Enjoy conversation, wine, and beer after both screenings
Quentin Dupieux, 2014. 95 min. DCP VOSTA.
With Alain Chabat, Jonathan Lambert, Élodie Bouchez.
In French with English subtitles.
A fledgling French filmmaker in California walks into a theater already screening the movie he is in the process of writing. A little girl watches a videotape she found inside a hog’s stomach. A TV host endangers his livelihood by scratching a full-body rash that no one can see. Welcome to the world of Reality: part David Lynch, part Charlie Kaufman, with a pinch of Buñuel and a streak of cruel French humor, this riotously dreamlike Hollywood satire is one of the strangest, most refreshing French comedies of the last decade.
Series curated by Delphine Selles-Alvarez and Léonore Chastagner.
