Joel and Ethan Coen, the beloved filmmaking duo, have been gathering a cult following with their unique blend of darkly comic -- or just flat-out dark or comic -- films for over thirty years. From Fargo to O Brother, Where Art Thou? to No Country For Old Men and The Hudsucker Proxy, the brothers' films have attracted a dedicated fan base eager to devour every project. Followers will have to wait until 2016 to see their next movie, Hail, Caesar!, but thanks to two popular local film lovers, The Church of Coen is now open for worship.
|Show your devotion at the Church of Coen.|
Starting this Sunday, and continuing every second Sunday of the month thereafter, Syntax Psychic Opera will host free screenings of all the Coen Brothers films, in chronological order. This homage is the brainchild of Theresa Mercado, curator of the Cruel Summer/Winter/Spring film series and the Alamo's new Screen Scream, and Ian O'Dougherty, musician and producer with Uphollow, Tauntaun and Ian Cooke, who have a shared history of Coen love.
