MLB Lecture Room 2, First Floor
In anticipation of the 12th Annual Comparative Literature Intra-student Faculty Forum (CLIFF) on "Revenge" this March 29-30, please join us Fridays this winter for showings of your favorite (or should I say our favorite) revenge movies.The first installment of this mini-film series will take place this Friday, February 8th at 6pm in the MLB Lecture Rm 2. Come see the eighties classic Revenge of the Nerds (1984) Starring Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards. Directed by Jeff Kanew. Discussion to follow. Location to be decided by those interested. Then, slake your thirst for revenge again:
February 15th: Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949). Watch Alec Guinness get killed eight times.
March 7th: Unforgiven (1992). Clint Eastwood deconstructs the Old West.
March 14th: The Nightingale's Prayer (1959). A poor servant takes vengeance on her lusty bachelor master in this Egyptian classic.
All of which will no doubt compel you to hear the intriguing panels on various aspects of revenge and its representation in literature, film, history and public space at the conference at the end of March, as well as the keynote address by Michigan Law Professor William Ian Miller. Look for more details about this year's CLIFF soon.
