Raising Arizona

3:00pm Sunday, June 18

The Coen brothers remain maybe the best argument for disregarding auteur theory. Who’s more primarily in control of a movie—the director? The screenwriter? Of course it’s both, working in harmony, and no pair has produced a more distinctive and genius body of work over a longer period than Joel & Ethan Coen. Raising Arizona proved that their first major movie, Blood Simple, wasn’t a fluke; their instinct for comedy and hilarious character work was just as sharp as their feel for simmering noir drama. Nicholas Cage is a bumbling criminal who wants to go straight and start a family with his doting wife (Holly Hunter), and his felonious buddies (a standout performance by John Goodman) tempt him back to shenanigans with a way to solve both problems at once. A perfect film for Father’s Day (if your Dad has a good sense of humor), it’s full of awful people you love watch being awful, and it still feels as fresh and funny as the day it came out.

1h 34m/Rated PG-13/Comedy

Immediately after the film, USF film professor Harriet Deer will lead a short discussion of Raising Arizona and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission.
