information call: (509)946-0653 GATES Mr Movie by Gary Wolcott chance to catch a film from Iran wonderfully filmed though sometimes confusing piece of work by Moshen Makhmalbaf who is one maverick filmmakers by the is a Persian rug An old couple finds a gabbeh floating in a stream They tiy to clean and when they do the characters portrayed on the rug come to life The lady on the gabbeh is in love with a horseman kept at bay by her controlling father who refuses to let her run away and many him The couple talk with the woman and get her story in bits and pieces Makhmalbaf the tale together like the ornate rugs made by the tribal nomads who wander the desert raising goats for wool One ofthe problems with Gobbeh is trying to figure out what is going on Wading through the imagery to get the flow ofthe story is difficult In the Company of Men In the Company qfMen is a mean-spirited movie It's about two men one a controlling egomaniac and the other a wimpy follower who woo a beautiful young woman just so they can dump her The lady is perfect for the because she's deaf and vulnerable That should give you a clue as to how uplifting this movie is The two guys played by Aaron Eckhart and Matt Malloy are grease from head to toe They give excellent performances because they truly are slime personified Stacy work is remarkable as well She's not really deaf but never be able to tell I like this movie For a low-budget character study well-done My problem is that In the Company of Men seem to have a is old news NWIMs Rated for sex nudity violence language It's playing at the Columbia Center a Mr Movie rating: 3 bap Wild Things has a 38 triple-D bra size The ladies especially strut through the movie showing plenty of their stuff He also shoots the movie like a muggy day hot and George boom-bity-boom soundtrack adds to the mood There have been too many of these kinds of movie released in the last few years a dime a dozen and once they get rolling it doesn't take a genius to chart the plot I expect much out of Wild Things and I wasn't disappointed For Information on: INNITUSRINGING EARS HEARING AIDS or to Dial a Self Hearing Teat PBhmBook Pillow Book is one of the most unusual movies I have ever seen and it's the most interesting picture at the TYi-Cities Arts Film first week Shot by avant-garde filmmaker Peter Greenaway Pillow Book turns the art of writing as in handwriting into an erotic experience He uses multiple image techniques in a most unusual and satisfying way Vivian Wu is a young woman taught the art of writing by her grandfather whose methodology was quite unorthodox write all over her body stating that God created humans gave them names then wrote their names on their lips so never forget them Seeing that his creation was good God then signed his name on them Wu takes her grandfather's art and moves it to a new level She searches foralover with perfect skin so she can write books on his body Wu also gets erotic experiences from having men write on her body The tale is a little kinky but Greenaway pulls it off with extraordinarily original film techniques Fast Cheap and Out of Control Fast Cheap and Out of Control is a misleading title not fast who knows where cheap came from but it is a little out of control Errol Morris a documentary filmmaker who got raves for The Thin Blue Line and A Brif History qf Time" fails to generate as much interest in this film as his others It's a series of interviews with a lion tamer a mole rat expert a robot designer and a topiary gardener interwoven with scenes of them practicing their crafts The four men talking about themselves doesn't work at all What does is Morris's absorbing images of them at work At first the footage of each person is exclusive to his interview but gradually Morris weaves the footage together blending the stories into a unit It's an interesting technique that comes too late in the movie to make the movie palatable Gobbeh Gobbeh gives area viewers a rare Wild Things is a twisting winding mystery with a plot as humid and oppressive as its Everglades setting And it oozes with sex violence and kinky characters Anyone seen the trailer for Wild Things knows the producers are selling the sizzle of Neve Campbell and Denise Richards as high school girls who set up their counselor Or do they set him up? If you've seen the trailer then you already know a wicked plot hatched by Campbell Richards and their partner in crime Matt Dillon as their school adviser not giving much away there are plenty of twists that come after you find that out Wild Things is all sizzle and no steak Director John McNaughton drenches this movie in sex It almost seems like every woman in VB MlniMf unlmportKl dtatorirpouditar dorm 81a 8 is XL 10 ooton swOtts 17422 ClllwHr tow (In Odf flf a it rvr via point except to prove two shallow men can inflict a lot of damage on a vulnerable woman Maybe the best explanation comes from writerdirector Neil LeBute's screenplay He has Eckhart 's character Chad rationalizing to his co-conspirator that he is playing the woman because he can The Myth of Fingerprints The Myth of Fingerprints slogs through the mire of a dysfunctional family and drags you along with it Four siblings come home for the Thanksgiving holiday They hate their father and feel sorry for their mom Through the film they snipe at each other take potshots at Dad out of his hearing of course and console their mother Then they leave The Myth (tf Fingerprints is written and directed by Bart Freundlich His script is angst from beginning to dull predictable end The name stars of the film are Knight-Riddar Tribune Julianne Moore Roy Scheider and Blythe Danner The others are unknowns and if they make more movies like this one they're likely to remain that way Career Girls Career Girls is an interesting character study done by last Oscar nominee Mike Leigh Secrets and Lies) It's about two women who shared a room during their college days The film flips back and forth from past to present in order to fill you in on their stoiy Leigh gets great work from Katrin Cartlidge (Breaking the Waves) as the strong ultra-hyper Hannah and from Lynda Steadman as an insecure allergy-infested Annie The ladies spend a weekend together after not seeing each other for six years and relive their college experiences through a series of flashbacks Cartlidge and Steadman are HELLS FLAMES0 ch 1W mmrnrmmm Country Collectors is closing its doors Save up to 7 5 on over 7000 sq ft of inventory including: Furniture Books Magazines Glassware it Ibys Cameras it Housewares Records Music Display Cases Much Much More!
