Desperate Hours: The Films of Michael Cimino

Sep 29—Oct 6, 2016

Of all the titan-auteurs to emerge during the legendary New Hollywood of the 1970s, none was more audacious, uncompromising, and controversial than the late Michael Cimino. In his too few films, Cimino explored American myths, rituals, and masculinity with an unrivaled sense of epic grandeur and an often breathtaking visual style. This is bracing, visceral movie-making, writ with a palpable passion for the possibilities of cinema across the widescreen frame.
