Movies to Tape

June 02, 1996|Kevin Thomas

Fat City (Showtime Monday at 11 a.m.) The 1972 John Huston film is one of his best pictures: a lean, compassionate, detailed, raucous, sad, strong look at some losers and survivors on the side streets of small-city Middle America. Leonard Gardner did the script from his own hard-muscled novel about a pair of boxers in Stockton.

Brazilian classics double feature on TMC Thursday: Carlos Diegues' satirical 1980 Bye Bye Brazil (at 5:25 p.m.) and Bruno Barreto's sexy 1977 Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands (at 7:05 p.m.), starring Sonia Braga.
