Sutherland Tales Opens November 25th

A Canadian national who started his screen career in the UK, Donald Sutherland emerged as a bona fide star at the tail end of the ’60s, a period that was unusually receptive to eccentric leading men. A looming presence at 6′4″, with a long, lean face equally suited to comedy and pathos, and a unique, reedy delivery, Sutherland brought a contemporary counterculture sensibility to two period war films of 1970—Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H and Brian G. Hutton’s Kelly’s Heroes—and he hasn’t been long out of work since, racking up a list of credits that’s rich with classic films and unforgettable performances. At the age of 87, he’s still going strong, so we’re taking a look back over some of the turns in the long, strange trip that has been Sutherland’s career.

Featuring M*A*S*H, Klute [35mm], Space Cowboys [35mm], Don't Look Now [35mm], Ordinary People, Kelly's Heroes [35mm], Fellini's Casanova, Invasion of the Body Snatchers [35mm].

'Sutherland Tales' opens at Metrograph on November 25th.
