Midnights: POOTIE TANG
September 8, 2017 @ 11:55 pm
“Pootie Tang works, in part, because it doesn’t. Which is to say the movie’s special success is inextricable from the moments where it blatantly fails. The movie exerts a beguiling charm that can only be explained as the je ne sais quoi of sa da tay.” – The Village Voice
“A bona fide cult object in the making.” – Dennis Lim
Adapted from a comedy sketch on HBO’s “The Chris Rock Show,” Pootie Tang (Lance Crouther) is the ultimate superhero. A cool-walking, smooth-talking lady’s man, Pootie is a hero and a role model to all the kids of the neighborhood. Everybody looks up to Pootie except evil Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn), CEO of Lecter Corp., a company that makes cigarettes, alcohol and fast food. Pootie shows cool determination and strength to prevail over Lecter and his minions.
Dir. Louis C.K. 2001. 81 min.
Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
