If there’s anything simple about Coen Bros. pictures, it may be the dumb schlubs they put on screen that think they’ve got everything figured out. Their first film in a career spent exploring the dark borderlands between comedy and tragedy rolls out all their signature trademarks: double crosses, macabre humor, false assumptions, guilt, fear, loathing, dubious schemes spiraling wildly out of control, and yes…murder.

About The Film Club
Join us for The Music Hall Film Club, our newest social group! Over the course of six months, we’ll be focusing on a particular outstanding director, genre, or artist. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we’ll show a film followed by a lively, participatory discussion. Curators Bill and Stella Pence, founders of the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the Music Hall’s Telluride by the Sea Film Festival, have chosen Hit The Ground Running! to kick off the 2017/2018 season, Trevor Bartlett, cinema aficionado, will be our host and guide.
A must for all Telluride lovers, film discussion buffs, and all-around cinephiles!
