Barb Wire

Midnights: BARB WIRE

May 6 @ 11:55 pm

Eventbrite - Copy of Midnights: 'Barb Wire'

“The movie carries its cyberpunk variation right through to the end, and usually with enough wit and craziness to freshen the mix.” – Washington Post

“There’s as much sheer work in this film as in films 10 times as good — which is both encouraging and depressing, I suppose.” – Roger Ebert

This quasi-feminist fantasy adventure is based on a popular Dark Horse comic and is set in a civil-war-torn United States. The year is 2017 and a Nazi-like Congressional Directorate has commandeered the government. The evil CD threatens to wipe out entire cities with Red Ribbon, a manufactured virus derived from HIV. They have already successfully tested it on the city of Topeka, and only Steel Harbor remains free. Therein lives Barb Wire (Pamela Lee), a wild-haired black leather and thigh-high boot-wearing, hog-riding spit-fire bounty-hunter who carries antibodies for Red Ribbon in her DNA and frequently captures her fugitives by posing as a stripper. The plot of the film is loosely based on the plot of Casablanca.
Dir. David Hogan. 1996. 98 min.

Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
