LAND PASSION WAR OF THE DEAD CHRIST WORLDS

*Critic J. Hoberman presents
“Film Comment Selects”

10:00* at FSLC

“Explore the movi-verse, relive the horror of the Bush years—Katrina, Iraq, 9/11, all allegorized and superimposed! Ken Jacobs’s A Good Night for the Movies changed the world and showed the way. Now, hysteria reigns, synchronicity rules, and consciousness gets crazy mixed-up! Based on 25 years of stunt projections and class presentations at NYU and Cooper Union. It’s Doomsday USA, starring Asia Argento, Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Dennis Hopper, and the mind of Mel ‘Mad Max’ Gibson. With subtitles!”
