Cult favorite films return to the big screen every month at the Angelika Mosaic. Films that are guaranteed to make you go “Ooooh, I love that one!” — even if the mainstream media didn’t upon its initial release.
The epic spring lineup kicks off with FIGHT CLUB this weekend. Join us Friday & Saturday @ 11:45PM, and mark your calendars for upcoming screenings:
FIGHT CLUB (1999) – February 27 & 28
Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, and Helena Bonham Carter star in some of their most iconic roles in FIGHT CLUB, a darkly comic drama directed by David Fincher and based on the novel by cult favorite author Chuck Palahniuck. A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground “fight clubs” forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion.
THE BIG LEBOWSKI (1998) – March 25 & 26
This Coen Brothers cult classic follows the Dude – an unemployed slacker with a penchant for bowling, played by Jeff Bridges. After a case of mistaken identity he goes on a quest to get a new rug and gets pulled into a ransom scheme involving the Big Lebowski’s kidnapped trophy wife. The all-star cast includes John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, Phillip Seymor Hoffman and John Turturro.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971) – April 29 & 30
From Legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick comes this tale of a dystopian future where society is overrun by youthful rebellion and violence. The film follows Alex, played by Malcolm McDowell, as he and his gang go on a horrific crime spree that includes rape and murder. This leads to his capture and controversial rehabilitation using psychological conditioning. One of Kubrick’s best film’s during the height of his career, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE surely should not be missed.
RESERVOIR DOGS (1992) – May 27 & 28
Thrumming with intelligence and energy, RESERVOIR DOGS transformed Quentin Tarantino practically overnight from an obscure, unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor to the most influential new filmmaker of the 1990s. The story looks at what happens before and after (but not during) a botched jewelry store robbery. Starring Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Lawrence Tierney, Michael Madsen, and Harvey Keitel.
CLERKS (1994) – June 24 & 25
Filmed in black-and-white on a budget of only $27,000, CLERKS began the career of writer director Kevin Smith. When Dante Hicks is reluctantly put in charge of the Quick Stop market on his day off, he tries, though half-heartedly, to perform his minimum-wage duties as efficiently as possible. Meanwhile, his friend and alter ego Randall is working behind the counter of the adjacent video store — at least when he feels like it. Much of the film consists of Randall and Dante’s criticism of their customers, their lives, and the world in general.
Angelika After Hours screens one Friday & Saturday @ 11:45PM, each month at the Angelika Mosaic. Tickets just $7!
