BARCELONA

Ed Hemsler (John Lithgow) spends his life preparing for a disaster that may never come. Ronnie Meisner (Blythe Danner) spends her life shopping for things she may never use.

WHO’S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
1967, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese took the filmmaking world by storm at the 1967 Chicago International Film Festival with this New York City-set drama that is steeped in cinema history while forging ahead towards something new. Shrouded in the fog of Catholic guilt which so informs his later films, WHO’S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR is a haunting story of a young couples’ reckoning with a traumatizing event. Featuring the acting debut of Harvey Keitel, along with a memorable performance by Zina Bethune, the film, as critic Roger Ebert observed upon its premiere, was “absolutely genuine” and “a great moment in American movies.”
