Path: A full course syllabus and each class also stands alone if you can only make it once in a while.
Feb. 4, 2020, 7:15 p.m. | 2 hours | BYOB (no red wine).
Join Geoff Klock for a look at absurdly famous movies where fantasy, dreams, sexuality, identity and performance bleed in eerie ways. This week's film is "Psycho" from 1960: Hitchcock is the real slasher, cutting open narrative and audience.
Make this Olio happen. We need at least 10 signups in order to compensate the teacher fairly.
**If we don't reach our goal, we will refund the full price of your ticket.**

I like movies that are audacious, stylish, intense, artificial, influential, and uncanny, and I believe that movies are a form of thinking, a type of philosophy. Join me for a look at absurdly famous movies where fantasy, dreams, sexuality, identity and performance bleed in eerie ways as we look at movies by Stanley Kubrick, Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Orson Welles, David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Fellini, Dario Argento, Andrei Tarkovsky and others including various Film Noir.
We will take two, 2-hour sessions per film and if you don’t know the film at all come anyway — trust me when I say you can walk in ice cold and follow everything.

This Olio meets on Feb 4th and Feb 11th
