Rock Heist Movie Is Funny -But Uneven Has Many Faults this point for its unrealism How for example did they get their hands on an unmarked helicopter? jailbreak is a bit too slick and easy Their taking over a police precinct gets out of hand and is neither tense nor funny JOHN HUDDY herald entertainment editor With forte for action scenes it is not surprising that the jailbreak of Paul Sand (Greenberg) in a top-speed Mercedes excels in sheer tension It is followed by deadpan comment at the end of their hair-raising ride think we cornered too TIIE HIGH POINT of their criminal antics is the museum heist in which the four go through an elaborate scheme to divert the attention and rob the museum of the Sahara stone The scene combines suspense ingenuity and humor They almost get away

George Segal (Kelp) and Ron Leib-man (Murch) The handsome but cold presence of Robert Redford as Dortmunder the gastritis-ridden brains of the group does nothing but retard the lighthearted spirit Yates is a popular entertainment director having given us and and last with Peter CONSEQUENTLY Hot proves disappointing for a lack of continual suspense and a sense of comedy that is so subtle it gets

Mitzvah Is needled by relatives about his unending bachelorhood and recalls his own entrance into manhood years ago In perhaps the most exciting scene of the movie the physician encounters a homosexual with whom had a past affair He gives the man a ride only to have his expensive instrument case stolen In the end the distant ends of the love triangle finally meet after the young man goes to New York As we would expect the doctor and girl are polite almost friends and they part not too unhappily And in my case by this point in the film I could care less MISSES RwTSaj OCEANFR0NT-17Qlh

episodes I know what does IN ALL FAIRNESS however the acting is uniformly excellent the flashbacks and fantasies are handled extraordinarily well and there is an overall excellence to Individual scenes that cannot be denied One scene in which a dog is run over is exceptionally good Schlesinger also has a juxtaposition technique that is frequently effective as when we view a poster about starving people over a bulging refrigerator that is abruptly open revealing all sorts of delicious food IN THE STORY or non- story as it might be called the physician sleeps with the young man who

inuir- and attention MuVIE sven DCWICIll Schle- HEvlEW film about a sex-love triangle set in contemporary England has to do with the shock value of seeing men passionately kissing on the mouth or writhing (in lated sex) briefly in bed Interestingly the one impressive feat to me at least is that by the end of the Btory most of the audience will accept the homosexual side of the love triangle al- most as it does the affair tween the man and the woman And yet since if you remove the homosexual theme you have a very ordi-I nary story this self de- featlng?
