The first film of our 2015 Midtown Classics Series, BADLANDS! Tickets: https://www.landmarktheatres.com/Booking/midtown-art-cinema/1098706 Terrence Malik's 1973 crime film, based on a true story, Badlands is narrated by Holly (Spacek), a teenage girl living in a dead-end South Dakota town. One day she meets Kit (Sheen), a young, troubled, psychopathic greaser, who charms and runs away with her. Holly's narration, describing her adventures with Kit in romantic clich├ęs, is juxtaposed as Kit's increasingly antisocial and violent behavior is slowly revealed. The two are eventually arrested; Kit is executed for his crimes, while Holly receives probation.
