Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jun 17th at 7pm for Face Off at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Dan wearing a multicolored shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Part of the Brattle’s repertoire series: “Nicolas Cage: Greatest American Actor”
“Cage must have relished the opportunity not only to play the bad guy but also to impersonate another of Hollywoods most popular leading men in this terrific action film by the legendary John Woo. Travolta plays FBI agent Sean Archer who finally corners his arch-nemesis, Castor Troy (Cage), only to discover that Troy has hidden a biological weapon somewhere in Los Angeles. In order to uncover the location of the bomb, Archer gets experimental surgery to take on Troys appearance but Troy soon escapes and gets the same surgery to take on Archers appearance.”
