Mask: Director’s Cut

1985, 127m, 35mm, U.S.

In need of a comeback picture, Bogdanovich delivered this affecting tearjerker in which teenager Eric Stoltz struggles to lead a normal life despite a deformed skull, supported by mom Cher and her biker boyfriend Sam Elliott. Originally released with a soundtrack of Bob Seger hits, this cut reinstates the Bruce Springsteen tracks removed when the producers were unable to clear the music rights.
