1986. USA. Dir: John Carpenter. With Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall. 99 min.
Russell’s Frisco trip goes to hell when his friend’s fiancée – and even worse, his truck – are kidnapped. To rescue both he descends into the seedy side of Chinatown, squaring off with an evil sorcerer in a genre-mixing kung fu fantasy action comedy that’s ridiculous in all the best ways. Intro by Marc Longenecker, Film Studies.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
