Vegas Highs, Vegas Lows
Phyllis Wattis Theater
Las Vegas is a topsy-turvy world that seems to defy taste, a world where what’s bad is good, and what’s good is bad. The same goes for more than a few films about Vegas. In this series, what would normally be taken as a vacant spectacle suffering from an existential crisis reveals itself to be a unique cinematic gem that epitomizes the peculiar character of the place itself. In conjunction with Double Down, SFMOMA presents some of the high points of Las Vegas film—and some low points that became high points, given time.
Curated by Steve Anker, dean, School of Film/Video, California Institute of the Arts
