American Cool: DIRTY HARRY
April 14 @ 6:50 pm
‘American Cool’ is a new series dedicated to examining the pathology of Hollywood’s finest countercultural icons. Whether they’re the neglected souls led astray by the trappings of patriarchy and capitalism or the ostensibly noble ones who benefit from the system, they have one thing in common: they’re a joy to watch.
“You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” – Harry Calahan
“If there aren’t mentalities like Dirty Harry’s at loose in the land, then the movie is irrelevant. If there are, we should not blame the bearer of the bad news.” – Roger Ebert
“Seminal law-and-order cinema.” – Time Out
Cop Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) attempts to track down a psychopathic rooftop killer before a kidnapped girl dies. When he is found Harry abuses the murderer’s civil rights putting him back on the streets. Once he is released he hijacks a school bus and Harry must go after him again. The only way to stop this vicious killer is in cold blood.
Dir. Don Siegel. 1971. 102 minutes.
