GREG PROOPS FILM CLUB: Bull Durham

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

Greg Proops (one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth) records the latest episode of his monthly Film Club podcast live — and then it’s time for the seriously fun ‘80s Kevin Costner sports saga Bull Durham. Greg sez: “The best baseball movie because it’s foremost a sexy movie that includes baseball. The anti-Natural — nobody wins the big game, no slo-mo home run with lights bursting. This is a character study with loads of laffs. Costner, when he was dead sexy before he Danced with Wolves, is a minor league catcher on his last few laps, brought in to nursemaid the new fireballing phenom pitcher (Tim Robbins, before he saved the world). They vie for the attention of the fabulously radiant Susan Sarandon, who’s a font of wisdom: literary, baseball and sexual. She mentors only one player each season. Nuke needs a nanny, Crash needs a break, Annie needs a reason. This movie answers the question, “What are they talking about on the mound?” Perfect summertime fare. Male bonding and dreams that may come true.”

Dir. Ron Shelton, 1988, 35mm, 108 min. - See more at: http://www.cinefamily.org/films/the-greg-proops-film-club/#sthash.sXPqwy...

His Broken Lines

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90024

7:30pm

Between 1987 and 1990, Tony Greene (1955–1990) produced a small yet powerful body of work exploring desire, mortality, and the continued presence of the body in the face of the AIDS epidemic. This discussion explores Greene’s work, the politics of queer art production in Los Angeles during the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the stakes related to queer curatorial and artistic practices. Moderated by David Frantz, curator of Tony Greene: Amid Voluptuous Calm, with Monica Majoli, artist and curator; Lawrence Rinder, director, UC Berkeley Museum and Pacific Film Archive; Matias Viegener, artist and writer; and artist Millie Wilson.
