Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 258: Tue Sep 15

Fingers (Toback, 1978): Close-Up Cinema, 8pm


This movie, which also screens on September 5th, 10th and 19th, is part of the New Hollywood season at Close-Up Cinema through September and October. You can find all the details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Dauntingly personal filmmaking by James Toback, this 1978 feature is full of strange, suggestive ideas and deep feelings that are never made comprehensible for the audience. Harvey Keitel is a young man caught, rather schematically, between two worlds—his mother is a concert pianist, his father a mafia functionary. His demons tear him apart, with side trips for racism, sexism, and spectacular violence. With Tisa Farrow, Michael V. Gazzo, and Marian Seldes.
