The Big Lebowski (1998)
Mixing Leninist philosophy, mistaken identity, crazy characters, a kidnapping plot and a deep love of bowling, Joel and Ethan Coen unleashed upon an unsuspecting world the many glories of 'The Big Lebowski.' Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski, known as "The Dude," a laid-back, easygoing (and Eagles-hating) burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire (David Huddleston) whose wife (Tara Reid) owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money. A soiled rug (that really tied the room together) launches the Dude spiraling through the Los Angeles underworld – with White Russian firmly in hand. Along the way, you're sideswiped by a vast array of bizarre characters, including Vietnam veteran Walter Sobchak (John Goodman), their hapless pal Donny Kerabatsos (Steve Buscemi), and the hotshot purple-clad bowling rival known as The Jesus (John Turturro). The star-studded cast also includes Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Elliott, Ben Gazzara, Peter Stomare, Torsten Voges, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Jon Polito, David Thewlis, singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore and comedian Dom Irrera.

Down By Law
Jim Jarmusch has made some amazing films, and "Down By Law" (1986) stands out among them as one of the strangest prison-break movies of all time. As cool as they come, this film features a score by John Lurie and a soundtrack by Tom Waits, both of whom also star in the movie, along with a very young Roberto Benigni, all three of whom deliver devilishly charming performances. From the backstreets of New Orleans to the backwater bayou, the three unlikely partners weave their way through unlikely adventures wrought with comedy and tragedy.

Film Screening: Get Out
Sac State’s UNIQUE Programs will present a special screening of Jordan Peele’s much-talked-about horror film "Get Out." Immediately following the screening, there will be a panel discussion to discuss the film in a way that provides an understanding of the substance and content embedded in the film. In the film, Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined. The panel discussion will feature Drs. Davin Brown, Michele S. Foss-Snowden and John Johnson.
