Less Than Zero Screening at BAM tonight

One of my all time favorites is screening at BAM tonight

Less than Zero (1987) 98min
Mon, May 12 at 6:50, 9:15pm

Directed by Marek Kanievska
With Andrew McCarthy, Robert Downey Jr., James Spader
Based on the Ellis novel, this tragic character study follows Clay (McCarthy) as he returns from school to find his best friend Julian (Downey Jr.) hooked on cocaine and spiraling inexorably downward. Downey Jr. gives a breakout performance and Lachman captures the plastic excess of the moneyed 80s with pristine images that make the movie appear “brilliantly superficial.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
