JAWS 3-D
1983, Universal, 99 min, USA, Dir: Joe Alves

The Brody family is back in the third installment of the JAWS series, starring Dennis Quaid and Bess Armstrong. This time out, police chief Brody’s son is all grown up and ready to marry a killer whale biologist when an undersea exhibit opens at the local Sea World resort and a great white shark sneaks in. As Quaid, Armstrong and crew deal with the ensuing havoc, they soon realize the situation is even more dangerous than they thought. The 3-D cinematography gets the audience closer to the action than they’ve ever been, from waterskiing human pyramids to a realistic and terrifying wave of destruction.

Jennie is being courted by both a rich classical pianist she idolizes and a down-to-earth rock musician. Sandra is on the lookout for Mr. Right, while Laurie is looking for Mr. RIGHT NOW! The closing musical showdown between Jennie’s suitors will tug your heartstrings and make you get up and dance.


CRUISING
1980, Warner Bros., 106 min, USA, Dir: William Friedkin

A bleakly chilling emotional travelogue of desperation, loneliness and spiritual hunger, CRUISING stars Al Pacino as a naïve undercover cop who descends into the leather-bar underworld of New York’s gay S&M scene. Widely condemned and misinterpreted on its release, CRUISING emerges today as one of Friedkin’s major works - it succeeds as a police procedural, horror film (there are scenes every bit as terrifying as THE EXORCIST), and saga of one seemingly "decent" man’s inability to face the truth about himself. Featuring a terrific score by composer Jack Nitzsche, with songs by The Germs.
