Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Paul Verhoeven. 1987, 102 mins. Restored DCP. With Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O’Herlihy. “The future has a silver lining,” promises a billboard in the background of RoboCop. By borrowing The Terminator’s tech-noir aesthetic and outfitting it with a number of key factory extras—including a satirical engine churning away underneath the various brutally effective action set pieces—Paul Verhoeven and his collaborators created the late-1980s Hollywood vehicle par excellence. Alternately hilarious and harrowing, RoboCop is perhaps Verhoeven’s greatest parody of American corporate culture and domination.
