Paul Bartel's "Scenes From the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills" (selected theaters) should have the wide-eyed wickedness that seems to seep right through the films of Pedro Almodovar. It's almost as bizarro: a farce turning on the pan-sexual lust of a collection of high- and low-rent characters in and around the manicured hills of Beverly. They include a sitcom queen (Jacqueline Bisset), just widowed; her next-door neighbor (Mary Woronov), only recently divorced; the housemen of both women (Robert Beltran and Ray Sharkey, respectively)
