CFS Presents "Mickey One" in 35mm
Directed by Arthur Penn  1965
Mickey One is on the run! Two years before the release of "Bonnie and Clyde," Arthur Penn directed what is still considered a relatively obscure and underseen stylish jazz-fueled head trip shot on location on the streets of Detroit and Chicago. Warren Beatty flexes his beautiful muscles in a classic Beatty-role of a fast-talking narcissistic stand-up comic on the run from the mob. His fears (real and/or imagined) of faceless pursuers launches him into a frightening and seemingly endless game of hide-and-seek filled with dead ends, sinister soup kitchens, shady characters of all sorts, and a monstrous Rube Goldberg contraption (operated by Kamatari Fujiwara) in front of Marina City that will spin your head. Sometimes written off as a pretentious French New Wave knock-off, Mickey One can nevertheless count Martin Scorsese and Joe Dante among its crusaders, the latter describing it as one of the most influential movies of my youth. Enigmatic at its best, dont try too hard to solve the riddles of this wacked-out urban odyssey lest they come after YOU next. Featuring a brilliant jazz score by composer Eddie Sauter and saxophonist Stan Getz and shot by frequent Bresson-collaborator cinematographer Ghislain Cloquet ("Au Hasard Balthazar," "Tess"). (RL)
