HOLY FOOLS: THE ANTI-BIOPICS OF SCOTT & LARRY
Double Feature! Screenwriter Scott Alexander In Person!
ED WOOD / MAN ON THE MOON
Discussion between films with screenwriter Scott Alexander.
20th Anniversary!

ED WOOD
1994, Disney, 127 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton

Director Tim Burton’s unabashed love for his subject makes this 1994 biopic of the director of "the worst movie ever made" (that would be PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE) a perversely uplifting experience, although in reality its title character’s life was anything but happy. Johnny Depp portrays legendary schlock director Ed Wood as an enthusiastic hero of the cinema, a man whose love for moviemaking is so intense that it almost makes the quality of his work irrelevant. With an Oscar-winning performance by Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi, and an alternately hilarious and poignant screenplay by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander.


15th Anniversary!

MAN ON THE MOON
1999, Universal, 118 min, USA, Dir: Milos Forman

Audiences never knew quite what to think about Andy Kaufman, and this biopic from the creative team behind THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT will also keep you guessing. Jim Carrey earned a Golden Globe for his performance as the comedian, shifting effortlessly between such Kaufman personas as Latka Gravas of TV’s “Taxi,” lounge singer Tony Clifton and inter-gender wrestling champion. Costarring Danny DeVito (who also produced the film) and Paul Giamatti, and featuring the music of R.E.M.
