DESCRIPTION

Oddball Films and guest curator Joe Garrity present Is This Love?: Uncertain Hearts and More Certain Parts. You’ll-know-it-when-you-feel-it in the program that shelves the rose-colored glasses and examines love as it really is: ambivalent, compulsive, and defying definition. From first dates to free love, sex to sects, we search far and wide for that most elusive feeling. The program includes George Kaczender’s cool 1966 gem The Game, featuring mod rocking teens fumbling for play, and Richard Williams’ animated morality tale Love Me, Love Me, Love Me (1962), where when it comes to love, “no one really has it good.” Also, Chuck Jones unleashes his Lothario-skunk, Pepe Le Pew, in the Oscar-winning cartoon For Scent-imental Reasons (1949). Finally, youth wrestle romantic problems in The Dating Scene (1972), and newlyweds examine cultural mores in the classic Social Sex Attitudes in Adolescence (1953). Plus! Indulge in A Quickie (1969) by Dirk Kortz, and say you do in Love, Honor, and Oh Boy! (1960). Join us for an evening of dubious dates, nervous nuptials, and much more! For additional information visit: http://oddballfilms.blogspot.com/2012/01/is-this-love-fri-feb-17-8pm.html
