Kixott Movie Nights: Run Lola Run
February 8 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
When a certain fellow by the name of Harvey Weinstein discovered that his company, Miramax, had failed to acquire the American distribution rights for Run Lola Run, the German breakout hit on everyone’s tongue in 1998, he was understandably furious.
Less understandably, perhaps, he reacted by throwing a lit cigarette in the face of the poor junior exec responsible for the deal falling through.
That exec was Jason Blum, whose ascent seems to be inversely proportional to Weinstein’s deserved downfall.
But it’s a wound searing enough to deserve recounting.
The film in question, we’re happy to report, has lost none of its sting either. Both a time-capsule of that late-90s indie spirit and so brisk and simple to be timelessly enjoyable, this is a cinematic experience for whom the term ‘hi-octane’ appears to have been invented.
