Socialist Worker


Issue No. 1685


JOURNEY TO SHILOH (Thurs, 3.30pm, C5). An interesting 1960s Western film. 

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME (Fri, 9pm, C4). The return of this great comedy show. 

HEAVEN'S GATE (Sat, 12.45am, C5). This film nearly bankrupted United Artists and was slated by every major reviewer, but don't let that put you off. This is a powerful film about dirt-poor immigrant workers who are exterminated by cattle barons at the turn of the century. The last stand is one of the most powerful scenes in cinematic history. A visual delight. Whatever you do, don't miss this. 

CHUNGKING EXPRESS (Tues, 11.35pm, C4). An excellent movie from Hong Kong about two lonely cops each falling for the wrong women. The music score will haunt you for days.
