All at once a rock star, a neurosurgeon, a martial arts and particle physics expert, Buckaroo Banzaï sets off to fight creatures from another dimension.

Behind this improbable movie hides a sort of huge acid candy fed on pulp culture, whose catastrophical release rang the knell for Sherwood Studios. The director, W.D. Richter,  a gifted scriptwriter, (Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, Dracula, Needful Things) presents an iconic character played by Peter Weller (RoboCop, The Naked Feast), that reminds of Jack Burton and his adventures, directed by John Carpenter two years later, and written by... W. D. Richter.

Saturday 9 September 2017 - 21:45 - Showroom 300 - Screening presented by Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet
