Milos Forman Double Feature! Screenwriters Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski In Person!
THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT / MAN ON THE MOON
Discussion between films with screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.
THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT
1996, Sony Repertory, 129 min, USA, Dir: Milos Forman

Millionaire pornographer Larry Flynt may seem an unlikely subject for a biopic, but in the hands of director Milos Forman and screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, his life and legal battles brilliantly illuminate the continuing American conflict between free speech and censorship. The outstanding cast is led by Woody Harrelson as the Hustler magazine founder, rocker Courtney Love as doomed stripper Althea Leasure and Edward Norton as attorney Alan Isaacman.


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 late 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.
