About this event:
1985, dir. Martin Scorsese; Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Teri Garr, Verna Bloom (97 min.)
This underrated black comedy from Martin Scorsese was screened in fall 2000 during the film series’ inaugural semester, in a year devoted to “cities.” Scorsese’s film chronicles one night in the life of a meek New York City computer operator who uncharacteristically, impetuously accepts the invitation of a woman he meets in a coffee shop. One cab ride later, he finds himself trapped in the mean streets of SoHo, and his late-night odyssey introduces him to bagel-shaped ceramic paperweights, angry street mobs, and the joys of a Mohawk haircut. Is that all there is?
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
