The Goldblum Variations

At 6’4” tall, Jeff Goldblum can’t help but draw the eye; his striking looks express level-gaze intensity or offbeat charm while his voice is by turns seductive and quizzical—with diction that’s tuned in to its own private frequency, compelling not only the audience but also his co-stars to lean in closer. While his career extends to theatre (he studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse) and TV, with his brainy wit, loping physicality, and oddball charisma, Goldblum belongs on the big screen. On the occasion of our NY premiere run this month of the restoration of Joan Micklin Silver’s Between the Lines, featuring a scene-stealing deadpan turn from Goldblum, the Quad pays tribute to an icon of idiosyncratic individuality.
