experiment. His real daddy is a Yorkshire pig breeder. Funny independent British movie from a determined cast and crew. which picked up some decent festival awards last year. Central: MacRobert.

I The long Roads (PG) (John McGrath. Scotland. 1992) 87 mins. A retired merchant seaman and his dying wife leave Skye to visit their dispersed children. With Douglas Mackinnon's wonderfully aunospheric Gaelic short. Seal/adh (The Vision). Sat 11 only. Glasgow: GFI'.

I m Bovary (PG) (Claude Chabrol. France. 1991) Isabelle Huppert. Jean-Francois Balmer. Christophe Malavoy. 140 mins. The veteran of French cinema‘s latest is a beautiful. entirely faithful. but slightly dull version of Flaubert's classic. Emma (Huppert) is bored with social conventions and scandalises 19th century bourgeois France with her infidelity. Fife: Robins.

I Made It America (12) (Richard Benjamin. US. 1993) Whoopi Goldberg. Ted Danson. Will Smith. 111 mins. When eighteen-year-old Zora raids the sperm bank's computer files to find her daddy. she uncovers a mix-up that brought her radical African-American mother and a crass cowboy car salesman together in a test tube. Completely unfunny ‘romantic comedy‘ that is undoubtedly one of the worst films of recent years. Glasgow: MGMs. Edinburgh: MGM. All UCls.

I M of the m N081 ( 15) (Vincent Ward. UK/Australia. 1992) Jason Scott Lee. Patrick Bergen. Anne Parillaud. 109 mins. A sweeping romantic epic that begins when an eleven-year- old Inuit boy meets an RAF map-maker. and later a half-Indian/half-French girl. Separated by culture and circumstance. their paths continually cross. significantly during World War 11. Like the shifting ice floes of its Arctic scenes. Ward's film is in a constant state of flux. A technically astonishing and profoundly moving exploration of how our lives are literally mapped out in advance. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I El Mariachi (18) (Robert Rodriguez. US. 1992) Carlos Gallardo. Consuela Gomez. Jaime de Hoyos. 89 mins. It may have been shot for a mere $7,000. but this consistently engaging thriller with touches of comedy quickly transcends its ultra-low budget. A lone mariachi musician becomes an unwilling action hero when he is mistaken for a similarly clad hitman. A great achievement. a great film. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Wis (18) (Henri Xhonneux. Belgium/France. 1989) With the voices of Francois Manhouret. Valerie King. Michel Robin. 83 mins. The Marquis de Sade‘s spell is prison is the backdrop to this sexually bold fantasy piece that has de Sade cast as a dog who holds lengthy conversations with his talking penis. Roland Topor's designs are worth noting. but the lewd outrageousness soon becomes unbearably tedious. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Matinee (PG) (Joe Dante. US. 1993) John Goodman. Cathy Moriaty. Simon Fenton. 100 mins. A coming~of-age tale set against the Cuban missile crisis. as a cinema showman (Goodman) brings his latest ‘2' grade sci-fi thriller to a small Florida town. Dante's latest is really an affectionate tribute to the antics of schlock filmmakers like William Castle. who stuffed the cinemas with tacky effects like electrified seats. Humorous nostalgia with sharply observed in- jokes and sideswipes at complacent suburbians. Fife: Adam Smith.

I Mean M08) (Martin Scorsese. US. 1973) Harvey Keitel. Robert De Niro. David Proval. 110 mins. Tony's Bar is the base for four young Italian-Americans. whose increasingly illegal activities lead to tragedy. Vividly observed character study which combines breathtaking technique with a pervasive sense of corruption. Keitel and de Niro give of their very best. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Mirror On The Moon (15) (Leandro Katz. Argentina. 1992) David Warrilow. Stefan Brecht. Berenice Reynauld. 100 mins. Intricate and riddled with subplots. Mirror on the Moon weaves three enigmatic stories around an elusive woman and the obsession to decipher secrets. Latin American Film Festival. Glasgow: GFT. I Moonnlkor (U) (Jerry Kramer & Colin Chilvers. US. 1988) Michael Jackson. Sean Lennon. Kellie Parker. Joe Pesci. 100 mins. The Jacko plan for world domination continues with this ragbag of pop videos and archive footage masquerading as a feature film. Criticism is pointless as the kiddies will flock to it anyway. but there's a lot to dislike about a movie which exploits their short attention spans. Strathclyde: WMR.

