constant joy to watch. At last. a literary film rather than a literature substitute. Glasgow: GFT. Ediburgh: Filmhouse.

I Paris I! Billing (15) (Jennie Livingston. US. 1990) Paris Dupree. Dorian Corey. the Xtravaganza Crew. 78 mins. Fashion show categories of Evening and Sports Wear compete with First Time in Drag and Butch Queen in this flowing documentary on the New York gay voguing scene. A celebratory film which leaves you smiling but your heart a little sadder at this doubly ghettoised community. See review. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I PassengersulS) (Kevin Hooks. US. 1992) Wesley Snipes. Bruce Payne. Tom Sizemore. 84 mins. Hijack specialist Payne kills his guards while flying to trial and takes over the plane. Disaster! But wait isn't that terrorist expert Snipes sitting over there. accidently on the same flight. That's the set-up. but it‘s the action that matters and Hook delivers it pretty well. using the confines of the setting and the comic book traits of his characters to advantage. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr.

in force at Edinburgh Festival. with major performances by Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra; The Royal Scottish National Orchestra: Scottish Chamber Orchestra; The London Philharmonic; Orquestra de Cambra Teatre Lliure; Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra; Philharmonia Orchestra; I SWF-Radio Symphony Orchestra Baden-Baden.

I Pom (PG) (Godfrey Reggio. US. 1988) 97 mins. Follow-up to Koyaam'sqarri is another visual collage. this time examining how Third World societies have been exploited. Once more the result is beautifully photographed. and Philip Glass again provides the impressive soundtrack. but somehow the impact of the original has been lost. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie (U) (Ronald Neame. UK. I969) Maggie Smith. Celia Johnson. Robert Stephens. Gordon Jackson. ll6 mins. The big screen adaptation of Murial Spark's tale of an eccentric Edinburgh schoolteacher in the l930s shows sharp characterisations and interesting period flavour. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I lied lloclr West (15) (John Dahl. US. I992) Nicolas Cage. Lara Flynn Boyle. Dennis Hopper. 98 mins. Mistaken for a Texas hitman. Nicolas Cage is offered $5.000 by a smalltown sheriff to

kill his wife . . . and then double the amount by

her if he'll reverse the hit. Scooting out of town with the money and the job undone. he bumps into the real killer. and his problems begin. A slick tale of double. triple and quadruple dealing that adds a comic twist to the tight Blood Simple atmosphere. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I lie-ember My lane (15) (Alan Rudolph. US. 1978) ~Geraldine Chaplin. Anthony Perkins. Moses Gunn. 94 mins. Rudolph tries his hand at the 40s noir style. with Chaplin as a woman newly out of prison and ready to destroy her former husband's new marriage. Terrific performances. with score and cinematography to match. Glasgow: GFT.

I Reservoir Dogs ( l 8) (Quentin Tarantino. US. I992) Harvey Keitel. Tim Roth. Michael Madsen. lOO 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. The best debut in years from writer-director Tarantino. whose stylish violence seduces the audience into complicity. Brilliant in every sense of the word. Glasgow: Odeon. Grosvenor. Central: MacRobert. Strathclyde: UCl Clydebank.

I llesnielt: Loner Hearts ( I 5) (John Harvey. UK. 1992) Tom Wilkinson. 150 mins. Rare chance to see this three-part TV drama in one cinema sitting. with Det Inspector Resnick on the trail ofa serial killer in Nottingham. Glasgow: GFT.

I l lliver Runs Throufit Ii (PG) (Robert Redford. US. I992) Craig Sheffer. Brad Pitt. Tom Skerritt. 124 mins. A fine. lyrical piece by director Redford describing the love and loyalty of two contrasting brothers in Montana early this century. Based on Norman Maclean's semi- autobiographical novel. it fuses the Scots Presbyterian lifestyle of American settlers with an true understanding of nature. Wonderful performances. beautiful photography: altogether a perfectly crafted film about human relationships. Glasgow: GFT. Strathclyde: UCl East Kilbride.

I River‘s Edge (l8) (Tim Hunter. US. 1986) Crispin Glover. Keanu Reeves. Dennis Hopper. 99 mins. A motiveless murder is the catalyst for a moral crisis among a group of teenage buddies. Challenging exploration of alienated youth and their attempts to forge a value system in a society of numbing moral blankness. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I lie-per Ste-per (18) (Geoffrey Wright. Australia. 1991) Russell Crowe. Jacqueline McKenzie. Daniel Pollock. 89 mins. A group of Nazi skinheads in Melbourne find their numbers dwindling when they get caught up in a street war with local Vietnamese. Hand-held camera shots draw the audience into the frenzy. letting them reject the skinheads‘ views with moral certainty rather than blind emotionalism. A film

