Kamikaze 89 

When: Oct. 14-16, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $4-$6
Few things in life are more entertaining than examining what the people of the past thought the future might look like. German director Wolf Gremm's 1982 film Kamikaze 89 portrays a depressing future where one organization — the Combine — controls all of the world's media. Rainer Werner Fassbinder plays Jansen, a tough cop dressed in a leopard print suit who is sent to find out who is sending bomb threats to the Combine. Fassbinder brings his usual grimy, swaggering confidence to the role as he bashes around a gray metropolis looking for answers, all to the percolating synthesizer soundtrack by Tangerine Dream's Edgar Froese. Kamikaze 89 screens at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (October 14 to 16) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $4 to $6.
