    • 1988 June 17, Fred Camper, “Wide West”, Chicago Reader:

    • 1988 June 17, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “Daisies”, Chicago Reader:
      Featuring two uninhibited young women who are both named Marie--whose various escapades, which add up less to a plot than to a string of outrageous set pieces, include several antiphallic gags, and a free-for-all with fancy food rivaling Laurel and Hardy that got Chytilova in lots of trouble with the authorities--this is a disturbing yet liberating tour de force from a talented director showing what she can do with freedom.

    • 1988 June 17, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “Double Deals”, Chicago Reader:
      In the case of Red Heat, director and cowriter Walter Hill, who initiated this project and certainly has auteurist credentials, couldn't put much of his stamp on the proceedings, and it's questionable whether anyone engaged to write and/or direct a future Schwarzenegger project would be able to do much better.

  10. coproduced
    • 1988 June 17, Jonathan Rosenbaum, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”, Chicago Reader:
      The movie, which combines live-action and animation with breathtaking wizardry, was coproduced by the studios of Disney and Spielberg, and although Robert Zemeckis is the director, and the script is by Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman (based on a novel by Gary K. Wolf), another way of interpreting the title is to read it in cartoon terms as an inquiry into how one makes an old-style studio blockbuster without an auteur. In this respect, the "framer" of Roger Rabbit is a platoon of committed and talented individuals united by their love for both film noir and the Hollywood cartoon. As a tribute to the lost splendors (and characters) of both forms, this labor of love is deeply moving: in the world of the film, cartoon characters are treated like a repressed minority threatened by genocide, and gumshoes out of Raymond Chandler (or even Robert Towne) are almost equally archaic. Giving them both one last, delirious fling, the filmmakers create a densely upholstered universe where the denizens of both worlds are allowed to mingle and learn from one another; and a villain from the days of silent movies (Christopher Lloyd's Judge Doom) is thrown in for good measure. Alternately hilarious, frightening, and awesome, this is the richest new movie around. (Starts Wednesday, Norridge, Old Orchard, Hillside Square)

      To his credit, Hildebrand excels at directing the group members: his stagings of the large second- and third-act choruses are strong and visually dynamic, and the tableau he has devised as a backdrop to the opening song, "Mack the Knife," is a stunning theatrical realization of 20s expressionism.
