Bringing an unprecedented combination of class, cynicism, and despair as a successful Los Angeles private eye, Jack’s entrance into the big leagues of studio pictures both dismantles and epitomizes the noir detective tradition. Robert Towne’s Oscar winning screenplay defies not just the conventions of a familiar Hollywood genre, but exposes the greed, deceit, and depravity of Hollywood itself.

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 Jack! for the second half of the 2016 season! Trevor Bartlett, cinema aficionado, will be our host and guide.
A must for all Telluride lovers, film discussion buffs, and all-around cinephiles!
