Friends of Erna Nixon Park, annual gather- The Far Side By Gary Larson Bill Murray gives 'Ghostbusters' its spirit Ghostbusters: Bill Murray isn't just an actor in Ghostbusters, he's a hypnotist. As he delivers his lines in his brilliantly casual style, you start to believe that the makeshift movie surrounding him is good possibly wonderful. When Murray's on screen, you're entranced. The rest of the picture seems to vanish. Murray plays Dr. Peter Venkman, a professor of parapsychology who doesn't believe in ghosts. He's an inspired wise guy whose flippant and amoral spirit is more than a match for the spooks he eventually ft S? Cs, ft :vi Murray encounters. "I'm fuzzy on the whole good-bad thing," he says, not especially ashamed of his ethical uncertainty. After Venkman and his associates (played by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ra-mis) are kicked off campus, they go into business for themselves as free-lance exorcists. These ghostbusters set up shop in an abandoned fire station and try to attract customers plagued by poltergeists. "We're ready to believe you," they say on their TV commercials. Ivan Reitman (Stripes) directed from a script by Aykroyd and Ramis. Sigour-ney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star. Rated PG, Ghostbusters is on view at the Altamonte Mall and Parkwood Plaza cinemas and the Conway 2. JAY BOYAR iff II Gf 'Egad! It's those weird possums from across town!

Derivative. Exploitative. Those are words that you often hear when the latest batch of rock videos arrives. But here is a new term: shocking. There is overstatement in it, but something stronger than "provocative" is needed to describe what many people will feel on seeing Frankie Goes to Hollywood's new "Two Tribes." Frankie is a controversial English band whose first video ("Relax") was banned by the BBC last year because of its sexual overtones. The "Two Tribes" video has been limited by the BBC to showings after midnight, so that children presumably will be safely tucked away. But "Two Tribes" is not about sex. It is about politics. 'The record itself No. 1 in England for weeks is a relatively tame anti-war statement set to a disco-accented beat. It is the video that ignites things, by dramatizing the old notion that there wouldn't be any wars if the leaders of countries rather than the young people had to do the actual fighting. In the video, actors portraying President Reagan and Soviet Premier Chernenko go at it in a dusty ring, while the audience bets on the outcome. There is kicking, nose-bloodying and rolling in the dirt. Although the video has received some airplay, an edited version will be shown on Music Television starting Saturday. Some rock-video shows began showing "Two Tribes" early last month. Why the delay with MTV? "We submitted it informally to MTV to see if they'd play it, and they liked it a lot," said Kris Puszkiewicz of Island Records in New York. "They had a couple of problems, which we agreed to edit. But they had to send the rest of the video to a review committee. Explained Les Garland, vice president of programming for MTV: "We were enthusiastic about it from the start, but we had to go over it with our lawyers because of the political implications in an election year." FLASH From E-1 along. The music (by Tangerine Dream) is both synthesized and synthetic. Most importantly, the script (by Dennis Shryack and Michael Butler) and its characters are as pat as they are unoriginal. The story centers on Ernie (Treat Williams), an honest, hotheaded U.S. Border Patrol officer, and Logan (Kris Kristofferson), his world-weary partner. Their lives change dramatically when they stumble onto a fortune in cash that has been buried for nearly 20 years. Logan wants to take the money and run, but Ernie is more concerned about doing the right thing. While they argue about what to do, the danger mounts. A measure of the movie's superficiality is how it keeps jumping from idea to idea. The issue of unfair immigration laws is raised, for example, only to be dismissed with a shrug. President Kennedy's , assassination is brought in to explain where the money came from, but the reference is merely exploitative. And two female characters (Tess Harper and Jean Smart) are introduced as "love interests," but . their activities aren't really integrated with the main plot. It's as if the women are there simply to assure us that Ernie and Logan ; are heterosexuals. The reason I say that Flashpoint is an almost perfect example of a cable movie is that it contains some performances that are too good for that category. I'm -thinking here of Rip Torn and Kurtwood Smith, who play a ACTRESS From E-1 Kris Kristofferson ... his acting is maturing. kindly Texas Ranger and a corrupt government agent, respectively and convincingly. The best and most sustained performance, though, is the one given by singer-turned-actor Kris Kristofferson. Although he has appeared in such questionable films as Convoy, Rollover and A Star Is Born, Kristofferson just seems to get better as he goes along. His rangy body conveys strength, and his bffhandedness suggests sincerity. He's also got an intelligent, scratchy voice that's the most expressive thing in this movie. With his gray beard and scrunched-up eyes, Kristofferson