Program Description

Event Details

"As Miracle Mile zigzags forward, its scenes of 4 A.M. panic on nearly empty streets have an antic comic energy that recalls the long night of American Graffiti. One scene in which a couple of policemen are set on fire in a gas station has the giddy sense of reckless adventure that almost cancels the horror of the incineration. And as Harry decides to rescue his true love rather than flee as fast as he can, his romanticism seems as dubiously impulsive as his readiness to believe a strange voice on the telephone." - Stephen Holden (New York Times)
