  • El Biffo's rating of the film Peggy and Fred in Hell: The Prologue

    Pacific Film Archive 15 October '14 A magnificent and overwhelming work, easily the most impressive theatrical presentation I have seen all year. Linklater's BOYHOOD is insignificant by comparison; this is boyhood and girlhood and personhood and the apocalyptic "hell" they are living in is the one we are all living in now. This screening involved 7 TV monitors placed throughout the theater, and a film screen. WoW.
