Part of Holiday Classics.
Tue, Dec 21 at 8:40pm: Introduction from film critic Jason Shawhan | BUY TICKETS
Two-bit crook Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey Jr.) stumbles into an audition for a mystery film while on the run from the cops. Winning the part, he lands in Hollywood — where he’s flung into a tangled, murderous conspiracy with his childhood sweetheart, Harmony Lane (Michelle Monaghan) and hard-boiled private eye Perry van Shrike (Val Kilmer). This deadpan, affectionate parody of film noir tropes is named for film critic Pauline Kael’s influential 1968 collection of film reviews and essays.
“The deliriously enjoyable noir comedy-thriller KISS KISS BANG BANG does nothing by halves and everything by doubles.” —Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly “It's one nutty holiday fruitcake that is appetizing and tasty.” —Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun
