GREG PROOPS FILM CLUB: La Femme Nikita (rare 35mm screening!)

First up, Greg Proops — one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth — records his latest episode of his lugubrious, salacious, verbacious monthly Film Club podcast live, and then it’s time for a very rare 35mm screening of Luc Besson’s glossy Nineties actioner La Femme Nikita. Greg sez: “Nikita (Anne Parillaud) is a drugged up hoodlum who kills a cop in a heist. The Secret government puts her in the slammer and offers her a choice: be dead or be an assassin. She gets the guidance of French film legend Jeanne Moreau on how to use her feminine wiles and be deadly. She meets a guy who doesn’t know she’s a killer, and tries to have a life — but being a hit-person is a full-time gig, baby. This movie is all short skirts, huge guns and cool explosions. One the great kick ass girl movies, La Femme Nikita is as fun as a day playing video games on Molly. Come for the action, stay for the sexy. Popcorn required.” Proops will deconstruct, reanimate and regale this fine classic, plus tackle 467 ancilliary tangents in an expert flick of the verbal wrist. Be there!
Dir. Luc Besson, 1990, 35mm, 117 min.

Q: Does Greg talk over the movies, like the Doug Benson Movie Interruption?
A: No. It is a recording of his podcast, followed by a screening of the film.
