Directed by Hal Hartley • 1992 • United States
Starring Robert John Burke, Bill Sage, Karen Sillas
Dennis (Bill Sage) is a quietly handsome and bookish college student. His older brother, Bill (Robert John Burke), is a rough-hewn ladies’ man and thief. Thrown together to search for their long-lost fugitive dad, they confront their expectations of each other, themselves, and their attitudes toward women. Complete with a musical sequence set to Sonic Youth’s “Kool Thing,” SIMPLE MEN unfolds as a drolly absurdist road movie as only Hal Hartley could craft.
