Boxcar Bertha

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Martin Scorsese, Martin Scorsese
1972 / 88min / 35mm

Barbara Hershey’s free-loving small-time criminal Bertha meets her match when she encounters David Carradine’s union organizer Big Bill Shelly, and the two team up to become a pair of hillbilly Robin Hoods, giving the money they get from their brazen train robberies to the needy, making the law desperate to make an example of them. “Scorsese has gone for mood and atmosphere more than for action, and his violence is always blunt and unpleasant—never liberating and exhilarating... We get the feeling we’re inhabiting the dark night of a soul.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
