Discount for NWFF members to Steve McQueen series at SAM

October 14, 2009

And it looks like a good one:

King of Cool:
The Films of Steve McQueen
Thursdays, January 7–March 11, 2010, 7:30 pm
SAM Downtown, Plestcheeff Auditorium

Steve McQueen (1930–1980) would have been eighty years old in 2010, but he’ll always be the cinematic King of Cool, maintaining a Zen master’s composure in the midst of high drama. The iconic movie star with the bright blue eyes and beaming smile was also one of the screen’s best actors. The aggressive yet sensitive and vulnerable product of a painful broken-home childhood and rebellious adolescent run-ins with the law, McQueen drew on deeply personal emotions for his performances. Audiences were touched and electrified by the authenticity of McQueen’s humanity and the complexity of his simplicity, the way his stillness and silence could speak volumes. He knew that his thoughtful eyes could “give you a look that says it all,” that a cool demeanor could express intense feelings. As one of his characters says “I’m working. You just can’t see it.”
