What do Kathryn Bigelow, Tony Scott, Walter Hill, William Friedkin, Oliver Stone, and Martin Scorsese have in common? They are just a few directors who have worked with Film Independent Spirit Award winner and Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe? This protean performer has moved so effortlessly from hero to villain, supporting character actor to leading man, comedy to drama, and independent landmark to studio classic that his talent has kept him working with the most in-demand —and demanding—filmmakers since he started his career in 1982. Dafoe—whose 21st-century work includes «The Grand Budapest Hotel,» «Nymphomaniac,» «Justice League,» «Murder on the Orient Express,» and «The Florida Project»—is the latest to become of the “An Evening with…” series which means he’ll discuss his breadth of his career after a 25th anniversary screening of Light Sleeper, the first film he made with writer/director Paul Schrader. Light Sleeper follows a drug dealer pushing through the streets New York, a man who sells pleasure but is himself incapable of receiving it, a project in which Dafoe's works shine and which he can ably address.
