The Filmosophers Movie Talk

This 1st Fridays Art Walk is Art In Film & Photography. The talented and creative Hail, Caesar! posterTracy McCormick will detail some of the films available for us to enjoy in the cultural district.

The Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country For Old Men) are one of most accomplished filmmakers of our time. So we're delighted that their latest film Hail, Caesar! is opening in the midst of a usually dreary time for significant films. It's an "all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix." "There are the serious Coen brothers movies, like "No Country for Old Men" and there are the not-so-serious ones (like "The Big Lebowski"). "Hail, Caesar!" is the opposite of their serious ones, and it is delightful. - Ty Burr, Boston Globe. "This is one of my favorite movies ever made about making movies." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. "Underneath the laff-riot and the Hollywood satire, "Hail, Caesar!" is a curiously delicate film built on profound affection for American movies and the illusions they build. - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.

We'll talk about that, other new releases, what we've seen and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Would that it t'were so simple" - Laurence Lorenz, Hail Caesar!
