Post-film discussion with The Strokes’ Albert Hammond, Jr.! 35mm print

“Allen’s second feature, a tribute to the Marx Brothers’ Duck Soup, is a wonderfully incoherent series of one-liners centred around a puny New York Jew’s unwitting and unwilling involvement in a South American revolution. The revolutionary party’s new policies are an absurd comment on the corruption of power, especially when everyone is informed that the official, non-decadent language of the country will be Swedish.” – Time Out (London)
