O.C. and Stiggs in 35mm
Monday, January 14 @ 7:00 PM / Music Box Theatre
Directed by Robert Altman  1987
Ready to burn his last bridge with Hollywood, Robert Altman took an offer to make a National Lampoon adaptation with a hefty budget at the height of the post-Animal House boom. What resulted was O.C. and Stiggs, a surreal, nearly plotless evisceration of an American culture enamored with conservative punditry, a usurious insurance industry, firearms, and plastic bric-a-brac, masquerading as a sexless teen sex comedy. Deploying a typically sprawling and rangy ensemble that includes Dennis Hopper, Jane Curtin, Paul Dooley, Tina Louise, Jon Cryer, Martin Mull, Cynthia Nixon, Melvin Van Peebles, Bob Uecker, and King Sunny Adé, Altmans film finds obnoxious teenage miscreants O.C. (Oliver Cromwell or Out of Control, take your pick) Ogilvie and Mark Stiggs wreaking havoc amidst a web of oblivious classmates, odious Reaganite suburb dwellers, and battle-scarred counterculture refugees. The results flummoxed the bosses at MGM, who summarily buried the film after delaying its release for years. An unparalleled achievement in transgressive studio filmmaking that somehow maintains its reputation as the most maligned film of Altmans most maligned decade, O.C. and Stiggs still feels too far afield for the suits, an utterly monstrous, mind-roasting explosive device ready to detonate in the face of anybody who dares to look its way.
