“I sincerely believe that to see good films, and to see important films, is one of the most profoundly civilizing experiences that we can have as people.” -- Roger Ebert
Special screening: ALTERED STATES on Tuesday, October 24
In this hallucinatory, influential sci-fi phantasmagoria, a Harvard scientist (William Hurt) subjects himself to a series of tests involving mind-altering drugs, hoping to explore different levels of human consciousness, but he winds up deteriorating into a primeval being. Blair Brown and Bob Balaban also star in the film, featuring an Oscar-nominated score by John Corigliano. “Altered States” was also nominated for its hair-raising sound effects.
103 minutes, rated R.
“One hell of a movie!” – Roger Ebert
