Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Woody Allen
In hopes of impressing a girl (Louise Lasser) passionate for political activism, heartbroken Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) travels to the minuscule Latin American nation of San Marcos, where he gets involved with the rebel movement and ultimately becomes the country's president.

Director Robert Altman and writer Michael Tolkin mercilessly rip apart the self-important execs at major movie studios who study demographics, have story conferences, listen to writers’ absurd pitches and basically create grist for the mill, and they conjure a spot-on satire in the process. Tim Robbins’ appropriately-named character Griffin Mill is the kind of lowest-common-denominator advocate of whom it could be said, "If he ever had an original thought it would die of loneliness." After accidentally killing a writer who has been harassing him, Mill tries to cover his tracks but becomes mesmerized by the dead scribe’s girlfriend (Greta Scacchi). Simultaneously badgered at work by another exec, Larry Levy (Peter Gallagher) who is after his job, Mill gradually, hilariously unravels. With Whoopi Goldberg, Lyle Lovett, Fred Ward, Vincent D’Onofrio.
This pitch-black comedy from Luis Buñuel follows the thwarted best-laid plans of Archibaldo de la Cruz (Ernesto Alonso), a privileged screwball living during the Mexican Revolution who believes his calling in life is to be a serial killer of women - yet every woman he stalks either accidentally dies, kills herself or is bumped off by someone else before he can get his satisfaction! A rarely screened gem, and in good company with THE YOUNG AND THE DAMNED, THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL and “Simon of the Desert” as Buñuel’s finest Mexican films. With Miroslava. In Spanish with English subtitles.
