The Exterminator (6 pm)
The Exterminator shows us what it might look like if someone applied superhero methods in real life. After his army buddy is paralyzed by a ruthless gang, John Eastland (Robert Ginty) blows away those involved. He doesn't stop there, setting out on a spree to off as many depraved individuals as one man can track down in late 1970s New York City. The movie found an enthusiastic audience and launched director James Glickenhaus's career. Expect blood, guts (machine-processed) and scorched bodies, and witness NYC when it was at its dingiest.
Director: James Glickenhaus. 101 min. 1980. 35mm.
7:45 pm: Q&A with James Glickenhaus.
Shakedown (8:30 pm)
Eight years after leveling the scum of the city by any means necessary in The Exterminator, Times Square auteur James Glickenhaus goes big budget and leaves a wake of destruction through some of the most iconic locations in pre-Giuliani New York.
An overworked lawyer (Peter Weller) teams with an undercover cop (a never-more-grizzled Sam Elliott) to take on drug kingpins and high-level police corruption. The actual level of corruption within the NYPD is debatable, but one fact remains clear: action movies are rarely this exciting, intelligent and unpretentious. Features an astonishing shootout/car chase on super sleazy 42nd street and the untouchable tagline, “Whatever you do … don’t call the cops.”
Director: James Glickenhaus. 112 min. 1988. 35mm.
