#61 – DRIVE ANGRY 3D, HALL PASS, Steve McQueen’s BULLITT and more!

Nicolas Cage stars as Milton, the felon from Hell (the actual inferno-y underworld) in Summit Entertainment's 'Drive Angry 3D'

This week, John and I discuss the Nicolas Cage actioner, Drive Angry 3D, and the Farrelly brothers’ comedy, Hall Pass, starring Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis.

For our picks of the week, John selects 1957’s Sweet Smell of Success on Criterion, and I select two titles from the filmography of director Peter Yates, who passed away last month: the 1969 Dustin Hoffman/Mia Farrow drama John and Mary, and the 1973 Boston crime film The Friends of Eddie Coyle, starring Robert Mitchum.

On March 2nd and 3rd, in tribute to Peter Yates, the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge will screen 35mm prints of two of his films: the quintessential Steve McQueen film Bullitt from 1968, and the rarely seen 1967 British film Robbery, starring Stanley Baker. Click on the film’s title for more information and to buy tickets.

John (Dustin Hoffman) and Mary (Mia Farrow) meet for the first time at Maxwell's Plum, a New York singles bar, in 20th Century Fox's 'John and Mary' (1969), directed by Peter Yates.
