My Dinner With André
Aug 09 - Aug 15, 2013
(Louis Malle, 1981, USA, 35mm, 110 min)
Playwright/actor Wallace Shawn sits across the table from avant-garde theatre figure Andre Gregory in a chic SoHo restaurant, circa 1981. They talk over dinner. And talk and talk and talk. But the whirlwind dialogue of ideas about art, life, New York, humanity and the impending doom of civilization keeps the film exciting. Screenwriter/stars Shawn and Gregory make this a one-of-a-kind exchange of ideologies that will keep your noggin on its toes.
