BAD LIEUTENANT/BLUE COLLAR
Sunday & Monday, August 29 & 30
NOT NECESSARILY NOIR
In a singular blast of furious energy Harvey Keitel sprang to the forefront of American screen actors with this scorching portrayal of the eponymous nameless police lieutenant who has succumbed completely to a life of crack-fuelled dangerous sex. (His addiction to sports betting almost seems inconsequential by comparison.) But this is more than a mere stunt job on the part of its bombastic star or its notorious director. It remains what it has always been: a brutal cinematic manifesto and one of the most radically honest films ever made about personal redemption. Co-starring Victor Argo, Paul Calderon, and Zoe Lund, all of whom worked on the screenplay with the director, Abel Ferrara. In COLOR. 35mm print. 96 mins (NC-17) version. 1992. SUN at 3:45 and 8:00; MON at 8:00 only!
A trio of disenchanted and financially strapped Detroit autoworkers stumble into a black hole of desperation and paranoia when they bungle the robbery of their local union office. A startling, dark vision of the fateful upending of the American Dream, this potent social drama went relatively unnoticed upon its initial release. Now, over thirty years later its acrid message resounds louder than ever. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of the 70s most thought-provoking films on the big screen! Starring Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel, and Yaphet Kotto. Written and directed by Paul Schrader. In COLOR. 35mm Studio Print. 114 mins. 1978. SUN at 1:30, 5:45 and 9:50; MON at 5:45 and 9:50
