Did you know that Robert Altman made a barely-released John Hughes-style teen misbehavior comedy in 1983? He did, and it’s as weird as you can imagine. With Dennis Hopper, Ray Walston, Cynthia Nixon, and, of course, King Sunny Adé & His African Beats. In 35mm.

REVIEWS

I found a lot to like about OC AND STIGGS, but more than anything I love Altman’s style: the overlapping dialogue, the purposefully wandering cameras, the jittery zooms, and the long shots that suggest both sociological distance and the perspective of a bemused trickster-God.”Nathan Rabin, AV Club
