Movies to Tape

October 07, 1990

Compromising Positions (Channel 13 Sunday at 3 p.m.) Frank Perry's 1985 film of Susan Isaacs' novel is a blithe, sparkling, sophisticated comedy-mystery laced with dark humor and starring Susan Sarandon as an ex-newspaper reporter, now housewife and mother, who can't resist poking into the murder of her dentist (Joe Mantegna), the Lothario of Long Island.

Irreconcilable Differences (Channel 13 Sunday at 6 p.m.), one of the wittiest Hollywood movies of the '80s, stars Ryan O'Neal and Shelley Long as a struggling director and his screenwriter wife whose lives spin out of control when O'Neal finally gets his big break. Drew Barrymore plays their feisty little daughter.

Rashomon (TNT cable Sunday at 11:30 p.m.) The Akira Kurosawa 1951 classic in which four people give varying accounts of a rape-murder. Toshiro Mifune and Machiko Kyo star.

You and Me (Showtime pay TV Tuesday at 10 a.m.) One of the least-known Fritz Lang films, an uncharacteristic Runyonesque tale starring George Raft as an ex-con falling in love Sylvia Sidney while unaware of her similar past. With songs by Kurt Weill.
