The Negotiator mins '1; 4- c a
Hollywood action thrillers don’t come more psychologically compelling than this. Samuel L. Jackson plays a Chicago police negotiator framed by someone on his own team. Taking Internal Affairs investigator J.T. Walsh hostage, he begins a mental chess game to save himself and lure out the real bad guy. Kevrn Spacey is his peer from another precrnct, the only man who might guess his moves in advance. The acting lS far better than this type of movre usually requires for deserves), and the audience's brains are engaged from the first to last frames. (Warner) (AM)
Talos The Mummy (15) 115 mins 1 t
The first of two films to resurrect the old movre monster. The problem With The Mummy was that it painstakingly stalked it's Victims With a limp — bang went the suspense. Director Russell Highlander Mulcahy attempts to patch this up by re-imagining the creature as a pile of flying bandages which wraps its Victims up, leading to a painful, if somewhat comic, death. SWitching locations between Egypt and England and guest starring the venerable Christopher Lee, this Mummy nevertheless creaks along much like its forerunners of the 1940s. (Entertainment) (ME)

A lab0ur of love for Robert Duvall, who works both behind and in front of the
camera to produce a masterful tale of redemption. Duvall's Bible Belt preacher is a superbly contradictory creation: a con artist on a phoney miSSIon from God and on the run from the law after committing an assault. At first covering his tracks and falling back into his old ways by setting himself up as a smalltown preacher, he eventually finds the humility to do the right thing. Praise the Lord!
