This June, the BFI Southbank will present the first part of a season dedicated to Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges. The tribute, to unspool at the National Film Theater, will present some of the best known and sleeper films from the actor’s prolific career that spans six decades and over 60 films. Among the films on tap are THE LAST PICTURE SHOW (1971), FAT CITY (1972), BAD COMPANY (1972), THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT (1974) and TRON (1984). The season also will include a rare screening of the sleeper classic CUTTERS WAY (1981), a neglected film from director Ivan Passer. A second season planned for later in the year will cover Bridges’ work from the late 1980s to his current hits such as CRAZY HEART and TRUE GRIT.
