Cinematographer Richard Crudo, president of the ASC, will introduce the Woody Allen comedy BROADWAY DANNY ROSE - a film he worked on with Gordon Willis, whose B&W imagery lends a nostalgic glow. It's followed by mockumentary ZELIG, which earned Willis an Oscar nomination and stars Allen as the titular human chameleon.
Graham Chapman has the titular role as Jesus' next-door neighbor in LIFE OF BRIAN, one of the most hilariously dangerous comedies ever. It's followed by Cannes Grand Prix winner MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE.
In director Michelangelo Antonioni’s first color film, Monica Vitti stars as Giuliana, a wife and mother living near a petrochemical plant in northern Italy. Though Giuliana feels profoundly alienated, the attentions of her husband’s business associate (Richard Harris) do little to relieve her loneliness.
“You can expect a little comedy, a lot of pathos, a lot of music and a tiny bit of ancient sex … and maybe some cross-dressing,” noted the Monty Python troupe of their first live stage performance in more than 30 years, recorded at London’s O2 Arena in July. Join us for the funniest night of the year - the final reunion of John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin!
