Directed by Harold Ramis, featuring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliot, Stephen Tobolowsky (1993). Follow a caustic Pittsburgh weatherman and confirmed cynic as he lives the same day over and over again for perhaps as long as 10,000 years as he passes through his own version of the stages of grief: bewilderment, desperation, depression, hedonism, fatigue and hope. Critics have compared the film to Luis Buñuel’s The Exterminating Angel and Alain Renais’s Last Year at Marienbad and pointed out the film outlines a primer on western philosophy as well as a reasoned case for Zen Buddhism. Based on a story by Danny Rubin (103 min.) #BoulderFilmSpeak convenes after the screening at Food at the Riverside.
