LISTINGS WEEK ONE FILM
Nobu Kanaoka. Shinya Tsukamoto. 83 mins. More sophisticated than its eye-opening predecessor. Tsukamoto‘s latest post-modem body horror does have a plot — something to do with the murder of a child and the father's subsequent mutations through rage. However. it is the relentlessly violent imagery that most sticks in the mind. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Thank God I’m A Lesbian ( I5) (Laurie Colbert/Dominique Cardona. Canada. 1992) 55 mins. Homophobia against feminists. coming out. SM. racism — this is not a trite celebration of lesbianna as the title might suggest. Instead. it's a taut. wide-ranging documentary on the lesbian experience. With British short Lune. 7th Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Toys (PG) (Barry Levinson. US. 1992) Robin Williams. Michael Gambon. Robin Wright. 121 mins. When their father dies. Leslie Zevo and his sister Alsatia are left his utopian toy factory, but their nasty uncle decides instead to turn out war toys: it's militaristic madness against childish lunacy. Nice sets but. wow. is this a piece of gross self-indulgence from [.evinson who doesn't seem to know if this is a kids' film for adults or an adults' film for kids. General release. I 20,011) Leagues Under the Sea (PG) (Richard Fleischer. US. 1954) Kirk Douglas. James Mason. Paul Lukas. 126 mins. Jules Verne goes Disney in this lavish and exciting underwater adventure. Mason is great as the anguished Captain Nemo. but Douglas is a bit too American goodie-goodic. Strathclyde: Paisley Arts Centre. I ‘Mn Peaks: Fire Walk With Me ( 18) (David Lynch. CS. 1992) Sheryl Lee. Kyle Mclachlan. Ray Wise. 135 mins. The move to the big screen to chronicle last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer allows Lynch to go to greater excesses than in the TV series. A dark-hued and disturbing miasma of small-town corruption and perversity. filled with Peakie faves and new cameos. Central. .‘vlacRobert. I Under Siege ( 18) (Andrew Davis, 1992) Steven Seagal. Tommy Lee Jones. Gary Busey. 103 mins. Die Hard on a boat. with martial arts ace Seagal as the ship‘s cook and the only man who eat) take on a group of terrorist revolutionaries who have taken over its nuclear arsenal. A kind of ultra-violent comedy. it should take Seagal out of the video ranks and into the big league. as he‘s simply a better anti-hero and actor than Jean-Claude. Amie and Dolph put together. Glasgow: MGM Parkliead. All UCls. I Unforgiven ( l5) (Clint Eastwood. 1992) Clint Eastwood. Gene llackman. Morgan Freeman. 123 mins. Clint returns to the saddle as a former killer. tamed by his late wife. btlt pressed into joining a bounty hunt which takes him to the town of Big Whiskey and into the presence of its sadistic sheriff (Hackman). A darkly disturbing western which destroys the genre's traditional notions of clear-cut good and evil. instead presenting violent acts as physically and psychologically painful for victim and perpetrator alike. Glasgow: Grosvenor. MGM Sauchiehall Street. All L'Cls. I Waiting (15) (Jackie McKimmie. Australia. 1990) Noni Hazlehurst. Deborra-1.ee l-‘urness, Frank \Vhitten. A surrogate mother awaits the delivery of her child in an isolated fannhousc. surrounded by girlfriends and hangers-on. What on the suface may seem to be a familiar post- feminist treatise on pregnancy becomes a line slice of comic realism in the hands of .‘vicKimmie. Edinburgh: liilmhouse. I Wheels and Deals ( 12) (Michael Hammon. Germany. 1991) Not everything in Soweto is as had been hoped following Mandela's release. and a young car thief finds himself in the midst of inter-faction violence and poverty. A hard- hitting feature from former television newsman Hammon. Edinburgh: liilmhouse. I Wittgenstein ( 15) (Derek Jarman. CK. 1993) Karl Johnson. Michael Gough. Tilda Swinton. 75 mins. A tiladc-for-TV guide to the coolest 20th century philosopher that Britain has any claim to is a home-grown intellectual's dream scenario. Arranged in inescapably ‘Jarntanesquc' tableaux. the vignettes are enjoyable in themselves. but the cinematic limitations of trendy academia are clear. Biography rather than enlightenment. See review. Glasgow: Gl-T. I Young Frankenstein ( I5) (Mel Brooks. LS. 1974) Gene Wilder. Gene Hackman. Peter Boyle. 108 mins. A splendidly accurate James Whale pastiche choc-full of memorable one- liners and cra/ee situations. Brooks' most affectionate and consistently humorous film. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Your Gheatin’ Heart (Michael Whyte. CK. 1990) John Gordon Sinclair. Tilda Swinton. Ken Scott. 6 x 50 mins. From the pen of Tutti Frurri‘s John Byme comes this witty tale lifting the lid off the Scottish Country n Western underground.
