Cerebral Cinema - Man of Steel
Die hard cinephiles, academic film enthusiasts, and casual movie goers looking to expand their movie going experience welcome. Cerebral Cinema is a group geared towards getting together to watch a variety of a eclectic cinema ranging from highbrow indie fare to genre blockbusters. Following each theatrical outing, our group will congregate to discuss the film over food or drinks in a casual laid-back environment. Discussion topics will center around the film's plot and themes, the past filmography of the cast and crew, and the film at hand's cultural relevance. Let's get acquainted and talk cinema.
In this latest film featuring actor Michael Shannon of Revolutionary Road, Bug and Boardwalk Empire fame, Shannon plays an alien general named Zod. After aspiring to become the totalitarian dictator of his home-world Krypton, and Krypton's subsequent destruction, Zod comes to earth to rule ("finally to rule") forcing all earthlings to "kneel before Zod!" When he comes to realize that Earth is the adopted home of the son of his jailer, also from Krypton, stakes are ratcheted and an interstellar grudge match ensues (also, I think the title of this film is Man of Steel and I believe it features some character named Superman but that's neither here nor there). Drinks and discussion will follow after the film at the Starbucks on Astor Place and/or Central Bar. Be there or be quadrilateral.
New Michael Shannon film (aka Man of Steel, or something to that effect) is rated PG-13, is directed by Zack Snyder and stars MICHAEL SHANNON among others.
