Description

FRIDAY AUGUST 16 DOUBLE FEATURE

BAND OF OUTSIDERS 6:30
Four years after Breathless, Jean-Luc Godard reimagined the gangster film even more radically with Band of Outsiders (Bande à part). In it, two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of both of their fancies (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery – in her own home. This audacious and wildly entertaining French New Wave gem is at once sentimental and insouciant, effervescently romantic and melancholy, and it features some of Godard’s most memorable set pieces, including the headlong race through the Louvre and the unshakably cool Madison dance sequence. –Criterion Collection (1964, in French with English subtitles, 95 min, DCP)

+ PULP FICTION 8:20
A most eclectic cast is among the many highlights of Quentin Tarantino’s obsessively stylized – and insanely influential – crime saga. Charting intersecting storylines of Los Angeles mobsters, fringe players, small-time criminals, and a mysterious briefcase, the film was nominated for 7 Oscars – QT and Roger Avery’s screenplay won the gold. Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Tim Roth, and Amanda Plummer head the cast. (1994, 154 min, 35mm ‘Scope)
