Buckle up for a free 35mm screening of Speed Racer, starring Emile Hirsch in the title role. "This is a movie that is giddily, gorgeously overwhelming," wrote critic Tom Maurstad, "from the cool slow-motion to the Kubrick cartoons to the wormhole pyrotechnics to the kaleidoscopic bliss." Steven Rea said of the 2008 action-comedy from the Wachowskis, "Speed Racer offers a crazy, turbo-charged mix of cartoon kitsch, gamer action, and a wild new way to think of—and look at—movies." Christina Ricci, Matthew Fox, John Goodman, and Susan Sarandon co-star. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
