Burn. Gillo Pontecorso of Battle of Algiers fame directed this Marxist-Fanonian Parable of revolution on a Portuguese-colonized island in the Caribbean in the mid nineteenth century. The story cluntsily parallels Vietnam, the Phillipines, et al., but Marlon Brando gives a superb performance as a British mercenary agent provocateur, and the direction is sensuously beautiful. With Vlva Zapsta. Elia Kazan's exciting but absurd film of a John Steinbeck script, full of take feeling for the Mexican little guy. Still, there's a young, dynamic Brando as Emiliano, and Anthony Quinn as his brother. ORSON WELLES CINEMA ONE. Call 868-3600.

To Have and Have Not. On re-viewing, the film is disappointingly dull. Howard Hawks directed uninspiredly. Bogart looks tired, even the Faulkner quips aren't so hot. Lauren Bacall remains smashing. So does Take the Money and Run, a filmed string of Woody Allen routines written and directed by... Woody Allen. HARVARD SQUARE THEATER. Have: 3:25, 6:35, 9:45. Take: 2, 5:10, 8:20.

Le Jour Se Leve. Classic French romance written and directed by the Children of Paradise team. Jacques Prevert and Marcel Carne, and starring Jean Galsin, SYMPHONY CINEMA ONE., Tuesday, 6, 8, and 10 p.m.

Grand Illusion One of Renoir's knockouts, Ostensibly the first POW escape movie, set behind the lines in Germany during World War I, it is just as much a commentary on declining class mores--the end of the aristocracy and the rise of the mechanic. With Jean Gabin, Eric von Stroheim. Marcel Dalio. SYMPHONY CINEMA ONE. Wednesday and Thursday, 6, 8 and 10 p.m. Midnight Cowboy. John Schlesinger directed this intermittently moving but sometimes crude and gimmicky platonic Love Story between two buddy-buddy freak types on the fringes of Manhattan society. Superlatively acted by Jon Voight as a frustrated lexas stud and Dustin Hoffman as the down-on-his-luck cripple he joins forces with. Also, Carl Reiner's Where's Poppa, a tasteless but hilarious comedy of mother hate, starring George Segal and Ruth Gordon. CINEMA 733. Wednesday and Thursday. Call 266-0342.

Wild Child. Truffaut's fine chronicle of a wolf-child's education in enlightened eighteenth century France. Truflaut himself stars as Dr. Jean hard: Jean-Pierre Cargol is splendid as his lupine charge. With Stolen Kisses, a Truffaut of a slighter stripe. CINEMA 733. Tuesday. Call 266-0342.

White Sheikh--The first film directed solo by Federico Fellini and one of his best, a hilarious comedy of misdirected lower-middle-class romance. With I Vitelloni, another of the great Fellinis, dealing with lives stifled in the Italian seacoast town of Rimini. BRATTLE. Sheikh: 8. Vitelloni: 6:15, 9:30.