I m I“ M Nothing (PG) (Kenneth Branagh. UK/US. 1993) Denzel Washington. Kenneth Branagh. Emma Thompson. Keanu Reeves. 111 mins. A lusty. lively version of Shakespeare's comedy of love and deceit. set in the sun-drenched Tuscan hills. Barbed witticism fly across the screen as British thesps and American stars acquit themselves with honours.

Glasgow: Odeon. MGM Parkhead. Edinburgh: Cameo. All UCls.

I Naked City Provo-.01 (IS)75 mins. A music-driven programme of films and videos from the New York Underground scene. featuring (along with Programme 2 at the end of the month) the likes of Sonic Youth. REM. Lydia Lunch and Tom Kalin. Glasgow: GFT.

I lid“ ltd Day (15) (Chantal Akerman. France. 1991) Guillaine Londez. Thomas Langmann. Francois Negret. 91 mins. A woman and her boyfriend anive in Paris and spend all their time in bed. with the exception of when he goes out on his nightly taxi round. Which gives her the chance to begin a relationship with the man who drives the same cab during the day. Unlike Akennan's back catalogue. this all-too- familiar menage a trois simply looks banality straight in the face. See review. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Once Upon A Forest (U) A one-off preview screening of this animated ecological adventure. which doesn‘t quite capture the appeal of last year's F ernGu/l_v. The film will open on general release in mid-October. Fife: Robins.

I Ono Lost You (18) (Gerardo Lara. Mexico. 1993) Vanessa Bauche. Tiare Scanda. Marco Munoz. 100 mins. Matilde moves from a small town to Toluca to go to high school. where she meets Yolanda. another recent arrival. The girls try to establish their freedom from their families. only to find themselves caught in the political turmoil of the 1976 student strikes. Latin American Film Festival. Glasgow: GFI'.

I Orlando (PG) (Sally Potter. UK. 1992) Tilda Swinton. Billy Zane. Quentin Crisp. 92 mins. A male Elizabethan courtier begins a journey of self-discovery that involves four centuries and a sex change. Swinton's simple but unique beauty captures the androgyny of the perfect Everyman/woman. while director Potter creates from Virginia Woolf's novel a humorous and visually splendid succession of episodes that is a constant joy to watch. At last. a literary film rather than a literature substitute. Edinburgh: Cameo. Strathclyde: UCI East Kilbride.

I PUB. Tam(15)(w1m 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. 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 M: Is Ming (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. Central: MacRobert.

I Passion Fish (15) (John Sayles. US. 1992) Mary McDonnell. Alfre Woodard. David Strathaim. 135 mins. When a car accident leaves her paralysed. soap star May-Alice becomes a self-styled ‘bitch on wheels'. retreating to her home in Louisiana and battling with a succession of nurse-carers until she meets her match in Chantelle. Perfectly scripted and acted. this is a moving. witty account of two women coming to terms with major changes in their lives. Another classic from Sayles. who reaches emotional depths without resorting to cliches. A special preview screening at the Cameo cinema on Sat 18 at 11.30am for those taking this issue to the box office. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I The Philadelphia Story (PG) (George C ukor. US. 1940) Katharine Hepburn. Cary Grant. James Stewart. 112 mins. Splendidly sophisticated Hollywood comedy with Stewart as a scandalsheet reporter covering the society wedding of recently divorced Hepburn. ex- hubby Grant lurking in the wings. and romance recurdling despite itself. Sparkling dialogue and charismatic performances all round make this one of the best of its kind. Remade as the musical. High Society. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Point m (15) (Kathryn Bigelow. US. 1991) Keanu Reeves. Patrick Swayze. Gary Busey. Lori Petty. 120 mins. Director Bigelow (Blue Steel. Near Dark) takes on Hollywood's action/adventure big boys at their own game and comes out on top. Reeves is the eager young FBI recruit on the trail of a group of latex-masked bank robbers who are known to be surfers. Bigelow 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. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Red Rock I”! (15) (John Dahl. US. 1992) 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
