FILM LISTINGS WEEK ONE
BACA R D14 Premium Black rum
Ironside. 109 mins. In Verhoeven's hugely expensive rollercoaster of violence. Arnie plays a construction worker whose vacational fantasy (implanted by Rekall Incorrbrated) is to pitch him into a netherworld of assassins and femmes farales before unleashing the full truth about his nightmares of life on Mars. Glasgow: MGM Film Centre. I Truck Step vie-en (18) (Mark L. Lester. US. 1974) Lieux Dressler. Claudia Jennings. Gene Drew. 87 mins. Eccentric pulp nonsense about the Organisation's efforts to get in on an all- fernaie gang truck hijacking operation. Big fun. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I 2N1: A Space Odyssey (U) (Stanley Kubrick. US/UK. 1968) Keir Dullea. Gary Lockwood. 141 mins. Celebrated visionary epic about the history and future of the human race. superbly crafted and directed by Kubrick. It needs the big screen to do real justice to the famous sequences on the development of man and the landing of the mysterious monolith. One of the great classics of modem cinema. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Now 1999 (PG) 120 mins. A must for Gerry Anderson fans everwhere as a double bill of 70s TV hits the big screen. First up is the ‘Exposed' episode of UFO. in which civilian test pilot Paul Foster's sighting of a UFO leads him to a new career with SHADO. Next up is 'Breakaway'. the opening episode of Space 1999 and an introduction to life on Moonbase Alpha. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Illterglvee (15) (Clint Eastwood. US. 1992) Clint Eastwood. Gene Hackman. Morgan Freeman. 123 mins. Clint returns to the saddle as a fomier killer. tamed by his late wife. but 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. Edinburgh: Cameo. I The Vanishing (15) (George Sluzier. Netherlands. 1988) Bernard Pierre Donnadieu. Gene Bervoets. Johanna Ter Steege. 106 mins. A young Dutch woman on holiday with her boyfriend in France disappears inexplicably. and her partner spends years of his life tracking her down. eventually to meet up with her mysterious abductor under the most nerve-shattering of circumstances. Meticulous in every department and with a truly chilling suprise ending. Sluzier’s film not only boasts the last decade‘s most convincing movie villian but is invested with a very affecting undercurrent of emotional vulnerability. Glasgow: GFT. I NWWUS) (Ang Lee. US/Taiwan. 1993) Winston Chao. May Chin. Sihung Lung. Ah-Lea Gua. 107 mins. A successful naturalised American lives happily with his gay lover in Manhattan until pressure from his parents in Taiwan forces him to marry a young Chinese artist in need of a green card. But when mum and dad jump on the next plane for the wedding celebrations. a farcical situation becomes emotionally tense. Funny and serious in perfectly balanced measure. this deserves to be one of the arthouse hits of the year. See preview. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I What's love not To be With It? (18) (Brian Gibson. US. 1993) Angela Bassett. Laurence Fishbume. 118 mins. The life of Tina Turner presented as inspiration for women trying to escape from domestic abuse. While suffering from the usual short cuts and polishings as any biopic whose subject is still alive. it boasts two magniﬁcent central performances from Bassett and Fishbume. who brings the right level of seductive nastiness to Ike. Songs and period detail are good. See feature. General release. Tm The Ages (PG) (Benjamin Christensen. Sweden. 1921) 83 mins. Three years in the making. Christensen‘s painstaking history of witchcraft reveals the enduring appeal of silent cinema as a medium of startling visual power. Clearly ahead of his time. the director uses mobile carnerawork. light and shade and a heightened sense of surrealism to explore one’s darker fears. The sadism and nudity featured in the recreation of some of the rituals led to the ﬁlm being banned in certain countries. Edinburgh: Cameo. I Th Y”. Alericats (18) (Danny Cannon. UK. 1993) Harvey Keitel. Craig Kelly. Iain Glen. 109 mins. At last. a British movie that is brave enough to be openly commercial and play directly to its young adult audience. Cannon's debut is a glossy. slick. in-your-face thriller.
