Brooklyn-born actor Elliott Gould, who now lives in Los Angeles, returns home to do two Q&As at BAMs film series Elliott Gould: Star for an Uptight Age (the name is taken from the headline of Times September 1970 cover story about the idiosyncratic actors rapid rise to stardom in uncertain times). See him after tonights 6:30 p.m. screening of Alan Arkins Little Murders (1971), the film adaptation of Jules Feiffers original 1967 Broadway play (which Gould also starred in), about a young man, Alfred, a devout apathist, who falls in love with Patsy, a demented optimist, and then meets her dysfunctional family in the crime-infested New York of the late 60s. Then see him again on Saturday after the 6:30 p.m. screening of Robert Altmans classic The Long Goodbye (1973). As Gould is known for his garrulousness, you wont want to miss these two madcap and lively conversations. At 6:30, tonights Q&A will be followed by an after-party presented by The Onion.
