May 25 & 26
Sat and Sun 1:00pm only!

Dir. Kathryn Bigelow - 1981 - 82m

"An unholy collision of THE WILD ONE, Kenneth Anger, and TWO LANE BLACKTOP." — Nathaniel Thompson, MONDO DIGITAL


The feature debut of both its star, Willem Dafoe (TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA), and its directors, Monty Montgomery (producer, David Lynch's WILD AT HEART) and future Academy Award-winner Kathryn Bigelow (NEAR DARK). A motorcycle gang roars into a small southern town en route to the Daytona races, unnerving and angering the locals with their standoffish attitude and disrespect for social niceties. When gang member Vance (Dafoe), hooks up with sportscar-driving Telena, he incurs the wrath of the girl's father, setting the gang on a collision course with the rest of the town as simmering tensions boil over into violent retribution. Raw, angry and honest, THE LOVELESS is fully restored by Arrow Films and ready to roar into theaters.


"A strange, but compelling amalgam of art film and homage to the American International Pictures biker flicks of the 1960s." — Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide 


"An excoriation of Reagan-era nostalgia for the Fifties" —  Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
