We’re thrilled to announce a complete re-design of the American Cinematheque website. See The New Site Now >
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.


BANANAS
1971, Park Circus/MGM, 82 min, USA, Dir: Woody Allen

In hopes of impressing a girl (Louise Lasser) passionate for political activism, heartbroken Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) travels to the minuscule Latin American nation of San Marcos, where he gets involved with the rebel movement and ultimately becomes the country's president.


ANNIE HALL
1977, Park Circus, 93 min, USA, Dir: Woody Allen

Director Woody Allen stars as neurotic comedian Alvy Singer in this Oscar-winning comedy classic, in which he leads the viewer through the ups and downs of his relationship with Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) to explore what led to its demise. Bursting with comic bravura and insights into love among the neurotics, ANNIE HALL deservedly walked off with the Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actress (Diane Keaton), Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (Allen and Marshall Brickman), plus a nomination for Best Actor (Woody Allen). With Tony Roberts, Paul Simon, Shelley Duvall and Carol Kane.
