BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY
1991, Park Circus/MGM, 93 min, USA, Dir: Peter Hewitt

As their saga continues, Bill & Ted have created a utopia through music - but it’s threatened when a malcontent (Joss Ackland) sends evil robotic versions of the two back through time to sabotage their pivotal performance at the San Dimas Battle of the Bands. Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves and George Carlin reprise their roles in this even more surreal sequel to EXCELLENT ADVENTURE.


BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 90 min, USA, Dir: Stephen Herek

In this cult comedy favorite, teen slackers Bill Preston (Alex Winter) and Ted Logan (Keanu Reeves) could fail their history class unless they get a good grade on their oral report. But the stakes are even higher for the future of humanity, so the duo are given a time-traveling phone booth (manned by George Carlin), which introduces them to such historical figures as Napoleon, Billy the Kid and Socrates.


THE HERO (2017)
2017, The Orchard, 100 min, USA, Dir: Brett Haley

Aging Western star Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) spends his days reliving past glories and smoking too much weed with his old co-star - now his dealer - Jeremy (Nick Offerman). When a cancer diagnosis swiftly adjusts his priorities, Hayden decides to look for one last role that will cement his legacy and strikes up a new relationship with stand-up comic Charlotte (Laura Prepon) while attempting to reconnect with his estranged daughter Lucy (Krysten Ritter). Written and directed by Brett Haley (I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS), THE HERO is a poignant meditation on life and mortality and the legacies we leave behind.
