weid1ich) are a self-destructive couple who have been living together too long. In an attempt to revive their dead love. they throw a party for friends and acquaintances.

A twisted world of cannibalism and child abuse awaits poor kid Fool (Adams) when he breaks into the house of his landlords. Genuine shocks and a social conscience enliven this dark fairy story for the 90s. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr.
I Le Petit Theatre de Jean Renolr ( PG) (Jean Renoir. France. 1969) Jeanne Moreau. Fernand
Sardou. 100 mins. Renoir‘s farewell to the cinema is a portmanteau of four separate stories. an uneven divertissement from an old man. Originally made for French television. Edinburgh: French Institute.
I Polnt Break(15) (Kathryn Bigelow. US. 1991) Keanu Reeves. Patrick Swayze. Gary Busey. Lori Petty. 120 mins. Director Bigelow (BlueSteel. Near Dark) takes on Hollywood's action/adventure big boys at their own game and comes out on top.

reality. the other in an absurdist world. Glasgow:
I Proapero'a Books ( 18) (Peter Greenaway. UK. 1991 ) John Gielgud. Michael Clark. lsabelle Pasco. Michel Blane. 125 mins. Greenaway transforms Shakespeare‘s The Tempest intoa visual feast by using groundbreaking High Definition Television technology. Gielgud delivers a near-definitive Prospero. backed up by an impressive European cast. and Michael Nyman‘s score is perhaps his best yet. A ﬁlm like no other. immersed in illusion as both subject matter and form. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Ralalng Arizona ( 15) (Joel Coen. US. 1987) Nicolas Cage. Holly Hunter. 94 mins. Married ex-con Cage settles down to a life of crime once more and remedies his wife‘s childless state by stealing a millionairc‘s recently whelped quintuplet. Exhilirating. live-action cartoon combining non-stop action . crazy situations and deadpan wit. This second feature from the Brothers (Blood Simple) Coen is a joy. Glasgow: Grosvenor. I Ring Of Bright Weter (PG) (Jack Couffcr. UK. 1969) Bill Travers. Virginia McKenna. 107 mins. Modest story ofone man and his otter. Perfect. credible ﬁlming of a heartwarming animal story. A treat for adults and children alike. with lovely wildlife photography. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I River's Edge ( 18) (Tim Hunter. US. 1986) C rispin Glover. Keanu Reeves. Dennis Hopper. 99 mins. A motiveless murder is the catalyst fora moral crisis among a group of teenage buddies. Challenging exploration of alienated youth and their attempts to forge a value system in asociety of numbing moral blankness. Edinburgh: Cameo I Robln Hood(12) (John Irvin. US. 1991 ) Patrick Bergin. Uma Thurman. Jurgen Prochnow. Edward Fox. 104 mins. Raunchy but unsatisfying version of the much-filmed myth about medieval English rabble-rouser. with Thurman exuding post-feminist sensuality and Bergin revellingin the rakish rebel persona. It failed to take the wint out of Costner‘s sails. and may only be remembered as a prime example of what happens when rival studios try to beat each other over the same project. Glasgow: GFT. I Salmonberrles ( l 2) (Percy Adlon. Germany. 1991) kd lang. Rosel Zech. Chuck Conners. 94 mins. In her film debut. lang uses her androgynous looks to their best ability as an orphan living in a remote Alaskan village. who befriends the local librarian. Both attempt tolay their ghosts to rest on a journey to Berlin. a metaphor for the inner journeys they simultaneously undergo. Terminally slow exposition leads into an interesting second half. but by then most viewers will be deadened by frustration. Glasgow: GFT. I Scorsese r 4 (PG) 80 mins. Four shorts from th- American moviemeister. The programme includes early efforts What's A Nice Girl Like Yo Doing In A Place Like This?. It's NotJust You. Murray.'. and 1967‘s The Big Shave. Most revealing. however. is Italianamerican. a 1974 interview with the director‘s parents. which reveals the star potential of Mrs S. . only brieﬂy glimpsed several years later in Goodfellas. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (U) (Walt Disney. US. 1937) With the voices of Adriana Caselotti. Harry Stockwell. Lucille La Verne. 83 mins. One ofthe most enchanting and inﬂuential of animated features. The central character isa mite wet but the individualistic dwarfs. memorable songs. superbly crafted backdrops and characters make this an essential cinematic experience. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. Strathclyde: Cannon. ()deon Ayr. All UCls. I Stop 0r My Mom Will Shoot (PG) (Roger Spottiswoode. US. 1991 ) Sylvester Stallone. Estelle Getty. JoBeth Williams. 87 mins. The cinematic error that is Stallone‘s comdey career continues apace. This time he's an LA cop whose mother becomes the key witness to a murder. Cue lots of shots of an old lady in a jogging suit with a big gun. Ha. ha. ha. as they say. Believe it ornot. British-born director Spottiswoode once made the excellent Sandinista revolution drama Under Fire. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. Central: Caledonian. All UCls.
