SUPERSTAR
1999, Paramount, 81 min, USA, Dir: Bruce McCulloch

The “SNL movie” phenomenon was never more gleefully inside-out than with SUPERSTAR, the funtastic origin story of “television's most endearing insecure extrovert” (New York Times.) Molly Shannon lays down the comedic law as Mary Katherine Gallagher, a Catholic schoolgirl with showbiz aspirations equally as mondo as her skewed sexual awakening. An absurd, subversive ‘90s ride - and the only film co-starring both MTV’s Tom Green and MARY POPPINS’ Glynis Johns.


SHORT CUTS
1993, Warner Bros., 187 min, USA, Dir: Robert Altman

Working from short stories by Raymond Carver, director Robert Altman creates a funny, tragic and wholly original portrait of Southern Californians whose lives intersect in surprising ways. The cast is one of Altman's best: Matthew Modine, Julianne Moore, Buck Henry, Lily Tomlin, Tom Waits, Andie MacDowell, Jack Lemmon, Lili Taylor and Robert Downey Jr. are just a few of the stars in this masterpiece.
