DELICATESSEN Contact: EUFS 60. The Pleasance Edinburgh 031 557 0436 L———_H -. 20 The List 8—21 October 1993

I W M (U) (Duwayne Dunharn. US. 1993) With the voices of Michael J. Fox. Sally Field. Don Ameche. 87 mins. Disney remake of The Incredible Journey. in which two dogs and a cat cross the Californian mountains to return to their family. More than mere anthropomorphism: the dratted animals have characteristics that would put Ghandi to shame. Under-sixes will love it. parents probably not. See review. General release.

I llot Shots M M! (12) (Jim Abrahams. US. 1993) Charlie Sheen. Lloyd Bridges. Valeria Golino. 87 mins. More cinema parody than Cinema Paradiso. this time it's boys' own action movies that are in the sigth. as Charlie Sheen tries to rescue the POWs from the Gulf. The jokes race past so quickly that if one stumbles and falls. another hurdles it immediately. if you're familiar with the targets. it's a satisfying enough sitting. Glasgow: Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. All UCls.

I m of Angels (15) (Colin Nutley. Sweden. 1992) Helena Bergstrom. Rickard Wolff. Sven Wolter. 126 mins. A rural community's suspicions are aroused when the hip grand- daughter of a deceased landowner arrives from the city with boyfriend and motorbike to take over his house. Englishman abroad Nutley effectively dissects the racism and bigotry of a small community with much humour. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. Fife: Adam Smith.

* I It The U00 0' Fire (15) (Wolfgang Petersen. US. 1993) Clint Eastwood. John Malkovich. i Rene Russo. 128 mins. A Secret Service veteran

in the twilight of his career is haunted by the Kennedy assassination. so when a former government killer threatens the life of the cunent

President. he vows now ensure history won‘t

repeat itself. Lavish action scenes don't detract , from the film's crucial emotional core as

Petersen delivers the best mainstream

Hollywood movie in years. General release.

I W W (15) (Adrian Lyne. US.

1993) Demi Moore. Robert Redford. Woody

Harrelson. 117 mins. Suave bastard Redford

offers poverty-stricken yuppies Moore and

Harrelson a million dollars if he can sleep with

the lady and dilemma ensues. Killer base

material. but Lyne makes a towerineg abominable film out of it. Cavemously empty stuff. a worse film than even The Bodyguard and likely to be every bit as successful. Fife: Adam Smith.

I Jurassic Park (PG) (Steven Spielberg. US.

5 1993) Sam Neill. Laura Dern. Jeff Goldblum. A

group of scientists are invited to give their approval to a theme park filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs. but the giant reptiles are soon running amok. Unsurpassed computer effects ensure that the dinosaurs themselves are terrifyineg believable (moreso than the PG certificate would suggest). but by the halfway point. it‘s more or less a chase movie with superior technology. General release.

I Kill. K00] (Merian C Cooper. US. 1933) Robert Amistrong. Fay Wray. 100 mins. A film producer on safari brings back a souvenir monster which terrorises New York. One of the all time great monster movies. even though the plot is somewhat flawed (why. for example. if the natives on the island wanted to keep Kong at bay with a giant wall. did they build a door in it large enough for him to get through?) Glasgow:


I U010(18)(Jean-Claude Lauzon. Canada. 1992) Maxime Collin. Ginette Reno. Gilbert Sicotte. 107 mins. A French Canadian boy escapes from the increasing insanity of his family life into a bizarre series of fantasies. in which he is the offspring of his mother and a sperm-laden Sicilian tomato. Lauzon dives deeper into the darkly funny and painfully sad aspects of sexual awareness and adolescence. A unique. beautifully visual treat. With Jim Shields' Tartan Short Rain. Central: MacRobert. I I“ Do. And Glory (15) (John McNaughton. US. 1992) Robert De Niro. Bill Murray. Uma Thurman. 97 mins. After saving the life of a loan shark. a cop is ‘given' a beautiful barmaid for a week; but when he falls for her. he has to fight for his love. Casting the major stars against type works well in a film that is at times disconcerting but consistenly enjoyable. Glasgow: MGM Film Centre. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I M It Anode: (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. All UCls.

I III! Bites no. (18) (Remy Belvaux/Andre Bonzel/Benoit Poelvoorde. Belgium. 1992)

Benoit Poelvoorde. Remy Belvaux. Jenny Drye. 96 mins. Somewhere in the unexplored hinterland between Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and This Is Spinal Tap came three young Belgians. who spruced up their graduation film. Horrifically comic mock-doc on a poetry- quoting mass-murderer. it soon sharpens its serious edge and becomes truly shocking. A real chin-dropper of a film if ever there was one. Glasgow: Grosvenor.

I Man II The White Suit (PG) (Alexander Mackendrick. UK. 1951) Alec Guinness. Joan Greenwood. Cecil Parker. 85 mins. A dishwasher in a textile mill invents a fabric that never wears out or gets dirty. Mackendrick adds a touch of acidity to the Ealing comedy formula. Guinness is spectacularly good. exploiting his trademark smarminess to great effect. See review. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I Map of the m Heart (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 mapmaker. and later a half-lndian/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. Central: MacRobert.

I Men With Bee: In Their Bomb (PG) 100 mins. A gala showcase - with live musical accompaniment of 60 years of the Scottish lntemational Amateur Film Festival. introduced by Janet McBain of the Scottish Film Archive. Glasgow: GFI'.

I Home The Lie (15) (Francois Margolin. France. 1993) Nathalie Baye. Didier Sandre. Helene Lapiower. 89 mins. A single sentence shatters Emma's life when she discovers that. not only is she pregnant. she is HlV+ as well. Further investigations reveal that her husband is secretly a bisexual. Mensonge veers towards melodrama. using the AIDS virus as just another household. Glasgow: GFT. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.

