Nitehawk’s BOOZE & BOOKS presents a screening of STARDUST MEMORIES in celebration of Tom Shone’s new book “Woody Allen: A Retrospective” published by Abrams Books. Shone will introduce the film!
Update: Tom Shone will sign copies of the book before the screening!
Filmmaker Sandy Bates goes fully into his own existential crisis while attending a retrospective of his work. Recounting his past relationships as the complications of his present ones play out, he searches for meaning both in work and in love. The tender balance between the tragedy and comedy of life plays out as he weighs the importance of each. And while it seems that his audience prefers to look at the bright side of life amongst all the tragedy, Sandy can’t resist staying in the muck.
In Woody Allen: A Retrospective, author Tom Shone traces Allen’s entire professional life as an entertainer and director, weaving in archival and original interviews, and accompanying this new critical monograph with more than 250 behind-the-scenes stills, photographs, posters, and ephemera. Tom Shone is the film critic for the Guardian US and the Economist’s Intelligent Life magazine. He has written for Slate, the New Yorker, and the Sunday Times. He is the author of Blockbuster, In the Rooms, and Martin Scorsese: A Retrospective (Abrams, 2014).
