69

NWFF’s yearlong retrospective of films made in 1969 continues with a pair of countercultural antiwar flicks. Directed by Arthur Penn, Alice's Restaurant is the unlikely yet successful adaptation of Arlo Guthrie's anti-Vietnam-War-draft anthem (starring Guthrie). Following is the British anti-World War I satire Oh! What a Lovely War, directed by Richard Attenborough, and based on the stage play. You can draw your own parallels to the wars of today. Series resumes on Feb. 13. (NR) BRIAN MILLER
