Motorcycles On Screen
Get revved up with these classic and recent motorbike flicks.
What has two wheels and an engine, and has powered its way across roads in real life and on cinema screens for quite some time? The humble motorbike, of course. Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art is paying tribute to the method of transportation across its big summer exhibition — and, as the South Brisbane site tends to, it's pairing that showcase with a heap of movies on the subject as well.
From Saturday, November 28–Sunday, April 25, GOMA's Australia Cinematheque is revving up the projector to play all sorts of flicks that feature motorcycles. And, spanning obvious choices such as Easy Rider, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and The Motorcycle Diaries, plus more creative choices like Fantastic Mr Fox, Akira, and both Tron and Tron: Legacy, it's all 100-percent free to attend.
Other highlights range from classics like The Wild One and The Great Escape, Aussie fare including three out of four Mad Max films, and John Waters' Cry-Baby, to top-notch documentary Finke: There and Back, the Ryan Gosling-starring The Place Beyond the Pines and the original version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Don't miss the chance to see excellent Asian fare such as The Villainess, Kaili Blues and The Wild Goose Lake on the silver screen, or the Marx brothers' Duck Soup, Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday or a very young Willem Dafoe in The Loveless, either. And, if you haven't already watched and rewatched Andy Samberg comedy Hot Rod countless times (or even if you have), that's on the Motorcycles On Screen lineup as well.
