BEST IN SHOW
2000, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Guest

The same folks who brought you THIS IS SPINAL TAP and WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, are responsible for this side-splitting spoof on the insanity both in front of and behind the scenes of big-time dog shows. Christopher Guest not only directed and starred in but cowrote the howlingly funny script with costar Eugene Levy. The incredible ensemble cast includes Parker Posey, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard and Michael McKean, to name but a few.


35 mm!

WAITING FOR GUFFMAN
1996, Warner Bros., 84 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Guest

Off-Broadway director Christopher Guest goes to Blaine, Missouri, to put on a musical of the town’s history as it celebrates its 150th anniversary. The town’s most noteworthy moments include settlers taking root when their leader “smelled the salt air,” providing a stool for President William McKinley and a nearby flying saucer landing. The local characters who help stage the amateur musical include dentist Eugene Levy, travel agents Fred Willard and Catherine O’Hara and Dairy Queen waitress Parker Posey.
