MOVIE NETWORK - MARCH 2001 HIGHLIGHTS

MOVIE OF THE MONTH:
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL
Directed by and starring Roberto Benigni

Australian TV Premiere: Movie One 8.30pm 25/3/01 Screening Times
EDITOR'S CHOICE:
10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU
Stars Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles
"Sharper and cooler than your average teen romantic comedy, with some genuine characterisation Ė superbly realised by Heath Ledger" - Andrew L. Urban Screening Times
AFTERGLOW
Stars Julie Christie and Nick Nolte
"This marvellous film is emotionally gripping, intellectually satisfying and profoundly moving" - Andrew L. Urban Screening Times
ANALYZE THIS
Stars Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal
"Much more than a one-gag movie, it cleverly combines wit, slapstick and glib one liners which are tossed around as casually as a light crepe" - Louise Keller Screening Times
HILARY AND JACKIE
Stars Rachel Griffiths and Emily Watson
"It moves and is also moving, and takes us into the physically as well as emotionally different places of Jackieís life with great success" - Andrew L. Urban Screening Times
HURLY BURLY
Stars Kevin Spacey and Sean Penn
"Itís an actorís party. Sean Penn gets to completely self-destruct about once every scene; Kevin Spacey delivers snide putdowns like a Californian George Sanders" - Jake Wilson Screening Times
INTERVIEW, THE
Stars Hugo Weaving and Tony Martin
"The Interview is gripping entertainment, powerful movie making and thrilling drama; it leaves quite a few questions behind, which is not what we expect from an interview" - Andrew L. Urban Screening Times
LOVE IS THE DEVIL
Stars Derek Jacobi and Tilda Swinton
"Derek Jacobi gives a performance that grips the jugular and stops the blood flow. Itís a harsh portrayal; the callousness of the man blasts through the air like a tornado and leaves a sting" - Louise Keller Screening Times
SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER AND UNCUT
Produced by Matt Stone and Trey Parker
"It runs for just 88 minutes but contains more ideas (and with 20 tracks, a lot more music) than three other movies put together" - Andrew L. Urban Screening Times
SPANISH PRISONER, THE
Stars Campbell Scott & Steve Martin, Directed by David Mamet
"The ironies of lifeís conspiracies interwoven with the man-made ones, form a gripping, mystifying, compulsive thriller which hooks the viewer from the start" - Louise Keller Screening Times
SUMMER OF SAM
Stars John Leguizamo, Directed by Spike Lee
"This powerful depiction of a city slowly combusting under the pressure of sweltering heat is tour de-force filmmaking from a director totally in command of the medium" - Richard Kuipers Screening Times
WELCOME TO WOOP WOOP
Stars Rod Taylor & Susie Porter, Directed by Stephan Elliot
"Woop Woop is a romp - it's not for everyone, but those who jump aboard the ride, will be blown away by the absurdity of it all" - Louise Keller Screening Times
