Forgotten Cinema - Strange Days
Updated: Apr 5
Happy New Year from Forgotten Cinema!
What better way to celebrate the new year than the 1995 sci-fi, noir thriller that takes place on New Years, Strange Days. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, written by James Cameron and starring Ralph Fiennes, Angela Basset, Juliette Lewis, Tom Sizemore and Vincent D'Onofrio.
Join Field and Butler as they discuss where in the film the noir portion actually comes in as well as the weakness and almost pathetic nature of the protagonist, Lenny, that takes the film in an interesting direction and plays with convention. The Mikes also discuss why this movie was forgotten. (Imagine that?!)
So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.
