Member Picks showcases the movies that inspired the Moxie’s biggest supporters.
Every month, one member picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
February's pick was made by moxie member Michael Allhands.
**What do you love about this particular film, and why do you want to share it with others?**
_I saw this movie back in the early 90's when I was just beginning to really expand the types of movies I was watching and was immediately spellbound by the stylized gangster dialogue. Then add in the gorgeous look of the film, a score that is just perfect (it's somehow morose and whimsical at once), and all the usual Coen Brothers' flourishes and I was hooked for life._
**Why are you a Moxie member?**
_As a member, I love feeling I am supporting art in my community and hopefully allowing others to experience it more easily by doing so. Plus, the free admission to the multitude of special screenings that are always on the calendar is amazing._
