DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 110 min, USA, Dir: Frank Oz

Muppet master Frank Oz proves equally talented directing human beings in this gloriously entertaining comedy. Michael Caine is a con man in the South of France who preys on ridiculously rich women; when he’s rudely challenged by a crass American (Steve Martin), a contest ensues targeting wealthy Glenne Headly.


CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS
1989, MGM Repertory, 104 min, USA, Dir: Woody Allen

Comedy is tragedy plus time.” Successful ophthalmologist and wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing Judah Rosenthal (Martin Landau) is in a bind when longtime mistress Dolores (Anjelica Huston), fed up with years of noncommitment and empty promises, threatens to go to his wife with the truth. While Judah considers a wickedly devastating solution to his problem, documentary filmmaker Clifford Stern (Woody Allen) must put aside his passion project about a philosophy professor and instead profile his successful weasel of a brother-in-law Lester (Alan Alda). All of Allen’s hilariously hyperbolic obsessions are in fine form here - religion, guilt, sex, death, disgust with the mainstream - but darkly tainted with a bleakness rarely seen in his career of filmmaking.
