Something Wild with Film Critic Peter Rainer
Jan 8 at 7:30 pm
Starting as a lighthearted romance, Something Wild quickly veers from funny to fearsome. Critic Peter Rainer says: “With its jangly mix of levity and frights, it is a clear precursor to the films of Quentin Tarantino. Demme’s film, however, is far more humane.... When the people in Something Wild are cut, they bleed real blood.”
Peter Rainer joins us to talk about this movie and much more, as we celebrate the publication of his acclaimed new book, Rainer on Film: Thirty Years of Film Writing in a Turbulent and Transformative Era.
Q&A Peter Rainer, is the critic for the Christian Science Monitor, a columnist for Bloomberg News, the president of the National Society of Film Critics, and a regular reviewer for NPR. He was a finalist for the 1998 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism.
The conversation will be followed by a book sale and signing of Rainer on Film. Books courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK IN THE LOBBY BEFORE THE FILM. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the desk adjacent to the stairs. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meetup group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.
