SCREENING

Raggedy Man

Ongoing

Dir. Jack Fisk. 1981, 94 mins. 35mm. With Sissy Spacek, Eric Roberts, Sam Shepard. Jack Fisk’s directorial debut is an alternately gentle and unsettling 1940s-set romantic drama starring Sissy Spacek (Fisk’s longtime wife) as a divorced switchboard operator in Texas falling in love with a handsome young sailor on leave (Roberts) to the chagrin of her small-town neighbors; at the same time she and her two young sons (including E.T.’s Henry Thomas, in his first role) are haunted by a mysterious, scarecrow-like figure. Unsurprisingly, Fisk’s film is a precisely detailed, expertly designed period piece.
