Introduction by Author John Darnielle

(1968) dir Peter Bogdanovich w/Tim O’Kelly, Boris Karloff, Arthur Peterson, Monte Landis, Peter Bogdanovich [90 min; 35mm]
Acclaimed author and musician John Darnielle introduces Peter Bogdanovich’s lean, mean thriller about a B-movie star (Karloff) trapped in the middle of a shooting rampage at a drive-in cinema.

“A fascinatingly complex commentary on American mythology, exploring the relationship between the inner world of the imagination and the outer world of violence and paranoia, both of which were relevant to contemporary American traumas.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“Targets scores an unnerving bullseye.” – Howard Thompson, New York Times

“Brilliant film.” – Combustible Celluloid
