London Lite Tuesday, 20 October 2009 19 TELEVISION Filmchoice FILM RATINGS excellent very good good average poor KEY (R)repeat (S)subtitles on text service Cabaret BBC4, 10.30pm (1972) THIS is probably the best musical to watch for those who dont like musicals. Set in pre-war Nazi Germany, it follows a love triangle between an American woman and her (you guessed it) TWO lovers. The outstanding star turn of Liza Minnelli, above, often overshadows the brilliant performances of Michael York and (especially) Joel Grey. Kiss The Girls Film4, 9pm (1997) ANYONE who loves all CSI TV series will go for this psychological thriller. When the potential victim of a serial killer manages to escape, she helps forensic psychologist and special crime investigator Dr Alex Cross to hunt the psycho down. Not as good as The Silence Of The Lambs (1991) or Se7en (1995) -- but it does star Morgan Freeman, above, which is a good start. Scream 2 Five USA, 9pm (1997) MOST of the original cast return for this silly slasher sequel. Played for both frights and laughs, the characters openly discuss the rules of horror films -- especially sequels -- and how they can stupidly set themselves up as the next victim. Legendary horror director Wes Craven hits paydirt with this tongue-in-cheeck approach. Stars Neve Campbell, above. Firestarter ITV4, 11.10pm (1984) SHES a fire starter, a twisted fire starter... Drew Barrymore, above, stars in this interesting sci-fi thriller. A couple who participated in an experiment in the Sixties (who didnt, eh?) have a child who can start fires with her mind. And you wouldnt think butterd melt in her mouth. Now a stack of people are trying to control or kill her. Also stars Martin Sheen and George C Scott.
