Feb 9, 6pm MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER (1971) Robert Altman (121 mins.)
Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, Hungarian cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, and iconoclastic American filmmaker Robert Altman combine forces to bring us this wintry, sepia-toned anti-Western…one of the best films of the 1970s. Set in Presbyterian Church, Washington and shot in a suitably even more wintry West Vancouver (in the middle of winter!), Altman’s film perfectly captures the mood of the early 1970s. Beautifully shot, lots of overlapping dialogue, downbeat music cues…Warren Beatty, Julie Christie. This one will make you miss Altman, the 1970s, Leonard…. The snow, maybe not so much!
Themed Drink: The McCabe
