The first screening will be introduced by Austin filmmaker Michael Tully.
If you give a filmmaker like Robert Downey, Sr. a million dollars to make a movie, something like this is bound to happen. This is Downey’s epic, slapstick, gag-a-minute Christ allegory set in the Old West. Truly one of a kind, inventive, sick, and funny. In 35mm.
“In the early 1970s, when revisionist Westerns were all the rage — think MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, or, especially, EL TOPO — GREASER’S PALACE stood out as a distinctive, rangy animal, one that in no way could be corralled into commercial territory.” – Peter Martin, Screen Anarchy
“The PUTNEY SWOPE of Westerns.” – Coen Brothers, Entertainment Weekly
