“In France, I’m an auteur. In Germany, I’m a film-maker. In the UK, I’m a horror-director. In the US, I’m a bum.” – John Carpenter
“America doesn’t have so many great directors to spare that it can afford to let John Carpenter fall through the cracks… Carpenter stands completely and utterly alone as the last genre filmmaker in America… He is also the widescreen master of contemporary cinema… [Carpenter] makes films that are often more acutely intelligent than anything his less constrained contemporaries can manage.” – Kent Jones
Our tribute to one of the great contemporary American filmmakers, focusing on several of his overlooked and rarely screened gems. All shows free for Auteur-level members!
