Post-film discussion with Ariel Schrag! High-definition digital projection

Hitch a ride on route 666 with Mickey and Mallory, the celebrity crime couple at the decentered core of Oliver Stone’s most controversial film. Screened in its full, unwieldy director’s cut, carnage collides with zealous media moguls all set to a searing soundtrack littered with Nine Inch Nails, L7 and Patti Smith. For author, graphic novelist and The L Word scribe Ariel Schrag, “something about Mallory Knox’s rage, her fuck-all attitude, her shitlist ass kicking spoke to everything queer and ready to burst inside my fourteen-year-old self… At that age the intensity of this frenzied, hallucinatory, collage-style film felt like some version of the truth.”
