Movies to Tape

April 25, 1993|Kevin Thomas

Irreconcilable Differences (KCOP Sunday at 2 p.m.) Ryan O'Neal and Shelley Long star as a struggling director and his screenwriter-wife whose lives spin out of control when O'Neal finally gets his big break. This 1984 release is one of the wittiest Hollywood movies of the '80s. With Drew Barrymore as their daughter.

Down Argentine Way (AMC Sunday at 5 p.m.) This 1940 Fox Technicolor musical, a breezy but engaging trifle, finds Don Ameche's dashing Argentine horse-breeder the perfect foil for American-as-apple-pie horse-lover Betty Grable.

Mystery Train (Bravo Wednesday at 8 p.m.) Jim Jarmusch reveals a genius for mixing up the mundane with the spiritual in this beautiful 1989 release, a jewel-like minimalist film about a group of crisscrossing tourists and outlaws during a lyrically strange day and night in Memphis.

The Killer (Cinemax Thursday at 1:30 a.m.) Ace Hong Kong filmmaker John Woo plays sentimentality and violence against each other with stunning effectiveness in this tale of a hired killer (Chow Yun-Fat) trying to redeem himself for accidentally blinding a nightclub singer. Note: the 1989 film has been dubbed into English.
