Double Feature with TRAINWRECK (4:30, 9:15)

(2016) dir Joel & Ethan Coen w/Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Channing Tatum [106 min; DCP]
Though considered A Serious Actress for most of her career, in recent years Swinton has become more and more interested in comedy – much of it pretty over the top. In this homage to the politically complicated Golden Age of Hollywood, she practically steals the film as a pair of twin gossip columnists.

“An unexpectedly sweet and utterly satisfying confection, a loving sendup of the Hollywood of yesteryear.” – Christopher Orr, The Atlantic

“A hipster mash note to the way things used to be, it will put a smile on your face and keep it there for the duration.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“A wild whoosh of Coen brothers wizardry that left me laughing helplessly and filled with spiritual dread. That’s the Coens for you. They’re indispensable.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“A charming consolidation of their appeal that both celebrates and mocks its target. In short, catnip for Coen fans.” – Eric Kohn, indieWire
