This career-spanning double feature from the Oscar-winning Coen brothers (Fargo) starts with their explosive neo-noir debut, Blood Simple, and follows with a latter-day masterpiece, their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's crime drama No Country for Old Men. With this Double Take offer from the Washington Jewish Film Festival, you can either settle in for a double feature, or split the films over two dates. Joel and Ethan Coen burst onto the film scene with their bracing debut, which stars Frances McDormand (marking the beginning of their nearly three-decade partnership) and character actor extraordinaire M. Emmet Walsh. Chock-full of double-crosses, deceit and murder, Blood Simple stands as one of the best homages to the noir films of the '40s. In No Country for Old Men, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) stumbles on a suitcase full of drug money, setting off a chain reaction of violence as a relentless assassin hunts him down. A crime drama that is somehow simultaneously entertaining and mythic in scope, No Country for Old Men boasts an all-star cast in top form, including Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem and Woody Harrelson.

The Cantor had a wonderful voice but Yiddish songs that I heard as a child were sung by ordinary people......so the words were more distinct and the melody more down to earth. There were at least three or four songs that I heard my Mother and Grandmother sing and that was most enjoyable. Overall a joyous evening of music. Thank you.
