Transcript 10 Montrose voice / Dec. 16,1983 'Yentl' Proves Streisand Can Do Anything Films By Steve Warren Via Gay Press Association Wire Service A new Barbra Streisand movie is greeted in the gay community as an entertainment event equalled only by Bette Midler's monthly book/concert tour and Liza Min- nelli's occasional sneeze. Does Yentl live up to its hype? Creation didn't live up to Yentl's hype, but Yentl comes closer than I thought it would. Yentl is about two subjects close to gay hearts, thoagh^not in the way we usually think of them: cross-dressing and coming out. In eastern Europe in 1904, it was unthinkable for a Jewish girl to be educated—"A woman who Btudies Talmud is a demon"— except in domestic skills. Yentl (Streisand) was different. She was born asking "Why?" and grew up extracting knowledge from her scholarly father (Nehemiah Persoff). When Papa dies, Yentl, rather than board with a neighbor and listen to the local yentas nagging her to marry, cuts her hair and dresses as a boy to get into school. She's taken under the wing of handsome fellow student A vigdor (Mandy Patinkin) and winds up marrying his fiancee Hadass (Amy Irving). Their wedding night may be the most suspenseful scene in any movie this year. Yentl's masquerade and the sexual confusion it creates—"Who knows what's natural?" she asks at one point in a perfectly innocent context—are as funny as the corresponding events of Victor/Victoria and several Shakespearean plays; but they also raise serious issues about male and female roles and the oppression that results when they are rigidly defined. When at last Yentl "comes out" as a woman, she's realized the importance of being herself "No Matter What Happens" (the song could become a gay anthem), because by believing in herself, she can do anything. As director, star, co-writer and - producer, Streisand has also proved she can do anything. Director of photography David Watkin has given the film a beautiful earth-toned look, although the most prominent visual is Streisand's face. With short hair and no obvious makeup, she's not a great advertisement for either gender. Mandy Patinkin's vocal talent goes untapped—the leading lady sings all nine soundalike songs—but his body is displayed to advantage in a nude swimming scene, and he gets to give his most sustained screen performance yet. Amy Irving functions primarily as Yang to Barbra's Yin. Hayes, Remember the Side Door! 1 Miss You a Lot. Love & Kisses, Denys The songs are well integrated, and Streisand's in fine voice, but the music is generally accompanied by montages which slow an already too leisurely pace. If you're not fanatical about Streisand, you'll get more than enough of her in Yentl, but the movie also provides more meaningful entertainment than we had any right to hope for. The beautiful and delicate Hadass (Amy Irving) serves a perfect meal to Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin) and his study partner (Barbra Streisand) in "Yentl," a romantic drama now playing RESTAURANT & VIDEO CABARET 402 LOVETT HOUSTON 527-9866 Dining Room Hours Lunch: 1130 to 3:00 Monday thru Friday Dinner: 7:00 to 11:00 Sunday thru Thursday Dinner: 7:00 to Midnight Friday & Saturday Sunday Brunch: Noon to 3:00 BAJA'S DECEMBER CALENDAR OF EVENTS SUNDAY 11 Brunch 12 to 3pm Popular Rock & dance Video 5pm to close 12 All Night Happy Hour Nostalgia Night (Old Film Clips, Old Music & Midnight Movie) 18 Brunch 12 to 3pm Popular Rock & dance Video 5pm to close 25 Closed till 4pm Popular Rock & dance Video 5pm to close MONDAY 19 All Night Happy Hour Nostalgia Night (Old Film Clips.
