Hi, we are kind of getting late again with the organization of the next movie night. The movie night is this Saturday the 18th. Yes, that soon already... and no topic has been picked so far.
Anyway, here we go - the genre for this Saturday?s movie night shall be: Road movie.
Because of the scarceness of time lets skip the ?suggestion phase? and jump directly into the ?voting phase?. We picked 6 road movies (see below), which represent different countries, times and genres like drama, action movie and comedy. Today I will just send some copy-pasted infos on each movie. Tomorrow I will put up the vote. Whatever additional road movie suggestions I will get until tomorrow 6 PM I will also add.
Here is the list
1. Drugstore Cowboy (1998 drama by Gus Van Sant)
In this unrepentant look at the life of junkies, a quartet of addicts robs pharmacies to fuel their habits. Ringleader Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon), along with his wife (Kelly Lynch) and underlings Rick (James Le Gros) and Nadine (Heather Graham), takes the show on the road after things get too hot at home. When Nadine goes toes up from an overdose, Bob swears off drugs and tries to rebuild his life -- minus his wife, who's determined to stay hooked.
2. Exiles (2004 French drama by Tony Gatlif)
In this French drama, two Parisian lovers (Romain Duris and Lubna Azabal) decide to move to Algeria and reconnect with their roots. They travel slowly, moving across three countries by foot, train and hitched rides. En route, they meet many people, including a helpful Algerian couple (Leila Makhlouf and Habib Cheik). When they finally arrive, the culturally naive pair find themselves in a country that fascinates them -- but feels truly foreign.
3. The Getaway (1972 action movie by Sam Peckinpah)
Master thief Carter 'Doc' McCoy (Steve McQueen) and his wife, Carol (Ali MacGraw), escape with the loot from a botched robbery. Thanks to a sinister succession of double-crosses, they soon find themselves running from the law, from a vengeful cohort and from a crime boss's deadly hit squad, all while trying to pull off the ultimate robbery.
4. In July (2001 movie by Turkish/German director Fatih Akin)
Daniel (Moritz Bleibtreu) is a shy, lovelorn science teacher in Hamburg, Germany. Juli (Christiane Paul) is a dread-locked, free-spirited Hamburg street vendor. They cross paths when Juli sells Daniel a sun-inscribed ring and tells him he will soon fall in love with a woman wearing a similar symbol ? secretly hoping that she herself will be that woman
5. Fandango (1985 comedy directed by Kevin Reynolds)
Five college roommates take a gonzo road trip into the Texas badlands and across the Mexican border before they graduate and go their separate ways. During their journey, they bond and remember the good times and lazy days just past. This 1985 student film directed by Kevin Reynolds stars Judd Nelson, Sam Robards (son of Jason Robards and Lauren Bacall), Pepe Serna, Chuck Bush, Brian Cesak and a young Kevin Costner.
6. Kalifornia (1993 thriller by Dominic Sena?)
Researching a book on serial killings, writer Brian Kessler (David Duchovny) and his girlfriend, Carrie Laughlin (Michelle Forbes), travel cross-country to the murder sites. Hitchhikers Earlye Grace (Brad Pitt), out on parole, and Adele Corners (Juliette Lewis) offer to share expenses for the trip, but Brian doesn't realize just how close he is to the topic of his book -- even as bodies pile up behind them and Earlye's landlord is found dead.
