A Gato Barbieri performance is not so much a jazz concert as it is a geothermal incident. The Argentine tenor saxophonist certainly has his jazz credentials, having worked with a range spanning Lalo Schifrin and avant garde trumpeter Don Cherry before taking off on his own in 1969. But the sound pouring from his instrument's bell at the Coach House Friday evening was nothing short of a volcanic eruption. The U.S.

It's school time again, and even those without children are reminded of that by the big yellow buses back on the street and the increase in traffic. It's all part of the excitement--and anxiety--that a new school year in Los Angeles brings. Los Angeles Unified School District, still feeling the effects of crippling budget problems and a bitter labor dispute, has openings for 650 teachers. Many teachers left the district after a 10% pay cut.

Movie critic Pauline Kael is not known for gushing, but when "Last Tango in Paris" came out in 1972, she went into an uncustomary swoon. In a long piece in the New Yorker that was as much essay as critique, she wrote that Bernardo Bertolucci's film "has made the strongest impression on me in almost 20 years of reviewing." The picture caused more than a sensation with the formidable Ms. Kael.

It was business as usual at the Monterey Festival over the weekend. The venerable event celebrated its 38th installment with a characteristic array of music that included everything from Dixieland and be-bop to mainstream and acid jazz. What was missing was any real sense of innovation.

Much of the interest in "Loulou," Maurice Pialat's 1980 movie about hard-nosed romance, comes from watching French stars Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert at earlier, less commercial plateaus in their careers. Pialat, a former painter known for the earnest realism of his films, tells the story of Nelly (Huppert) and Loulou (Depardieu), a pair of lovers who connect despite the disadvantage of having little in common besides a flash point of sexual attraction.

"Savage Nights," the born-to-be-controversial French film, teaches several lessons, most of them unintentional. * It shows how a sensation in one culture can turn wearing in another, that a story nominally about AIDS may be about something else entirely and, contrary to what so many movies have indicated, that having a fatal illness does not necessarily ennoble the person involved.

Without much apparent fuss, one of the last great movie taboos is being tossed to the winds. Recently, in film after film from France and Scandinavia, the boundaries between hard-core pornography and regular art-house movie fare have been all but erased. In "Intimacy," a new, unreleased-in-the-U.S. British film from French director Patrice Chereau, a taxi driver's wife and a barman meet regularly for a Wednesday-afternoon rendezvous in the barman's flat.

Beyond anything else, Marlon Brando is the towering original who came out of the Midwest 58 years ago and electrified Broadway and then Hollywood with the visceral excitement and veracity of his acting.

Even now, he seesaws between living legend and butt of late-night jokes.
