MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS presents:
A Genuine Tribute to Gus Van Sant
35mm Double Bill
In preparation for Gus Van Sant’s newest film DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT, starring Joaquin Phoenix & Rooney Mara and premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, come out to the first of many double bills celebrating this unique and thoroughly American Independent filmmaker.
7:00 TO DIE FOR (1995)
This salacious satire showcases perhaps Nicole Kidman’s greatest performance as a seriously psychotic meteorologist. Based on the factual story of Pamela Smart, screenwriter Buck Henry (THE GRADUATE) helps create a quintessential mockumentary that brilliantly explores the pitfalls of a fame-obsessed society, while delivering some of the most mean-spirited laughs of the decade. Throw in the priceless performances by a 21-year-old Joaquin Phoenix, Matt Dillon and Illeana Douglas as well as a killer score by Danny Elfman and you’ve got a event you don’t want to miss! 106 minutes. 35mm print courtesy of Sony. Preceded by other Gus Van Sant trailers.
With Anne Heche, Vince Vaughn, Julianne Moore, Viggo Mortensen, William H. Macy
Come celebrate the 20th Anniversary of one of the most infamous feature length experiments ever made within the Hollywood system. After directing the Oscar winning GOOD WILL HUNTING, Gus Van Sant was given the opportunity to boldly tackle Alfred Hitchcock’s beloved Black & White 1960 Horror classic, by filming a shot-for-shot remake in color, using A-list Hollywood actors. Updating the time period to the late-1990s and led by Christopher Doyle’s crisp cinematography and Tom Foden’s prized production design, this audacious undertaking deserves to be reevaluated for the misunderstood masterpiece that it is. This is the VERY FiRST THEATRiCAL 35MM SCREENiNG since the film’s release in 1998. 105 minutes. 35mm print courtesy of Universal/Focus. Preceded by other forgotten remake trailers.
