BATMAN (1966)
1966, 20th Century Fox, 105 min, USA, Dir: Leslie Martinson

The "Batman" TV show spawned this feature-length opus, bringing to the big screen more tongue-in-cheek antics from Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) as they battle a villainous alliance of the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), the Joker (Cesar Romero), the Riddler (Frank Gorshin) and Catwoman (Lee Meriwether).


KING LEAR
1987, Park Circus, 90 min, USA, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Shakespeare’s tragedy serves as a jumping-off point for this strange deconstruction of film and storytelling. Noted theater director Peter Sellars stars as a descendant of the Bard of Avon working to restore his ancestor’s plays in a postapocalyptic world; he finds inspiration in gangster Don Learo (Burgess Meredith) and his daughter (Molly Ringwald). Norman Mailer and Woody Allen appear in bizarre cameos.
