A who’s who of postwar Euro stars—including Fernando Rey, Delphine Seyrig, Stéphane Audran, and Bulle Ogier—convene for a swank dinner party that never occurs, their attempts to sit down to a meal thwarted by a series of increasingly absurdist interruptions: an inedible roast, a dead host, a police raid, a stranger arriving to tell the tale of his murderous youth... A drawing room comedy of unflappable upper-crust manners played according to dream logic, this is perhaps the most subversive film ever to win an Oscar—much to Buñuel’s horror!

CRASH (1996 / 35mm Print)

Sat Feb 9th 9pm / Metrograph, New York City

No, not that CRASH that oddly won the Best Picture Oscar.. In this “masterful minimalist adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1973 neo-futurist novel about sex and car crashes,” per critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, David Cronenberg’s Crash is a concert of flesh and steel, a cautionary tale of machine age eroticism that doubles as an enticing invitation, with Spader as a film producer who, after a head-on smash-up, finds himself drawn into an underground society of men and women who fetishize auto collisions. The movie that gives a whole new meaning to “sex drive.”
