Screen/Society--"The Simpsons Movie" (2007) 35mm Weekend Matinee
"The Simpsons Movie"
(David Silverman, 2007, 87 min, USA, English, color, 35mm)
Imagine: A celebrity president who proclaims, "I was elected to lead, not to read." A carelessly-treated world perched on the threshold of ecological disaster. A gravity-defying spider-pig named Harry Plopper. Well, no real-world evidence of that last item yet, but otherwise 'The Simpsons Movie' confirms the series as our greatest predictor of the future. Come see the Simpsons clan struggle for the soul and survival of Springfield in the format the show was always intended to be seen - 35mm film!
"'The Simpsons Movie' is full of the anarchic, generous, good-natured humor that is the show's enduring signature." A.O. Scott, New York Times
