SERIES IN BRAZIL INCLUDES 'SNAKE EYES' & 'MISSION TO MARS'
Brazil's Clovis Salgado Foundation (FCS) is currently hosting a film festival called "Renegades" at the Cine Humberto Mauro. The fest, which began yesterday and continues through May 30th, features films that were poorly received in their time, but that "have achieved a new position in the reflective and critical overview of cinema, after receiving a range of reinterpretations," according to the official description. Included in the series are two Brian De Palma films: Snake Eyes and Mission To Mars. According to Diverta-Se, FCS cinema manager Rafael Ciccarini argues that the series provides "an opportunity to promote new readings of these films, an attempt to get out of the commonplace regarding such works, provoking the public." The other films included are Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls, Tim Burton's Mars Attacks, Abel Ferrara's Dangerous Game, Michael Cimino's Desperate Hours, M. Night Shyamalan's Lady In The Water, and Clint Eastwood's True Crime.
