May 23rd 7:00pm
Presented by The Asheville Film Society
This is the big one! Well, that’s not to say that the Asheville Film Society’s May schedule is anything but big, it’s just that Gojira (1954) is a little bigger than the rest. Unquestionably the most significant kaiju film ever made, and the one responsible for kicking off a cinematic world that’s still with us six decades later, Gojira is the Citizen Kane of giant monster movies. Legendary director Ishirô Honda, along with special effects creator Eiji Tsuburaya, innovated a variety of techniques that would come to define the giant monster genre, and their use of forced perspective, under cranking, and elaborate miniature work are now inseparable from the kaiju aesthetic in the minds of most moviegoers. From its weighty statements on the evils of atomic warfare to its surprisingly humanist overtones, Gojira is more than just a film starring a guy in a rubber suit, it’s also one of the most cogent political statements ever committed to celluloid. If, rather than quoting the Bhagavad-Gita, Robert Oppenheimer had instead proclaimed “Now I am become Godzilla, destroyer of worlds,” perhaps his point about the first successful nuclear bomb test would’ve carried a little more weight. Of course there’s an obvious chicken-and-egg caveat inherent to that statement, but I’m sure you take my meaning. The point is, there’s a good reason that Gojira spawned the longest running franchise in the history of cinema, and there’s an even better reason to join us at the Fine Arts Theatre to see this iconic film at the scale it deserves. Be there on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m. to find out why size really does matter!
