Movie to Tape

September 21, 1997|Kevin Thomas

The Belly of an Architect (KTLA early Saturday at 3 a.m.) Ever-audacious British filmmaker Peter Greenaway's 1987 production is a real you'll-either-hate-it-or-love-it kind of film, and even those of us who love it would be hard put to claim that it is flawless. Brian Dennehy, in what will surely always be among the most bravura performances of his career, plays an eminent architect coming unglued in Rome, where he's curating an exhibition. It's a grand, operatic pageant of a film, posing big questions about art, life, love and mortality.
