Arizona Dream, dir. by Emir Kusturica, at Doc Films

Emir Kusturica, 1993

Monday, 3/27 at 7PM


Remember when Johnny Depp used to actually choose interesting roles? In this magical humdinger of a picture, he plays Axel Blackmer, an aimless NY fish-tagger who heads west to take over the family car dealership and meets a bunch of eccentrics, including a wealthy widow (Faye Dunaway) with whom he strikes up an odd and painful relationship. Kusturica's singular masterpiece explores the dream-swept mystery of the desert in strokes both quirky and spiritual.
