There is no film experience quite like Tom Schiller’s NOTHING LAST FOREVER. Set in a gleaming black and white alternate movie past, with a deeply subversive and ironic sense of humor. Schiller, whose filmed Saturday Night Live segments are some of the most fondly remembered moments from that long running show, translates his razor sharp comic vision to the big screen with the help of such talented comics as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Imogene Coca and Zack Galligan. The plot concerns a young man who aspires to become an artist while living in a dystopian future/past New York City. After a series of work and romantic misadventures he ends up on a tourist bus to the moon where he falls in love while trying to avoid the pitfalls of the lunar tourist trap and its vicious enforcer (Bill Murray). A masterpiece of off-the-wall humor.
