I realised director of photography Bill Butler had shot the original JAWS for Spielberg, as well as Coppola's THE CONVERSATION...

Rocky IV is an emblematic movie, and constitutes a chapter in popular culture. When it was released in 1985, audiences from all over the world flocked to movie theatres. Rocky IV hits the spot, hard.
Rocky IV is dually symbolic - it embodies both the victory of the American boxer over the Soviet one and the victory of neo-liberalism over a dwindling socialism. The film fed a global popular culture that steamrolled everything in the US, in Europe and in the Eastern bloc countries.

Still today, Rocky is held up as a model by some and is a subject of derision for others. An emblem of the 1980s, its culture and its heroes, the film will be the subject of an entertaining analysis of popular culture - which in itself is highly political.

Tampa Theatre’s Summer Classics this year include a couple different movies about Cold War. The Manchurian Candidate and Dr. Strangelove were both brilliant artistic products of the paranoia and dread in the zeitgeist at the time. But a couple decades later, we had a slightly different relationship with the USSR – and so REWIND is proud to present the greatest documentary of America’s struggle with the specter of Russian Communism: Rocky IV, a movie in which Sylvester Stallone punches an entire ideology to death.

Has any movie franchise turned away from its original premise more drastically than Rocky? The first movie is a serious, composed story about dignity, taking your opportunity and defining success on your own terms. Rocky II is an underwhelming follow-up about how you measure yourself against your biggest challenges. Rocky III is the film debut of both Mr. T and Hulk Hogan. Rocky IV is 40% montage, features a James Brown performance and has a B plot with a comic-relief domestic robot. Aside from the spectacle side-dishes, though, obviously the point of the piece is crass jingoism – Rocky Balboa boxes a Russian steroid monster (Dolph Lundgren) to avenge the death of his friend Apollo Creed and prove the value of good ol’ American hard work. But reader, here’s the real moral: Rocky IV is the most financially successful film in the whole series. It was the single highest-grossing sports movie until The Blind Side came out decades later. It’s undeniable; this is what the people wanted. The invisible hand of the free market threw a knockout punch, and capitalism retained its title. So if you’re mad that this is the direction film culture went, well … if Tampa Theatre can change, and you can change, then maybe everybody can change. Join REWIND and the best fake Gorbachev ever to grace celluloid for Rocky IV.
