Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: John Carpenter
Oscar-nominated Jeff Bridges delivers a wonderfully offbeat performance as an alien struggling to understand humanity while traveling cross-country with widow Karen Allen - who must cope with the fact that the alien has reincarnated itself in the form of her late husband!
Dir: Michael Cimino
Writer-director Michael Cimino’s first film is a terrific, offbeat heist film and modern-day Western, with pro thief Clint Eastwood trying to elude murderous ex-partners George Kennedy and Geoffrey Lewis with aid from gentle-souled drifter Jeff Bridges. THUNDERBOLT constantly surprises with ingenious plot twists, character-driven humor and a wistful sweetness that is all too rare in most action films.
Dir: John Huston
John Huston, his versatility truly liberated by an evolving New Hollywood cinema, directed this gritty, slice-of-life adaptation of Leonard Gardner’s novel about two boxers, one naïve neophyte (Jeff Bridges), and one on his way down (a brilliant Stacy Keach) with his perpetually drunken mate (the great Susan Tyrell). The faithful evocation of street life in northern California Stockton, its working class heroes and skid row flophouses, where dreams and hopes get crushed out like cigarette butts, is priceless.
