Movies to Tape

September 04, 1988

Pulp (Channel 7 Sunday at 1 p.m.): Mike Hodges' 1972 gangster movie pastiche is uneven but fun all the same. Michael Caine stars. With Mickey Rooney, Lizabeth Scott, Lionel Stander. (2:00)

Songwriter (Channel 2 Tuesday at 12:05 a.m.): Alan Rudolph's good-natured, unjustly neglected backstage look at the country music business, with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Lesley Ann Warren, who seem to be having as good a time as we have in watching them. (2:00)

The Assault (Z Tuesday at at 10:30 p.m.): Directed by the esteemed Fons Rademakers, this 1986 best foreign film Oscar winner represents an attempt to confront Holland's wartime experience--at once a time of suffering and courage, cowardice and shame--under German Occupation. A complex, epic-scale and utterly absorbing film. (2:28)

Studs Lonigan (A&E Wednesday at noon): A real collector's item. Irving Lerner's respected 1960 adaptation of the James T. Farrell novel, with Christopher Knight in the title role. Veteran character actor Dick Foran plays Studs' father, and Jack Nicholson has a small role as one of Studs' pals. (2:00)
