2008 Fall Film Series: Homage to Film Noir
Night. Rain-slicked city streets, claustrophobic apartments, high-contrast lighting, oddly angled camera shots, femmes fatales pitted against morally weak men, crimes of greed or passion; the film noir look is easy to recognize. Visual poetry heaped with cynical attitude marks a cinema genre scarred with what you might call Greatest Generation PTSD. The tough guys and gals who made it through WWII brought a newly fatalistic world-view to the screen, and while the movies may be in black-and-white, the emotions of lust and corruption are in living color.
?The Big Heat?- Police detective Dave Bannion seeks justice?or is it revenge??against the mob after a personal tragedy. Smoking-hot bad girl Grahame joins his crusade against feral mobster Vince Stone, unforgettable Lee Marvin. (1953) Directed by Fritz Lang. Glenn Ford, Gloria Grahame, Lee Marvin.
Cost: $5 general public; $3.50 students, Museum members, Cinema Inc. & Galaxy Cinema members
We may head out to Edward Mills Grill afterwards!