this year's The music


includes Brucknen

that pressurises viewers into addressing the issues involved. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Savage Iii!!! Les Nuirs Ftrtrves (18) (Cyril Collard. France. 1993) Cyril Collard. Romaine Bohringer. Carlos Lopez. I26 mins. This story of an HlV+ photographer who has unsafe sex with both his male and female lovers is much more than an ‘AIDS movie': it is a staggering paean to being alive and in love. This is life and death stuff: life. as it is really lived on an irresponsible edge: death. as tragically took actor/director/writer Collard only days before his movie swept the French Cesar Awards. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Steal of a Woman (15) (Martin Brest. US. I992) Al Pacino. Chris O'Donnell. James Rebhom. 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. Overlong in its opening and closing scenes. this is still one terrific movie. with what is possibly Pacino's best performance in a distinguished career. Central: MacRobert. I Shadows and Peg (15) (Woody Allen. US. l99l) Woody Allen. Mia Farrow. John Malkovich. 86 mins. Late release for Allen‘s homage to/pastiche of early Fritz Lang. Allen is the innocent Kleinman. forced to join a vigilante group when a serial strangler terrorises an anonymous mittel-EurOpean town in the 19 0s. A showcase for the writer/director's talents for dark tragedy and one-line slapstick. Central: MacRobert. I Sherlock Junior (U) (Buster Keaton. US. 1924) Buster Keaton. Kathryn McGuire. Joe Keaton. 45 mins. A cinema projectionist spends his life daydreaming that he is a great detective. and one day actually finds himself in the movie he‘s projecting. Shown with the Keaton shorts The Love Nest and The Play/muse. with new sound effects and music on the soundtracks. The silent master proves his knowledge of cinematic form and. in tenns of stunts and laughs. leaves everyone else standing. Glasgow: GFT. I Silence Of The Lambs ( l 8) (Jonathan Demme. US. I99] ) Jodie Foster. Anthony Hopkins. Scott Glenn. “9 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 Munlrunrer Harris. Demrne‘s film version is a subtle but scary suspense shocker. with two excellent perfomiances and great narrative drive. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Sommersby (12) (Jon Amiel. US. 1993) Richard Gere. Jodie Foster. Bill Pullman. 114

mins. The plot of The Return of Martin Guerre goes wandering for a few years before emerging from the mists of the American Civil War in the shape ofJack Sommersby (Gere). who's not quite the man his wife (Foster) remembers. She's in love. but a court has to decide the genuineness of his claims. As effective as a thriller as the original but the central pairing lacks the spark that would really have set it on fire. Central: MacRobert.

I Star trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (PG) (Nicholas Meyer. US. l99l ) William Shatner. Leonard Nimoy. DeForrest Kelley. James Doohan. 109 mins. The usual bunch of old codgers boldly go in search of new plotlines but instead come up with an intergalactic variation on our own superpower peace talks. Throw in a renegade Klingon or two and the old mutual mistrust and tacky dialogue hits ham factor eight . . . and rising. Forget the grandiose aspirations and enjoy as a piece of undemanding pantomime. Strathclyde: Paisley Ans Centre.

I Straw Dogs (18) (Sam Peckinpah. UK. 197]) Dustin Hoffman. Susan George. David Wamer.

“8 mins. An mild-mannered American brings his English wife back to her home village. only to have violence flare in this inbred Cornish community. Long tarred with the ‘gratuitous‘ brush. Peckinpah‘s contemporary horror/thriller still retains its power. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Super Mario Bros (PG) (Rocky Morton/Annabel Jankel. US. 1993) Bob Hoskins. John Leguizamo. Dennis Hopper. l05 mins. The film of the video game featuring ltalian pipe-menders plumbs new and tedious depths. in a parallel world. they try to rescue a princess from a lizard-like baddie. but our heroes are lost in over-designed sets and variable special effects. More holes than a drain-cover. General release.

I Sure Fire (15) (Jon Jost. US. I990) Tom Blair. Kristi Hager. Robert Ernst. 83 mins. Blair‘s portrayal of mid-westem good ol' boy Wes fills the screen and the film: a man who‘s more than willing to generously help out his family and friends. but expects some sort of payback in return. His obsession with developing his home town in Utah into a paradise for Californian retirees eventually leads to a shocking confrontation with his son. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Tango (l5) (Patrice Leconte. France. I993) Richard Bohringer. Philippe Noiret. Thierry Lhennitte. 88 mins. The wife of a pilot is having an affair. so the advice from his judge uncle is to enlist the services of a professional hitman. A provocative. breezy jest of a film that is unlike the tautly controlled. intimate drama of Monsieur Hire and The Hairdresser 's Husband. See preview. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Teenage Mutant llinla ratios 3 (PG) (Stuart Gillard. US. 1992) Elias Koteas. Paige Tur'co. Stuart Wilson. Another Turtles movie! A prospect as appealing as a pizza slice reheated for the third time. This time. they're back in l7th century Japan in order to save April. Fresh locations won't stall the diminishing returns as kids fadish attentions have turned elsewhere. In a straight reptile vs reptile battle in the summer cinemas. those turtles are going to squashed under the dinosaurs feet. ninja skills or not. General release.

I Terminator 2: Judgement Day (15) (James Cameron. US. l99l) Amold Schwarzenegger. Linda liamilton. Edward Furlong. Robert Patrick. 136 mins. 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 Schwarzenegger's cyborg develops human feelings. this is more than just a $100 million fairground ride. Edinburgh: UCl. I Three Ninja Kid: (U) (Jon Turteltaub. US. I993) Victor Wong. Michael Treanor. Chad Power. 84 mins. Three mini-martial artists use their grandfather's training to help their FBI agent dad nail a baddie. Sort of Home Alone meets the Turtles (minus the suits) as the youngsters in the audience cheer their on-screen heroes as they kick the poo-poo out of a startlingly inept adult world. Edinburgh: UCl. Borders: Roxy. Central: Regal. Strathclyde: UCl Clydebank.

I Three of Hearts ( l8) (Yurek Bogayevicz. US. 1993) William Baldwin. Kelly Lynch. Sherilyn Fenn. llO mins. Girl meets girl. Girl loses girl. Girl hires gigolo to woo girl then break her heart. so she'll come running back. Not your average Hollywood love triangle. and certainly commendable for bringing a relaxed. comic attitude to sexuality that is normally ghettoised. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: ()deon. UCI.
