Lit Flicks: Steven Soderbergh’s “Out of Sight”
February 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm PST$16
Special guest speaker: Eddie Muller (Noir City, TCM’s Noir Alley).
Talk at 7:30 pm, screening at 7:50 pm.
George Clooney. Handsome, classy, and undeniably the most suave man in Hollywood. His grin alone can melt every woman’s heart in a hundred mile radius, and his cockiness is the envy of dudes the world over. He’s one smooth operator, and no film exemplifies that better than OUT OF SIGHT.
As Jack Foley, Clooney plays a bank robber who escapes from prison and winds up stuck in the trunk of his getaway car with U.S. Marshall Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez, in arguably her best role). After she’s released, Sisco remains in hot, and I mean HOT, pursuit of Foley (and who can blame her?)
We all want to hunt down George Clooney for the crime of devastating us with his charm, but Jennifer Lopez might be the only one sexy enough to catch him. Also starring the excellent male specimens of Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames, and Dennis Farina, this film, based on the novel by the legendary Elmore Leonard, is guaranteed to give you plenty of opportunities to swoon, fist pump, and worship at the altar of Clooney.
