The Missouri Breaks | USA | 1976 | 35mm | 126 min. Director: Arthur Penn
Sunday, March 19, 2017
Cast: Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando, Randy Quaid Real-life next-door neighbors Brando and Nicholson made only one film together, this dark and odd 70s Western from acclaimed auteur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde). Nicholson plays the leader of a gang of horse thieves who are hunted by Brando, a highly eccentric hired killer who occasionally works in drag. John Williams’ music is appropriately minimalist and moody.
