Leadership Institute hosts award-winning ‘Bhutto’ producer Mark Siegel

On Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 6:30 p.m., the MSU Leadership Institute will screen the film “Bhutto” in the Procrastinator Theater, located in the Strand Union Building at MSU.

Co-producer Mark Siegel will be at the screening to lead a post-film discussion. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Northwestern University and has since become one of the foremost experts on political parties and behavior.

“Bhutto” chronicles the story of the first woman to lead a Muslim nation in spite of controversy and political struggles. During her two terms as Prime Minister, Bhutto courageously fought for democracy and women’s rights. Faced with accusations of scandal and corruption, she battled through periods of exile and imprisonment. Her unsolved assassination in 2007 marked tragedy for her Pakistan People’s Party.

The screening is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the MSU Leadership Institute at 406-994-7275 or visit www.montana.edu/leadership.

The Humbling Poster

'The Humbling' features Al Pacino’s best performance in years

Igot a handful of responses to my review of “50 Shades of Grey,” the majority of which went something like this: “how come you’ve got to make fun of us old folks all the time?” Yes, it is true that I have occasionally made jokes at the expense of the “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” crowd. I did so only to cover up an embarrassing truth that I wasn’t ready to face: I am a closeted old person myself. You might have known all along. What else would account for my own fastidious fiber intake, my insistence on mispronouncing the names of contemporary pop stars and my professed super fandom of the novels of Philip Roth?

Why Don’t You Play In Hell poster

'Why Don’t You Play In Hell?' is steeped in love for genre

Great literature, thought-provoking film and fine art are all fine, but as any grizzly bear equipped with speech could tell you, you can learn an awful lot by digging through the garbage. Which tells us more about its time and place: “Amadeus,” or “The Re-Animator,” both out in 1985? Please don’t get me wrong. “Amadeus” is a masterpiece of artistry, but “The Re-Animator,” with its buckets of corn-syrup blood and squelchy effects, might just tell us more about what was going on in our heads in the mid ‘80s. And the wildly chaotic, very funny Japanese genre flick “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” just might tell us all we need to know about cinema in the 2000s.

St. Vincent Poster

'St. Vincent' is the cinematic facsimile of lukewarm booze

Remember when Bill Murray played lovable, anti-authoritarian losers, as in “Stripes,” “Ghostbusters,” “Caddyshack” and “Meatballs”? Murray has always been a talented actor. Though he took a lot of roles that threatened to typecast him, it was one of those situations where typecasting might not be a bad thing. Cary Grant, for instance, didn’t play much of anything except “charming,” while Gary Cooper managed to play “stoic” for the length of an auspicious career. Typecasting isn’t always such a bad thing.
