Wednesday August 8th: Editor’s Pick

4:30, 6:50, 9:15 at BAMcinématek [Program & Tix]

THE THIN MAN
Van Dyke | 1934 | US | 93m
“American Gagsters:
Great Comedy Teams”
4:30, 6:50, 9:15 at BAM

The Thin Man is essentially a drawing-room comedy with dead bodies. The plot is so preposterous that no reasonable viewer can follow it, and the movie makes little effort to require that it be followed. Nick Charles typically stands in the midst of inexplicable events with a drink in his hand, nodding wisely as if he understands everything and is not about to share. When a reporter asks him, ‘Can’t you tell us anything about the case?’ Nick replies: ‘Yes. It’s putting me way behind in my drinking.'”
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
