It‘s Christmas time. and nasty old miser Scrooge (Caine) needs taught a lesson by three seasonal ghosts. Colourful version of Dickens' classic tale that will please the kids and keep the adults smiling with its little irreverent spices. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr. La Scala.
I My Cousin Vinny (15) (Jonathan Lynn. US. 1992) Joe Pesci. Marisa Tomei. Fred Gwynne.
1 19 mins. TWO New York students visiting the Deep South are charged with a murder they most certainly didn't commit. Enter rookie lawyer Vinny Gambini (Pesci). and it's a test of can-do Italian-American guile against the old-fashioned Southem gentility of Fred Gwynne‘s curmudgeonly judge. A howlingly funny character comedy that at last lets Pesci carry a movie on his own. Thoroughly recommended. Glasgow: Mercat.
I light and the City (15) (Irwin Winkler. US. 1992) Robert De Niro. Jessica Lange. Alan King. 105 mins. A dead-end lawyer tries to set up a boxing night. borrowing money from his lover. In his second outing as director. famed producer Winkler fails to exploit the material. never knowing whether to play it as comedy. drama or violent urban thriller. And as for De Niro. it's a perfomiance in search of a movie. Edinburgh: UCI.
I light On Earth (15) (Jim Jamiusch. US. 1992) Winona Ryder. ~Beatrice Dalle. Gena Rowlands. Giancarlo lisposito. 129 mins. 1.os Angeles. New York. Paris. Rome. Helsinki. Five cities. five taxi rides. five chance encounters. The director of Mystery Train and Down By Lun- pushes aside narrative and goes instead for visual uniformity in a claustrophobic setting. Character studies with a mildly philosophical aftertaste. Fife: Robins.
I III Mice Mill "on (PG) (Gary Sinise. US. 1992) John Malkovich. Gary Sinise.Sheri1yn Fenn. 1 1 1 mins. A slow-witted. gentle giant and his resourceful. protective side-kick search for work in Depression-hit America. Sinise the director marries the themes of Steinbeck's classic novel to vibrant landscapes of rural farm life. American tragedy in its purest form. Strathclyde: Mothcrwell.
I On The Two (U) (Stanley Donan/Gene Kelly. US. 1949) Frank Sinatra. Gene Kelly. Jules Munshin. 98 mins. Three guys go out into the ‘wonderful town' of New York.

I Orphans (it The Storm (PG) (D. w. Griffith. US. 1921) Lillian Gish. Dorothy Gish. Joseph Schildkraut. Lucille La Verne. 124 mins. Classic silent epic of the French Revolution. whose melodramatic elements are readily forgivable because the acting and the spectacle are so marvelloust intense.

Reeves is the eager young FBI recruit on the trail of a group of latex-masked bank robbers who are known to be surfers. Director Bigelow (Blue Steel. After Dark) tackles cliches of buddy partnerships. macho bullshit and thriller shoot-outs with fresh energy. creating a tenific movie that has one foot in reality. the other in an absurdist world.

Middleweight boxing champ Jake La Motta finds it difficult to sustain his early success and as his career fades. he declines into a travesty of his former self. De Niro's stunning physical presence dominates Scorsese‘s savagely bleak study of self-destructive machismo. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I Reservoir Dogs ( 18 I (Quentin Tarantino. US. 1992) Harvey Keitel. Tim Roth. Michael
Madsen. 100 mins. A gang of hoods. known
only to each other by colour-coded nicknames. meets at an abandoned warehouse to figure how out their rigorously planned heist went so drastically wrong.

Redford. US. 1992) Craig Sheffer. Brad Pitt. Tom Skenitt. 124 mins. A the. lyrical piece by director Redford describing the love and loyalty of two contrasting brothers in Montana early this century.

I "in Sacrifice ( 15) (Andrei Tarkovsky. Sweden. 1986) lirland Josephson. Susan Fleetwood. Allan lidwall. 149 mins. Set on a remote island and focusing on a 24-hour period of action.

An overwhelmingly poetic experience that forms a fitting testament to a remarkable career. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I SGOIII of a Woman (15) (Martin Brest. US. 1992) Al Pacino. Chris ()‘Donnell. James Rebhorn. 156 mins. A blind. alcoholic ex- serviceman and a scholarship college boy spend Thanksgiving Weekend in New York and find themselves in a series of funny and moving adventures which finally lead them to come to terms with their true selves.

I "I0 Servant ( 18) (Joseph Losey. UK. 1963) Dirk Bogarde. James Fox. Wendy Craig. 1 15 mins. Bogard found one of his best screen roles in this now dated class drama as a manservant forcing role-reversal in the home of his decadent master (Fox). Absurdity and tension is heightened by Harold Pinter\ inimitable dialogue. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
I Shadows SIIII F09 ( 15) (Windy Allen. US. 1991) Woody Allen. Mia Farrow. John Malkovich. 86 mins. Late release for Allen's homage to/pastichc of early l‘rit/ lang. Allen is the innocent Kleinrnan. forced tojoin a vigilante group when a serial strangler terroriscs an anonymous mittel-Iiuropean town in the 1920s. A showcase for the writer/director's talents for dark tragedy and one-line slapstick. Glasgow: GI-‘I‘.
I The Shining ( 18 I (Stanley Kubrick. L'S. 198(1) Jack Nicholson. Shelly Duvall. Philip Stone. 146 mins. Kubrick's overwrought. overlong horror film dispenses with much of the psychic apparatus of Stephen King's novel to concentrate on the deeper horror of a family turning in on itself. Nicholson. with all the stops out. is bug- eyed and demonic as the writer cracking up violently in an isolated hotel. and the final scenes are. literally.chi11ing. lidinburgh: Cameo. I Singles ( 12) (Cameron Crowe. US. 1992) Bridget Fonda. Campbell Scott. Kyra Sedgwick. Matt Dillon. 9(1mins. The way it's been sold you'd think it was some total guitar hardcore odyssey vibe. but in fact it's a honey-coated romance that just happens to take place in Seattle. There‘s a high recognition factor for twentysomcthings in the audience as they watch the ensemble cast find its way around misdirected crushes. parties from hell and crap gigs. Watch your life flash before you. Glasgow: MGM Sauchiehall Street. Fife: Glenrothes. Cannons: Falkirk. Kirkcaldy. Kilmarnock.

When Nightclub chanteuse Deloris (Goldberg) sees her gangster boyfriend murder an underling. she goes on the run and ends up in as the unlikely new member of a nearby convent. A bit like Some Like It Hot meets The Sound ()fMustt‘. except the songs hark back to Motown and are by far the best thing about the movie. Glasgow: ()deon. MGM Parkhead. Strathclyde: UCls.
I SINK“ ( 15) (Richard Linklater. (IS. 1991) Over 100 Texans. 97 mins. l'nclassiftable piece of independent American moviemaking which doesn‘t have a plot as such; instead it provides a snapshot of over 100 ‘slackers‘ - young. happy- go-lucky drifters — as they get through their daily lives. Structured as a monumental relay (each character brieﬂy appears. meets the next. and so on). it has a loose. experimental. almost jazzy fomiat that you‘ll either love or hate. A sure-fire
