Midnight at Nitehawk Cinema [Program & Tix]

STARSHIP TROOPERS
Verhoeven | 1997 | US | 129m
Midnight at Nitehawk

““This intergalactic military epic may be the most analytically exacting critique of Fascist aesthetics this side of Susan Sontag. Buzzing with armies of CG insects and enough high-school drama for an outer-space spin off of The O.C., Starship Troopers is at once an anti-imperialist allegory and a mindlessly satisfying piece of schlock. And therein lies the brilliance of Paul Verhoeven, the bastard son of Jerry Bruckheimer and Bertolt Brecht. Its straight-faced subversion of gung-ho militarism is a satire worthy of Swift’s A Modest Proposal.””
Paul Brunick,The L Magazine
