FilmSoc Week 8: SPEED RACER
26 April, 2016
RC Mills Lecture Room 209
Dir. The Wachowskis, USA, 2008
The Wachowskis first directorial effort after The Matrix Trilogy was the weird and wonderful Speed Racer. An adaptation of a much-loved Japanese manga and anime, the movie was a critical and commercial bomb, but, eight years later, is now a budding cult film, layered with political allegory and creativity. A multi-coloured, multi-dimensional gem, Speed Racer changed the FX game. So put aside your initial skepticism and give it a go.
Find us on Tuesday in RC Mills Lecture Room 209. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
