YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (dir: Mel Brooks, PG) - Michelle says, "Running a close second to BLAZING SADDLES for funniest Mel Brooks' movie, this quotable favorite marries the hysterics of Yiddish theater with the self-awareness of seventies sex comedy. Plus, all of its actors have one crazy attribute: Gene Wilder (hair), Marty Feldman (eyes), Madelyn Kahn (voice), Terri Garr (boobs). Watch for the 'Puttin' On the Ritz' bit. You and your nice Jewish grandma will cry with laughter."
ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE (dir: Martin Scorsese, Not Rated) - Greg says, "When people talk about their favorite Scorsese movies you frequently hear about RAGING BULL, GOODFELLAS and TAXI DRIVER. My dark horse candidate is this very un-Scorsese women’s lib film starring the bracing Ellen Burstyn. She plays a recent widow who heads for California with her annoying kid only to be waylaid in dreary, sun-bleached Arizona. Throw in a gruff Kris Kristofferson, a terrifying Harvey Keitel and a pre-teen shoplifting Jodie Foster and you basically have a perfect movie. Who needs boxers, gangsters and misunderstood vigilantes anyway?"
THE CONVERSATION (dir: Francis Ford Coppola, PG) - Greg says, "Gene Hackman may never have given a better performance than as a professional eavesdropper succumbing to a crisis of conscience in Francis Ford Coppola's unnerving thriller. Although not as widely seen as Coppola's other 1974 film, THE GODFATHER PART 2, the small and subtle pleasures of THE CONVERSATION put it in the same league of quality. In fact, both films were nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award. I dare you to not get the chills during this film's haunting final scene."
GOING PLACES (dir: Bertrand Blier, R) - Bart says, "Mostly I hate the films of Bertrand Blier, which are, almost without exception, childish provocations meant to shock audiences with their outrageous immorality. The only time his schtick has ever really entertained me is with this story of two fun-loving thugs, played by Gerard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere, who take what they want when they want - cars, money, women, you name it. Despite the irredeemable loutishness of their behavior, you can't help but side with their unthinking crusade against all things bourgeois and find them sympathetic solely on the basis of how much they love each other's company. Watch this movie with a friend."
