Movies to Tape

June 13, 1993|Kevin Thomas

Poison Ivy (Cinemax Wednesday at 10 p.m., Saturday at 10 p.m.). Drew Barrymore stars in Katt Shea's sly and stylish 1992 dark comedy as a teen seductress who infiltrates a massively messed-up L.A. family.

Life Is Sweet (Cinemax Thursday at 5 a.m.). British director Mike Leigh's marvelously eccentric take on a suburban London working-class family dominated by a wondrously twitchy, strident and exceedingly bright teen-ager (Jane Horrocks).

La Notte (Bravo Thursday at 6 p.m., Friday at midnight). This key 1961 Michelangelo Antonioni film of alienation stars Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau as a disaffected couple.

Noises Off (TMC Thursday at 9 p.m.). Peter Bogdanovich's 1992 film of Michael Frayn's celebrated stage farce subtly--and sometimes not so subtly--manages to keep the bulk of the show intact. Carol Burnett and Michael Caine head a cast of stars.
