AN EVENING WITH WRITER/DIRECTOR LARRY CHARLES
Opens Sunday, July 14 | 1 hr 52 min
Masked and Anonymous with Director and Writer Larry Charles in Person! Comedy legend Larry Charles jumped straight into the deep end with his directorial debut Masked an Anonymous, a cinematic ”meta-fiction” starring Bob Dylan that’s part psychodrama, part meditation on the chaotic state of modern America. Confounding audiences and critics alike on its initial release, the film remains oddly prescient in its subversive depiction of a post-political society seeking refuge in the pablum of government conspiracies and false security of authoritarianism. “Set in a contemporary America that suggests an endless skid row, which such Latin-American trimmings as an ongoing civil war and a dying dictator whose likeness hangs everywhere, this is at once a spin on Dylan’s mythology, an excuse to feature as many of his songs as possible, and an unblinking look at American greed, corruption, and self-absorption. For all of the film’s avant-garde narrative dislocations, the star-studded cast- including Jeff Bridges, Penelope Cruz, John Goodman, Jessica Lange, Luke Wilson, Angela Bassett, Val Kilmer, Mickey Rourke, and many others in cameos—keeps this film buzzing.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader The film will be followed by a conversation between Charles and the author and poet Robert Polito. After a highly successful first time Circle Cinema Film Festival in 2018 that celebrated Circle Cinema’s 90th birthday, it’s back in 2019 with an exciting showcase of original storytelling through film, art, music and experiences. The festival brings a stellar line-up of diverse films and special guests to Tulsa including some fresh from this year’s Sundance Film Festival and SXSW. Film programming, with an emphasis on Oklahoma-centric independent films and filmmakers, will include a mix of documentaries and features along with classic and silent films.
