FILM / The Big Pictures: No Stone unturned: Sheila Johnston reviews Heaven and Earth, the conclusion of Oliver Stone's Vietnam trilogy
Friday 21 January 1994
One day, maybe, some angry young film-maker yet unborn will make a biopic of Oliver Stone. He is, after all, the quintessential angry American anti-hero: Yale drop-out, decorated Vietnam veteran, pothead and, these last few years, self-appointed scourge of the national conscience. In the meantime, Stone has been busily enshrining angry American anti-heroes in films of his own. But, thanks to a tireless talent for self-publicity, he's as celebrated as any of his fictional heroes - in Dave, the comedy about a Presidental doppelganger, he raises a huge laugh in a split-second cameo sending up his own paranoia (he alone rumbles Kevin Kline as an imposter).
FILM / It's not hot and there's no shots in it: Hot Shots: Part Deux] is the latest exercise in movie parody from Jim Abrahams. Kevin Jackson met him
Monday 16 August 1993
CLOSE-UP on Charlie Sheen, tense and sweaty in combat gear, musing about hell being the impossibility of reason. Cut to close-up on Martin Sheen, sweaty and tense in combat gear, musing about his ever-narrowing proximity to the demented Colonel Kurtz. Cut to wide shot of father and son leaping to the sides of their respective patrol boats and yelling in unison 'I loved you in Wall Street]' Surely you recognise the comic trademark? Correct: it's a scene from the latest offering of the Airplane / Naked Gun school - Hot Shots: Part Deux], directed by Jim Abrahams. . . and don't call him Shirley.
FILM / Good Boy, Bad Boy: Hollywood has a quiet obsession with twins. John Lyttle considers the similarities
Friday 09 July 1993
BORIS Karloff's The Black Room (1935) typifies what's expected of the good twin / bad twin, male order. If women compete to personify a deranged ideal of the feminine, then The Black Room is a primitive struggle for macho dominance. Dumas' The Man in the Iron Mask is perhaps the most naked expression of the equation. It takes the Three Musketeers to save Philippe (Louis Hayward) from conniving Louis XIV and restore the throne of France to order.
FILM / The Hollywood home movie show: The appearance of Depardieu pere et fils in Tous Les Matins du Mondes continues a long and occasionally dishonourable film tradition. John Lyttle uproots a family tree of sibling rivalries
Monday 04 January 1993
TWO well-worn routes to film fame: the casting couch and the crib. Both involve a lot of lying about on your back and playing dumb while people loom over you making silly faces, but the crib leaves you with your virtue intact. And if Daddy isn't about to buy you a mockingbird, then he should at least arrange a screen test, shouldn't he?
