Discussion between films with director Steve De Jarnatt.
MIRACLE MILE
1988, Park Circus, 87 min, USA, Dir: Steve De Jarnatt

Musician Anthony Edwards is feeling good after a first date with a cute waitress (Mare Winningham), but his night takes a turn for the worse when he answers a ringing pay phone and obtains a terrifying piece of information: The U.S. has just fired a nuclear missile and the end of the world is at hand. The action all takes place in real time, more or less, on and around Wilshire Boulevard, and the compact sense of time and place makes for a taut, riveting modern-day noir.


CHERRY 2000
1987, Park Circus, 99 min, USA, Dir: Steve De Jarnatt

Melanie Griffith plays a female variation on Mad Max in this post-apocalyptic story of a hired killer who takes on psychotic criminals in a robot warehouse. John Ford stalwarts Ben Johnson and Harry Carey Jr. costar, giving this futuristic Western added street cred.
