Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 24th at 3:20 for The Killing at the AFI Silver. Look for Elizabeth wearing a gray Joan Jett t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Stanley Kubrick was 27 when he directed his third feature, creating one of film noir’s most influential works. This film marked a key transition between the end of the classic noir cycle of the ’40s and ’50s and the neonoir period of the ’60s and ’70s. Ex-con hard case Sterling Hayden assembles a crew of colorful lowlifes to pull off a daring daytime racetrack heist. Poor judgment, bad luck and a faithless wife conspire to undo their big score, and as things fall apart, this time-fractured puzzle of a story comes together. The screenplay was co-written by Kubrick and pulp great Jim Thompson; the sharp cinematography is by Lucien Ballard.
DIR/SCR Stanley Kubrick, based on the novel Clean Break by Lionel White; PROD James B. Harris. US, 1956, b&w, 85 min. NOT RATED
This film is being screened as part of the 2010 Film Noir Festival. Appearing in person will be Foster Hirsch of The Film Noir Foundation.
