The Psychotronic Film Society’s ongoing weekly series of underappreciated and overlooked feature films from around the world continues at The Sentient Bean. That night, the PFS salutes Oscar-nominated leading man and character actor Elliot Gould (otherwise known as the ex-Mr. Barbara Streisand) on the occasion of his 79th birthday.
Gould, who came to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s through such films as “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice,” “MASH,” “The Long Goodbye” and “California Split” (the last three directed by Robert Altman), maintains a solid career through to this day, playing memorable and key roles in TV series like “Friends” (he played Ross’ dad), “Ray Donovan” and “Doubt,” and such features as the “Ocean’s Trilogy” (in which he played Reuben Tishkoff).
The exact title of this early, forgotten feature of Gould’s will remain a closely guarded secret until showtime, but it can be said that it’s a little-known, adventurous indie film whose young producer later became one of the most respected and successful directors in Hollywood. Folks are encouraged to take a chance, buy a ticket and be pleasantly surprised by a very odd and entertaining movie they likely never knew existed. Showtime is 8 p.m., with discounts on craft beer and organic wine during the show.
