Afi Film Fest: The Final Week

March 22, 1987|MICHAEL WILMINGTON

T he following are capsule reviews of this week's screenings at the AFI Film Festival of Los Angeles. Screenings take place at the Los Feliz Theater, 1822 N. Vermont Ave., Hollywood, except where noted. Tickets and information: (213) 520-2000 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. SUNDAY

"Odd Birds" (U.S.A., 1985, 8:30 p.m., Barnsdall Gallery Theater). Jeanne Collachia's debut feature has a signally inappropriate flaw: This film about a young Chinese-American girl in the '60s, who aspires to the theater, contains some of the worst acting imaginable--despite the presence of Michael Moriarty, as a benevolent young church brother, to drag the whole average up. The soapily upbeat story line is no help, nor is the "Flashdance/Chorus Line" climax--but score a few points for decent intent.