I W m (PG) (Michael Gottlieb. US. 1992) Hulk Hogan. Sherman Hemsley. Austin Pendleton. 84 mins. Hulk Hogan follows the successful Suburban Commando with a film that owes something to Home Alone. This time he's a bodyguard roped into looking after two desuuctive kids who like nothing better than setting booby-traps for their nannies. For the kids only. Strathclyde: Kelbume.

I Much Ado 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. Grosvenor. Edinburgh: Cameo. UCl. Strathclyde: UCl Clydebank.

I Naked City macaw) 75 mins. A music-driven programme of films and videos from the New York Underground scene. featuring the likes of Sonic Youth. REM. Lydia Lunch and Tom Kalin. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I The Navigator (15) (Vincent Ward. N2. 1988) Bruce Lyons. Chris Haywood. Hamish McFarlane. Marshall Napier. 92 mins. in medieval Cumbria. a lad named Griffin dreams up a mysterious mission to save his fellow villagers from the Plague. The answer is simple: dig a hole to New Zealand. On arrival on the

other side of the world. the bewildered villagers ; find themselves in the present day. and must

confront a nightmare world of cars. televisions and post-indusuial cynicism. Ward's extravagant imagination will not please everyone. but for those willing to suspend belief and accept this film's ambiguity. it is a delightful tour deforre. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I A lid’ti At The Opera (PG) (Sam Wood. US. 1935) The Marx Brothers. Margaret Dumont. Kitty Carlisle. Allan Jones. Walter Woolf King. 90 mins. The Brothers (minus Zeppo) were at the height of their comic powers when they made this masterpiece. This time they‘re helping an opera company get back on its feet. but not before they've had a hand in wrecking it in the first place. Glasgow: GFl”.

I Orrea Upon I PM (U) (Charles Grosvenor. US. 1993) With the voices of Michael Crawford. Ben Vereen. Ellen Blain. A full-length animated feature from Hanna-Barbera that adds an ecological twist to a coming-of-age tale about woodland animals coping with a toxic waste cloud. Songs are by An American Tail's James Homer. but the film itself. while capturing something of classic children's storybook

.spnrrsnrud by BACARDI- Premium Black rum

animation. is no classic itself. See review. Glasgow: MGM Parkhead. All UCls.

I OaceUpuATlu hTheMUS) (Sergio Leone. US. 1968) Henry Fonda. Charles Bronson. Claudia Cardinale. Jason Robards. 165 mins. Probably Leone‘s best film. this classic western details in operatic fashion the drive of crooked railroad magnate Fonda to cheat widow Cardinale out of her land. until lone stranger Bronson comes to town. Brilliant Morricone score. achineg slow pacing. and an enthusiastic use of the wide screen mark this out as an

idios ncratic gem. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I (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 '5 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. Central: MacRobert.

I Will 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. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I PredatoHtS) (John McTieman. US. 1987) Arnold Schwarzenegger. Carl Weathers. Elpidia Carillo. 107 mins. Arnie and his dirty half-dozen are hired to enter a dense South American jungle to free a hostage. but lurking unseen in the foliage is a chameleon-like being waiting to skin alive any unsuspecting human to cross its path. Slow to build. but ultimately gripping macho mayhem with a real sense of threat. Glasgow: MGM Film Centre.

I Project Ability (PC) A special film/video showcase of drama. comedy. animation and documentary presented by Project Ability. who create artistic events and opportunities for special needs groups within the community. Glasgow: GFT.

I The Quince Tm Sill (U) (Victor Erice. Spain. 1992) Antonio Lopez. Enrique Gran. Maria Moreno. 139 mins. A grouchy old artist sets out to paint the quince tree in his garden and a couple of his mates come round. Sounds pretty deadly. but the viewer soon finds watching the artist at work utterly compelling. to the extent that the tiniest event becomes a crucial incident. A majestic film experience. Or the Emperor's new clothes syndrome. Glasgow: GFl'.

I Raining Stones (15) (Ken Loach. UK. 1993) Bruce Jones. Julie Brown. Ricky Tomlinson. 90 mins. Another slice of real life from one of Britain's most dedicated filmmakers. An unemployed father brings terror to his household when he goes to a loanshark in order to pay for his daughter's first communion dress. Throughout. the northern community's sense of natural humour makes this a heartening. amusing and very accessible film indeed. See preview. Edinburgh: Cameo. UCl.

I limit 0093(18) (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. The best debut in years from writer-director Tarantino. whose stylish violence seduces the audience into complicity. Brilliant in every sense of the word. Edinburgh: UCl. Strathclyde: UCl East Kilbride.

I km of the Cream (PG) (Jack Arnold. US. 1955) John Agar. Lori Nelson. John Broomfield. 82 mins. The 3-D sequel to Creature From The Black Lagoon has the gill- man being captured by humans and undergoing cmel experiments. No one was better than director Arnold at capturing that science-horror- paranoia of the post-war period. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Ring M W this (PC) (Jack Couffer. UK. 1969) Bill Travers. Virginia McKenna. 107 mins. Modest story of one man and his otter. Perfect. credible filming of a heartwarming animal story. A treat for adults and children alike. with lovely wildlife photography. Edinburgh: St Brides.

I m S. (18) (Philip Kaufman. US. 1993) Sean Connery. Wesley Snipes. Tia Canere. 129 mins. With these stars and a script from his

novel by Michael (Jurassic Park) Crichton. this should have been a state-of-the-art H011 wood
