ABOUT SEE IT BIG! ACTION SERIES:
Presented in collaboration with Reverse Shot
In a sense, all movies are "action" movies; cinema is movement and light, after all. Since nearly the very beginning, spectacle and stunt work have been essential parts of the form. There is nothing quite like watching physical feats, pulse-pounding drama, and epic confrontations on a large screen alongside other astonished moviegoers. See It Big! Action offers up some favorites of the genre. The series opens with cinematic swashbucklers and continues with movies from around the world featuring white-knuckle chase sequences and thrilling stuntwork. It highlights work from some of the form's greatest practitioners, including John Woo, Michael Mann, Steven Spielberg, Akira Kurosawa, Kathryn Bigelow, Jackie Chan, and much more.
See It Big! is the Museum’s signature big-screen series, co-programmed by Curator of Film Eric Hynes and Reverse Shot editors Jeff Reichert and Michael Koresky.
ABOUT MAD MAX: FURY ROAD:
Dir. George Miller. 2015, 120 mins. 35mm. With Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult. One of the best films of 2015, George Miller’s reboot of the series is as wildly unhinged and thrillingly imaginative as the previous installments. This time around, Tom Hardy’s Max is along for the ride as Charlize Theron’s badass Imperator Furiosa flees the forces of a brutish warlord through a primitive, post-apocalyptic desert wasteland. Taking the form of an epic, breathlessly inventive chase sequence, Fury Road is a nigh-operatic spectacle of anarchic violence and vehicular carnage.
Dir. James Cameron. 1986. 154 mins. DCP. With Sigourney Weaver, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton. Seven years after Ridley Scott crept into theaters with the ultimate haunted-house-in-space movie, James Cameron, fresh of the success of The Terminator,barreled in with an action-packed sequel that upped every possible ante. Sigourney Weaver—in the rare action-movie role to earn an Oscar nomination—delivers a full-throated wallop as Ripley, the first film's sole survivor, who volunteers to return to the lonely planet known as LV-426, along with a heavily armed U.S. military battalion, to try and save a colony of humans who have unknowingly set up camp alongside hordes of tentacled beasts, face-huggers, and one really mean queen bee. Cameron offers one brilliantly staged set piece after another, leading to the ultimate showdown between two pissed-off mothers.
