Hal Hartley in person for the 7:30pm show on 2/1.
Eight years after Henry Fool, Hartley picks up with Fay, Parker Posey’s spurned spouse to the first film’s grifter anti-hero, looking for clues as to where Henry has disappeared to and who he was in the journals he left behind, also of interest to two CIA agents played by Leo Fitzpatrick and Jeff Goldblum. Provincial domestic comedy meets international thriller and scathing spy spoof, all in Hartley’s signature cadence. “Possibly the most astute allegory about the U.S.’s role in our current war… Posey beautifully embodies bewilderment and melancholy.”—Slant Magazine
