The Grindhouse Film Festival presents an extremely rare 35mm print of
this underrated 70’s counterculture crime masterpiece. A tribute to
director Michael Cimino.
THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT (1974) Seven
years after a daring bank robbery, the group of thieves temporarily put
aside their mistrust of each other to repeat the crime after they are
unable to find the hidden loot from the original heist. A hardened
and an irresponsible young drifter
form an uneasy alliance against the rest of the dangerous
thieves. Stylish, action packed, hilarious and ultra-bizarre, this was
the directorial debut of Michael Cimino (THE DEER HUNTER). One of the
great, overlooked American films of the 1970’s, don’t miss this
incredibly rare big screen appearance!
