WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS(PG-13)
And playing at the DFT this Weekend
(France/1963—restored—directed by Jean-Luc Godard)
Jean-Luc Godard’s subversive Contempt is a star-studded CinemaScope epic, a brilliantly personal work of art and perhaps the most fully realized of the director’s career. Contempt (Le Mépris) stars Michel Piccoli as a screenwriter torn between the demands of a proud director (played by legendary Fritz Lang), an arrogant American producer (Jack Palance, whose sentiments include “I like gods. I know exactly how they feel”), and his disillusioned wife (Brigitte Bardot), as he doctors the script for a new film version of The Odyssey. A brilliantly elliptical study of marital breakdown and artistic compromise, Contempt is also one of the most physically ravishing widescreen films ever made. The dazzling color cinematography by Raoul Coutard has been restored in this new, eye-popping 35mm print. (103 min.)
And Saturday Monster Movie
In The Deadly Mantis (1957)
a prehistoric praying mantis the size of an extra-large earthmover is released from an iceberg where he’s been slumbering in suspended animation for ages; he quickly gets to work laying waste to Washington and New York, and seems to be planning total bug domination of the world. The heroic scientist is played by Craig Stevens, star of TV’s popular Peter Gunn. (79 min.)
The Monolith Monsters
probably the most unique monster concept of the era—stars Grant Williams (The Incredible Shrinking Man) as a geologist who races against time to stop the invasion of deadly rocks from space that expand at a fantastic rate, smashing everything in their path and turning towns and people to stone!
The DFT will also welcome TV20's NIGHTMARE SINEMA host WOLMAN MAC, who will appear live to introduce the double feature! (78 min.)
