KEVIN SMITH’S SMOVIOLA PRESENTS: THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI
ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION
W.D. RICHTER, 1984
USA | ENGLISH | 103 MINUTES
The Film Society’s new bi-monthly series curated and hosted by
award-winning filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma) returns for a
special NYFF edition with writer Earl Mac Rauch and director W. D.
Richter’s gonzo, Pynchon-esque cult favorite, starring the incomparable
Peter Weller as Japanese-American particle physicist, neurosurgeon and
all-around renaissance man Dr. Buckaroo Banzai. Fighting to save planet
Earth from an invasion of interstellar aliens—unleashed from another
dimension by the insane Dr. Emilio Lazardo (John Lithgow) and now
posing as defense contractors—Banzai joins forces with a volunteer army
and his wife’s suicidal twin sister (Ellen Barkin), and the outlandish
merriment begins. Just remember: no matter where you go, there you are.
In person: Kevin Smith, Peter Weller and John Lithgow.