I Swan in Love( 1M(\'olker Schlondorff. France/W. Germany. 1984) Jeremy lrons. ()rnella Muti. Alain Delon. 110 mins. Opulent. condensed Proust for the art house set with lrons as the French aristocrat infatuated by the lower class Muti. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I lennlnator 2: Judgement Day ( 15) (James Cameron. US. 1991) Arnold Swarzenegger. Linda Hamilton. Edward Furlong. Robert Patrick. 136 mins. The most expensive ﬁlm ever made. In a reprogrammed role that says much about his changed image since the first movie. Arnie becomes the underdog fighting to protect mother and child from another more advanced cyborg. With an element of uncontrived human compassion lurking throughout the gloriously expensive action sequences. as Swarzenegger‘s cyborg develops human feelings. this is more than
just a S 100 million fairground ride. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I The Three Mllllon Triel (PG) (Yakov Protazanov. USSR. 1926) A crooked banker is brought down to earth ﬁrst by a gentleman thief. then a common burglar in this silent satire on Western greed. With Chess Fever. an early Russian homage to American slapstick. Glasgow: OH”. I Truly. Madly. Deeply (PG) (Anthony Minghella. UK. 1990) Juliet Stevenson. Alan Rickman. Bill Paterson. 103 mins. Nina. a youngtranslator. thinks her life is falling apart when her loverdies. But when he returns. albeit with a cold and looking a little paler. she begins to question her previous notions of happiness. A wonderfully literate screenplay by first-time director Minghella anti a faultless performance by Stevenson raise Truly. Madly. Deeply above the level of its American counterpart. Ghost. Glasgow; GF'T. I Until the End of the World ( 15) (Wim Wenders. Germany/US/Japan/Australia. 1992) Solveig Dommartin. William Hurt. Sam Neill. 158 mins. After having been chased across the world by various nefarious types. Claire Tourneur (Dommartin) and lover Trevor (Hurt) end up in an Aussie underground lab. with nuclear armageddon around the corner. The sci.ﬁ and ‘female Peer Gynt‘ elements don't gel. but Wender‘s ﬂawed rock‘n‘roll-powered odyssey does have its own kind of fascination. A special free List/Cameo screening on Sat 30 June. See review. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Van Gogh ( 12) (Maurice Pialat. France. 1991) Jacques Dutronc. Alexandra London. Gerard Sety. 185 mins. Less an art history than a look at a painter in his times. this - the best of the Van Gogh cinema treatments — lets us sit back and watch an entirely convincing Dutronc go about his daily life. A kind of 19th century cinema-verite. it is an altogether remarkable movie experience. Glasgow: GFT. I Voyager ( 15) (Volker Schloendorff. France/Germany. 1991) Sam Shepard. Julie Delpy. Barbara Sukowa. 120 mins. A respected American engineer re-examines his coldly rationalist outlook on life when he survivesa plane crash and subsequently meets a beautiful young woman. Shepard‘s gruff underplaying brings conviction to well-structured literary ideas while an array of European locations offers food for thought and much nourishment for the eye. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Wayne's World (PG) (Penelope Spheeris. US. 1991) Mike Myers. Dana Carvey. Rob Lowe. Tia Carrerc. 95 mins. Two heavy metal dorks hit the big time when their public access cable show is snapped up by a greedy TV exec for national primetime. Crammed full ofTV and film pastiches. this US phenomenon has far more hits than misses. while Wayne and Garth revel in an even wackier vocabulary than cinematic first cousins Bill and Ted. They‘ve shot. they‘ve scored! General release. I West Side Story (PG) (Robert Wise & Jerome Robbins. US. 1961) Natalie Wood. Richard Beymer. Russ Tamblyn. Rita Moreno. 155 mins. Romeo AndJuliet revisited against a background of New York gangs. Great songs of course. but the playing of the stylised dancing against a realistic background contrives to make it all look rather camp these days. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Who Framed Roger Rahhlt? (PG) (Robert Zemeckis. US. 1988) Bob Hoskins. Joanna Cassidy. Christopher Lloyd. 92 mins. In 1949 LA. the humans live alongside the Toons. cartoon characters working in movies. Animated star Roger Rabbit hires private dick Hoskins to keep tabs on his wife. but he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens the future ofToontown itself. An amazing technical achievement for the interaction of cartoons and live action. this box ofﬁce winner spoofs thefilm noir genre while milking the Tex Avery-style cartoon violence for all it‘s worth. Glasgow: GFT. I Wild At lleart ( 18) (David Lynch. US. 1990) Nicholas Cage. Laura Dern. Diane Ladd. Willem Dafoe. 127 mins. Lynch‘s much-hyped Cannes prize-winner turns out to be weird and wondrous in its own way. ifnot quite as cohesive asthe earlier Blue Velvet. Cage and Dern are the energetic young lovers on the run. pursued by ultrastrange hitman Dafoe on a sometimes comic. sometimes disturbing. trail towards the ultimate rendezvous with Elvis and the Wizard of Oz. Edinburgh: Cameo. IThe Witches (PG) (Nicholas Roeg. us. 1990) Anjelica Huston. Mai Zetterling. Rowan Atkinson. 92 mins. Nine year-old Luke is warned by his Norwegian granny about the everpresent threat posed by witches. which isn't much help because within the next half hour he stumbleson their annual convention in a small English hotel and gets himself changed into a mouse. A pleasing adaption of Roald Dahl's children's story has director Roeg (in unusually straightforward manner) creating a superior kids movie that has you rooting for the mice all the way. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
