2007. USA. Dir: Ethan & Joel Coen. With Javier Bardem. 122 min.
A stalwart hunter tries to make off with a million dollars in cash, but finds himself trailed by a mop-headed, bolt gun-wielding hitman – one terrifying force of nature who is definitely not your “friendo.” The Coens’ tense, nihilistic modern Western provides a good approximation of staring death in the eyes (and poorly coiffed hair). Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
Here’s a chill opportunity for this Friday night from the English Majors Committee:
The English Majors Committee presents its second Open Mic, headlined by beloved writer and professor Clifford Chase!
Come read selections for your poetry, short stories, plays, and any other creative works. Fictional and nonfiction welcome. This event is open to the public, not just for English majors. Come to perform, or just come to listen, or just come for the coffee. Come one, come all.
Sign-ups for reading slots are available here. Alternatively, you can also come a few minutes early on Friday to sign up.
Cliff Chase is a writer whose work knows no bounds, crosses over from nonfiction to fiction and back. Chase is the author of Winkie, a novel challenging contemporary America through a teddy bear accused of terrorism. The Hurry-Up Song, meanwhile, is a memoir weaving together the lives of two gay brothers and detailing the pain of one’s eventual loss.

You’re not who you think you are. You’re not who other people think you are. In fact who you really are can’t be “thought” at all. And yet we continue to live our lives as if we were God; as if we were in control; as we were free to set and secure our destiny. The truth is otherwise, and the truth will set you free. Join as he pulls the curtain back from the Great and Terrible Wizard of Self to reveal a little ego with a large megaphone. He will offer practical spiritual advice on how to live holistically and intentionally in a chaotic world. Free Indian Food!
