Double Feature: NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, 2007, Park Circus/Miramax, 122 min. A mesmerizing thriller from Academy Award-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning American master Cormac McCarthy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. When Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men with a load of heroin and $2 million in cash still in the back, a chain reaction of catastrophic violence begins that not even the law - in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) - can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers - in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (Javier Bardem) - the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
BLOOD SIMPLE, 1984, Janus Films, 99 min. Dir. Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Hangdog Texas bar owner Marty (Dan Hedaya) hires a corrupt and corpulent detective (M. Emmet Walsh) to kill Abby, his unfaithful wife (Frances McDormand), and her lover (John Getz). What follows from this simple, familiar crime premise is one of the most assured moviemaking debuts of the 1980s. Full of intuitively stylish bite, poisonous one-liners and goosebump-inducing setpieces, this neo-noir put Joel and Ethan Coen on the map of filmmakers to watch. Introduction by author Adam Nayman, who will sign his new book, The Coen Brothers: This Book Really Ties the Films Together, in the lobby at 6:30 PM.
