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.
