Saturday 12 July 1997

ADRENALIN: FEAR THE RUSH (18)
Lame horror movie, devoid of plot and characterisation.

BATMAN & ROBIN (PG)
George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell are the heroic pair in Joel Schumacher's ugly, garish disaster of a movie.
THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS (NC) Revival of Gillo Pontecorvo's astonishing 1965 drama. An astute piece of political commentary about the struggle of Algiers to attain liberty from France, it's also a taut thriller, with a documentary feel.

Stanley Tucci's delicious movie about two Italian brothers trying to run a gourmet restaurant in 1950s New Jersey.

Welles's re-released masterpiece.
CITY OF INDUSTRY (18)
Harvey Keitel, Timothy Hutton and Stephen Dorff in a snail-paced heist- gone-wrong caper.
COLD COMFORT FARM (PG) John Schlesinger's lucid adaptation of Stella Gibbons's novel breathes life into the Starkadder stereotypes.
CON AIR (18)
Brutally entertaining thriller about a gang of psychotic convicts who hijack a plane. With John Malkovich and Nicolas Cage.
David Cronenberg's cool, clinical adaptation of JG Ballard's novel. James Spader and Deborah Unger are the alienated couple who find themselves drawn into a circle of auto-erotic fetishists.
THE DEVIL'S OWN (15)
Cop Harrison Ford takes IRA snake Brad Pitt to his bosom in Alan J Pakula's disappointingly superficial thriller.
DONNIE BRASCO (18)
Mike Newell's sombre study of betrayal stars Johnny Depp as undercover FBI man Joe Pistone, and a superbly muted Al Pacino as his mobster mentor.
