First up, Greg Proops — one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth — records his latest episode of his lugubrious, salacious, verbacious monthly Film Club podcast live, and then it’s time for a 35mm screening of Sexy Beast. Greg sez: “The ‘newest’ picture ever to screen at the Film Club this year, this Y2K British Gangster classic is a real “cracker.” Ray Winstone is an ex-gangster living in Spain after a long stretch in the joint, hanging out and drinking beer — until, out of nowhere, psychopathic force of nature Ben Kingsley convinces him to do one last bank job organized by suave super-creep, mastermind Ian McShane. Kingsley’s performance is the sadistic icing on this caper scone. He taunts, threatens, wheedles and literally pisses on Winstone, to get him to come back to London and risk it all. Tough guys, tough girls, bisexual bankers, an insane bank caper, Winstone eating a full English breakfast, over 100 F-Bombs and over 20 C-Bombs. You will find new ways to conjugate profanity.” Proops will deconstruct, reanimate and regale this fine classic, plus tackle 467 ancilliary tangents in an expert flick of the verbal wrist. Be there!
Dir. Jonathan Glazer, 2000, 35mm, 89 min.
