Cinema: Stallone and Liotta pull their paunches

Stallone. Liotta. Keitel. De Niro. Say them out loud in the husky transatlantic tones of the man on the legendary Denim advert. Impressive, isn't it? These men are icons of masculinity, a gang of guys who've come to personify a buckish true grit that's made them Pub Man's eternal pin- ups. But did you know they have a combined age of 207?

THEATRE / The hollow man: Paul Taylor on Richard Eyre's production of Macbeth at the Olivier

Prophecies, as Macbeth amply demonstrates, should be met with a certain caution. So I should have been more on my guard when friends and colleagues confidently predicted that I'd be hankering for the exit during Richard Eyre's new Olivier staging of the tragedy, a production that opened, to a generally hostile press, a fortnight ago while I was on holiday.

FILM / A walk on the wilder side: 'New Queer Cinema' or 'homo pomo' rejects the political correctness of the 'concerned' gay films of the Eighties in favour of reuniting the sinful old bedfellows of sex and crime. Sheila Johnston reports

Two gay lovers murder a little boy for kicks. A couple diagnosed as HIV-positive make off on a crime spree. A prisoner rapes a fellow-convict with whom he has become sexually obsessed. An airline steward wakes up from a one-night-stand to find that his lover has deliberately infected him with Aids. More examples of Hollywood's rampant homophobia in the wake of Basic Instinct, The Silence of the Lambs and JFK? No, all these criminal customers appear in recent films - respectively, Poison, The Living End, Swoon and Via Appia - by young, gay film-makers.
