Midnight Movie Madness: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Poets and Writers film series, cosponsored by the Friends For The Public Library, kicks off today at Guild Cinema in Nob Hill. Among the word-centric films are An Angel At My Table (Jane Campion’s biopic about distinguished author Janet Frame), Barton Fink (the Coen brother’s existentially spoofy look at screenwriting in the Golden Age of Hollywood) and Slam Planet: War of Words (a documentary look at the national slam poetry championships). Each film will be introduced by a local author and/or poet. Alibi is getting into the spirit of the festival by sponsoring the Midnight Movie Madness screening of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This spiritedly trippy adaptation of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s crackpot autobiography (directed by Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam) stars Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro, Harry Dean Stanton, Cameron Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Christina Ricci, Gary Busey, Lyle Lovett and more. Fear and Loathing will play Friday and Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. only. Local poet Olivia Gatwood will introduce Friday’s show. City Slam Champion Hakim Bellamy will kick it off on Saturday.
