Wednesday February 29th: Editor’s Pick

6:50, 9:30 at BAMcinématek [Program & Tix]

COUP DE TORCHON
Tavernier | 1981 | France | 128m
“A Hell of A Writer: Jim Thompson”
6:50, 9:30 at BAM

“A rowdy, broad, unsettling moral tale. Tavernier follows screwball comedy out to its other side as madness: you’re never sure whether what you’re watching is high spirits or insanity, and the characters keep reversing themselves. One of the freshest French films in years—it has wit, dash, and fiber.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader [Read More]
