THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE EIGHTH DIMENSION (1984 U.S.) D/P: W.D. RICHTER W: EARL MACRAUCH P: NEIL CANTON
Peter Weller stars as Banzai, a half-Japanese multi-lingual neurosurgeon, rock star, nuclear physicist and jet car driver who has to save Earth from villains Vincent Schiavelli, John Lithgow and Christopher Lloyd in this complex, complicated sci-fi action comedy attempt at creating a new comic book-style superhero series. It`s a mess for sure and doesn`t always work, but it`s different and sometimes fun. With Ellen Burstyn, Jeff Goldblum, Matt Clark, Clancy Brown, Robert Ito, Dan Hedaya, Carl Lumbly and the underappreciated Jonathan Banks. Parts with Jamie Lee Curtis were deleted.
