The Fisher King

The Fisher King

Dada Beijing events October 2014

Pre-gaming Halloween this month, DADA showing a handful of films in which Death or the Grim Reaper or some equivalent hellish being assumes humanoid form to terrorize or render bogus the lives of a few unfortunate souls reluctant to shuttle off this mortal coil.

 

October 6: The Fisher King (dir. Terry Gilliam, 1991)
"After hearing a popular DJ rail against yuppies, a madman carries out a massacre in a popular New York bar. Dejected and remorseful, the DJ strikes up a friendship with Parry, a former professor who became unhinged and then homeless after witnessing his wife's violent death in the bar shooting. The DJ seeks redemption by helping Parry in his quest to recover an item that he believes is the Holy Grail and to win the heart of the woman he loves." Said deranged homeless man is played by Robin Williams (RIP), in his most emotionally intense film role. He's plagued by a hallucinatory being credited as the Red Knight, which for the purposes of this theme I'm going to say is basically an incarnation of death.

The Masque of the Red Death

The Masque of the Red Death

October 13: The Masque of the Red Death (dir. Roger Corman, 1964)
"Satan-worshiper Prince Prospero invites several dozen of the local nobility to his castle for protection against an oncoming plague, the Red Death. Prospero orders his guests to attend a masked ball and, amidst a general atmosphere of debauchery and depravity, notices the entry of a mysterious hooded stranger dressed all in red. Believing the figure to be his master, Satan, Prospero is horrified at the revelation of his true identity." Prospero is played by Vincent Price, and nothing says Halloween like Vincent Price. Based on one of Poe's darkest ones, which is saying a lot.

 

October 20: Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (dir. Peter Hewitt, 1991)
"The world of our distant future is a veritable utopia, thanks to the lyrics of two simple-minded 20th Century rock and rollers, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted 'Theodore' Logan. However, a would-be conquerer threatens to throw history off-track by sending 'most non-non-heinous' evil robot Bill and Teds back to kill their good counterparts. Finding themselves dead, the boys must outwit the Grim Reaper and traverse Heaven and Hell to return to the land of the living, rescue their 'babes' and have a 'most triumphant' concert at the all-important Battle of the Bands." No further explanation required.

The Seventh Seal

The Seventh Seal

October 27: The Seventh Seal (dir. Ingmar Bergman, 1957)
"A Knight and his squire are home from the crusades. Black Death is sweeping their country. As they approach home, Death appears to the knight and tells him it is his time. The knight challenges Death to a chess game for his life. The Knight and Death play as the cultural turmoil envelopes the people around them as they try, in different ways, to deal with the upheaval the plague has caused." A real laugh riot, this one.
