Double Feature: Premiere of New 4K Restoration! THE BIG LEBOWSKI, 1998, Universal, 117 min. Dir. Joel Coen. “What do you do for recreation?” “Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.” The Dude (a perfectly cast Jeff Bridges) decides to seek satisfaction when he’s mistaken by some German nihilists for an uptight multimillionaire with the same name, Jeffrey Lebowski (David Huddleston). Enlisting the help of his best bowling buddies, short-fuse ’Nam vet Walter (a brilliantly misguided John Goodman) and wimpy Donny (Steve Buscemi), the Dude is determined to get to the bottom of the confusion of identities. With an excellent and appropriately bizarre supporting cast, including a seductive, swing-riding Julianne Moore as Maude Lebowski, John Turturro as bowling rival and pederast “The Jesus,” and Tara Reid as millionaire Lebowski’s bored, pedicured trophy wife.
New Remastered DCP! THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE, 2001, Focus Features, 116 min. Dir. Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. Joel and Ethan Coen’s haunting tale of passion, crime and punishment, all presented in glorious black-and-white. Billy Bob Thornton stars as Ed Crane, a barber in a small Northern California town in 1949 who is dissatisfied with his life - until his wife’s (Frances McDormand) infidelity presents Ed with an opportunity for blackmail that he thinks will help him to change it. However, Ed’s scheme soon unravels and lays bare even darker secrets before leading to murder. Co-starring Michael Badalucco, James Gandolfini, Jon Polito and a young Scarlett Johansson. 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.