seems like a cross between Kenny Rogers and Clint Eastwood but one that can actually act. Even if you're a devoted Kris Kristofferson fan, though, there's no need to rush out to see Flashpoint. Just sit tight. It'JJ turn up on cable soon enough. , goes on. The key to that role was to see beyond James' cynicism to the story. His richness of perception and attention to detail are amazing. But it's very common that someone tries to undermine the confidence of someone else who truly believes in what they're doing." Vanessa Redgrave brines the same commitment to her political life that she does to her acting roles. In 1960, long before nuclear disarmament was a daily world issue, she joined the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in London. During a sit-in, she was arrested and jailed. In 1964, she joined the Society for Anglo-Chinese Understanding, a communist group dedicated to better diplomatic relations between the Western bloc and China. She now defends the rights of Palestinians to return to their homeland; she supports the PLO; she has run for the British Parliament as a leftist. She is still embroiled in a $5 million lawsuit brought against the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1982, alleging that the BSO canceled her contract to narrate Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex because of her unpopular political views. The case is scheduled to be heard Oct. 15. Since Boston is the site of her most recent battle, it's curious that it's also where she's been asked to work. "The Bostonians was the first part I was asked to do after the problem with the Boston Symphony," she said. "And Sarah was the second. It is curiously coincidental that producers want me to make films here, but the BSO doesn't want me to perform." No matter how much Redgrave would like to separate her politics from her art, it's nearly impossible. Her politics did cause some problems with the financing of The Bostonians. According to someone associated with the production, a major financier pulled out of the- project as soon as Redgrave was hired. "They just refused to have anything to do with the film after Vanessa was hired," said the source, who prefers anonymity. "Not only that, but they also talked to their other wealthy Boston friends about it. We were lucky to get the money we needed." Victor Pisano, writer and pro- ducer of Three Sovereigns For Sarah, had no problems casting Redgrave. "We were so fortunate to have someone of her talent involved with the film. I was thrilled," he said. "She is a great artist ... a great actress ... regardless of her politics. We weren't looking for someone who might share our political views. We were looking for a great film artist, and we got the greatest." work at hand," she said. "I do not choose roles because of their politics. I choose them based on the interest I have in the story. If the script is good, then I'll take it. Secondly, I look at the character they want me to play." Many actors claim that they choose roles based on the director and the other cast members, but Redgrave said that those elements are secondary. "Even if you have a director who has done bad movies, or actors who have done bad parts, you don't know why," she said. "It could be that they haven't had the right material, or there may be other, personal circumstances that forced them to do certain When Redgrave acts, that is her primary concern. "I don't like anything to interfere with the I've never been a movie star and I hope I never am. Vanessa Redgrave things. But if you find a great story, everyone seems to rise to it." According to several people who worked with Redgrave on The Bostonians, she was a pivotal, motivating force. "You just have to be better when you play opposite Vanessa," said Christopher Reeve, in an earlier interview on the set of The Bostonians. "She is so good that if you don't try your hardest and do your best, you'll look like an ama teur. She just added another dimension to the film. I don't think there's anyone better." Madeleine Potter, who made her screen debut as Verena in The Bostonians, was clearly enthralled with Redgrave. "I was so lucky to be in a film with her," she said, in an interview a few days after the Boston opening. "She made everything so easy for me because her Olive was so real. She is so good that she never seems to be acting. Nothing shows." "I just hope I can find Sarah," said Redgrave, while strolling back to the Hawthorne Inn. "I think I'm close, but you're never sure., The key is to find the heart of the character. I think she's a woman who cannot tolerate injustice. She feels her sisters have been dealt an injustice, and she feels compelled to correct it." As she passed the headquarters of Laurie Cabot, Salem's witch-in-residence, Redgrave was approached by a young woman wearing a T-shirt advertising The Fantasticks, playing at Theater East. "I'm so glad to see you," said the young woman. "I'm with a local theater company, and we'd be honored if you'd come to our show." "Don't be silly," said Redgrave. "Of course, I'll come. You just tell me when it's best for you." The young woman walked away, apparently shocked by Redgrave's positive response. "I've never been a movie star," said Redgrave, later. "And I hope I never ami"
