A Scanner Darkly

A part of our Science on Screen series!

Depending on who you ask, this is either a paranoid, digressive, woozily-rotoscoped drug trip, or the most ambitious Philip K. Dick adaptation since Blade Runner. In the near future, a deep-cover narcotics officer has befriended his targets and become an addict, but in an omniscient surveillance state, he may already be irrelevant.

Coming Soon • May 27–Jun 2

eXistenZ

A part of our Science on Screen series!

In Cronenberg's most elaborate work of crypto-pornographic body horror, a video-game designer flees an assassin in the virtual reality she coded. Unlike so much metal-and-LED VR, one joins the game through excretory-looking "bio-ports" and shoots guns made of flesh and bone: rather than ask about the humanity of machines, Cronenberg asks about the machinery of humans.

Coming Soon • Jun 26–Jun 27

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

It is impossible to remember cinema before Sergio Leone; it is impossible to even imagine the Western without him. This is the first of Leone’s mature works: an excruciatingly tense epic, alternating monstrous landscapes and intimate close-ups. During the Civil War, three bandits form and dissolve allegiances in their hunt for lost Confederate gold. Leone spits in the eye of American imperialism—and the Western genre itself.

Coming Soon • Jun 26–Jul 25

Six-Gun Summer

Over the summer, The Nick will be showing a series of five classic Westerns from a time of radical change in the genre, that bountiful period between Tinsel Town rah-rah shoot-’em-ups, and the trippy-hippy decadence of the Acid Western.

Coming Soon • Jul 1

Cool as Ice

Part of our recurring Lowbrow Cinema Explosion series!

A rap-oriented remake of "The Wild One," with heavy emphasis on the fact that rap star Vanilla Ice has assumed the Marlon Brando role.

Coming Soon • Jul 3–Jul 4

True Grit

In many ways, this is the last of the classic Westerns. Spaghetti Westerns were asserting themselves and would soon evolve into the Acid Western. But here we have John Wayne orating and shooting his way into “Indian Territory” on behalf of his young charge, who chases after her father’s murderer. Its stylized dialogue, blacklisted screenwriter, and unheroic hero gesture toward changing Western taste, but True Grit is something of a last stand.

Coming Soon • Jul 10–Jul 11

High Noon

Playing out in real-time, the screws slowly tighten on the sheriff of a small town as he realizes he must face a group of bandits alone. Though a perennial favorite of U.S. presidents, John Wayne called it “the most un-American thing” he’d ever seen. Its screenwriter was nearly blacklisted, but the Soviet Union criticized the film’s “glorification of the individual.” And yet, we all see the same thing: the nerve-jangling study of a man sweating bullets, until he has to shoot them.

Coming Soon • Jul 17–Jul 18

Once Upon a Time in the West

This is Sergio Leone’s masterpiece, an epic canvas painted by a miniaturist, vast and detailed. Each scene has the precision of a train conductor’s pocket watch, ticking until someone shoots a hole through it. An outlaw militia must defend a small farm from real estate speculators and their hired gun, the desert West simmering with the arrival of merciless capitalism, undeveloped imperialism, and violent ritual.

Coming Soon • Jul 24–Jul 25

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Robert Redford and Paul Newman reimagine the derring-do of outlaws as buddy-movie hijinks, playing the historical icons as celebrities. When their daring robberies land them on the wrong side of a railroad tycoon, the duo makes haste to Bolivia, hiding from a “superposse” of moguls they’ve wronged. They attempt to elude capture, but their past bears down on them, on horseback.

Coming Soon • Jul 31

Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.
