"Bananas" & "Sleeper" — DOUBLE FEATURE

"BANANAS" (1971, Woody Allen) — “This trial is a travesty. It’s a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.” Woody’s Fielding Mellish becomes a banana republic’s first Jewish president when the former jefe demands fresh underwear (worn outside) on the half-hour. With sportscasting legend Howard Cosell play-by-playing an assassination and a marriage consummation and a young Sylvester Stallone being Sylvester Stallone. 35mm. 

"SLEEPER" (1973, Woody Allen) Waking up in 2173, Woody’s Miles Monroe finds out his rent is “2000 months overdue” and he’s the only person alive without an identification number in what’s now a police state — and soon he’s on the run with rebel Diane Keaton. “You laugh all the way through and come out smiling and happy.” — Pauline Kael. 35mm.
