Coming February 1st, The Neo Noir World of the Coen Brothers is an Egyptian Theatre exclusive.
Of modern filmmakers working today, The Coen Brothers have steadfastly remained the most loyal to the moviemaking values and aesthetics of the past while still manifesting the totally up-to-date, highest standards of contemporary film production. In their unique partnership of co-writing, co-directing and co-producing their projects, Joel and Ethan Coen consistently evoke the ephemeral, the esoteric and the eccentric, embodying a mordantly dark humor, solid storytelling and deeply etched characters. Nowhere are these qualities more evident than in the Brothers’ darkest efforts, their neo-noirs. Reaching perhaps their ultimate zenith in their latest, the hardboiled adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men, this self-assured pair of filmmakers had already laid the groundwork in an astonishing quartet of masterpieces: Blood Simple, Miller’s Crossing, Fargo and Barton Fink.
Friday, February 1 – 7:30 PM the Egyptian Theatre (6712 Hollywood Boulevard, between Las Palmas and McCadden, just east of Highland Avenue in Hollywood) will be showing Blood Simple and Fargo. Saturday, February 2 – 7:30 PM the line-up will be Miller’s Crossing and Barton Fink. For more information: The Neo Noir World of the Coen Brothers
