The Psychotronic Film Society’s ongoing weekly series of underappreciated or marginalized features from around the world continues at The Sentient Bean. July 11, they’ll screen the unintentionally funny 1985 German-made action-crime flick “Macho Man,” starring real-life European Boxing Champion René Weller as a boxer who joins forces with a respected karate champ to clean up the city of Nuremburg, Germany, by destroying its underground drug trade.
Packed with fight scenes that alternate between legitimately impressive and laugh-out-loud unrealistic and a script and acting that can charitably be described as “amateurish,” this well-intentioned dud should appeal to anyone who appreciates “best worst movies.” Never released anywhere other than West Germany and Greece, it is completely unknown in the U.S. The PFS will screen a rare, fully uncut version with English subtitles. Come prepared to laugh. 8 p.m. showtime, with discounts on organic wine and craft beer during the show. Tickets are $7.
