Charley Varrick

Advance ticket buyers for CHARLEY VARRICK receive reserved seating for the free 8:00pm screening of HELL OR HIGH WATER.

(1973) dir Don Siegel w/Walter Matthau, Joe Don Baker, John Vernon, Andrew Robinson [111 min; DCP]
This underrated thriller follows the ill-fated Charley (Matthau) as he first heads a small-town bank robbery gone wrong and then finds himself on the run from a ruthless mob enforcer (Baker).

“Siegel’s film does form part of the vast crazy-quilt of forgotten and half-remembered violent, lurid genre movies which shaped Quentin Tarantino’s ebullient trash aesthetic.” – Nathan Rabin, AV Club

“Over the course of CHARLEY VARRICK poor Charley buries his wife, runs from the police, runs from the Mafia, loses his partner, loses his house, loses his plane, and spends a heck of a lot of time contending with the incompetence of others. Traditionally we call the person in this string of situations ‘unlucky.'” Contributor Matt Hannigan writes about CHARLEY VARRICK for Brattle Film Notes. Read more →
