Eventbrite - Independent Women Presents: Strange Days

“This is the first movie about virtual reality to deal in a challening way with the implications of the technology. It’s fascinating the way Bigelow is able to suggest so much of the VR’s impact (and dangers) within a movie.” -Roger Ebert

“Staged as a countdown to the millenium, the movie creates a darkly logical extension of our media-wired culture of vicarious senation seekers. It’s as if Philip K. Dick had recruited Brian De Palma’s brain.” -Rolling Stone

“Angela. Bassett.” -Shayana Filmmore, Independent Women curator & host

This epic thriller is set in a hellish Los Angeles during the last days of the 20th century. The tale centers on Lenny Nero (Ralph Fiennes,) a sleazy grifter who sells voyeuristic scenes. After his lover Faith (Juliette Lewis) leaves him, he tries to win her back after learning that she is in danger.

Dir. Kathryn Bigelow. 1995. 145 min.
