Trash Night: Star Knight

Trash Night presents STAR KNIGHT

STAR KNIGHT

WE EXPLODE INTO 2016 WITH A LEISURELY-PACED MEDIEVAL PERIOD PIECE ABOUT CATHOLIC SPAIN!!!!!!!!

OK, OK, calm down, of course it’s not that simple. Starring Klaus Kinski and Harvey Keitel, STAR KNIGHT interrupts itself ALMOST IMMEDIATELY with the DESCENT OF A SPACESHIP, piloted by an alien (Miguel Bosé) who was clearly styled after—you guessed it—DAVID BOWIE.

And as the townsfolk revolt in fear of the “flying dragon” and the princess falls in love with the alien, and as the king searches for a knight who can lance through space armor, the film UNMOORS ITSELF from its original trajectory, becoming SILLIER and SELF-PARODIC, culminating in an ending so BIZARRE AND IMPROBABLE that it had us STANDING and YELLING IN DISBELIEF. It feels like a film abandoned by a sincere director and finished by his IMPISH, DISGRUNTLED APPRENTICES.

To some, after seeing last month’s screening WE COME IN PEACE, Star Knight is going to feel paced like a BBC Victorian drama, and we BEGRUDGINGLY ADMIT that there is not even one police car that flips 180° while exploding. But don’t freak out, it’s not a GOOD movie or anything, it’s just a different rhythm—as STAR KNIGHT melts itself down into a DOLLAR-STORE MONTY PYTHON DRAMEDY, you won’t even miss the Uzis.

TRASH NIGHTWe’re excited to welcome TRASH NIGHT, one of Boston’s best underground comedy/film events, to the Brattle! Once a month TRASH NIGHT selects one F-grade, sub-cult cinematic wonder and unleashes it on an unsuspecting audience – with original video weirdness seeded throughout. This is one of the rare times at the Brattle when audience participation is not only encouraged, it’s required!
