DJ Reverend Dan (KXLU) will be here to spin tunes before the show! Greg Proops (one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth) records his monthly Film Club podcast live — and then it’s time for one of Pacino’s most iconic roles ever. Greg sez: “A super-sexy ‘70s cop thriller that barks from the past at today’s police mayhem. Every cop in New York is on the take, except one Frank Serpico, and the rest of the NYPD would rather see him die, than stand by while he blows the whistle on them. Gritty and uncompromising, Pacino is dogged in being the only good guy in this rotten world. He’s subtle and sincere, in the days when he specialized in that. Special bonus: he wear disguises, and carries a Man Bag. Also, a true story of uncovering corruption, and how the forces-that-be conspire and react with deadly force. Sound familiar, NYPD? Don’t turn your back on this movie.”
Dir. Sidney Lumet, 1973, 35mm, 130 min.

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