Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
ALIAS NICK BEAL
Dir: John Farrow
A true noir rarity! The Faust legend is played out as a supernatural noir thriller, with Ray Milland as the suave devil tempting ambitious DA Thomas Mitchell and fallen woman Audrey Totter in this dark and devious doppelgänger of Capra's IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.
This archetypal British noir tells the taut and tragic tale of young gangster Pinkie (Richard Attenborough) and the turmoil he brings to a beleaguered resort town trying to emerge from the ruins of war. Voted #15 in BFI's poll of Britain's greatest films.
Dir: Jean-Pierre Melville
When a French delegate to the United Nations vanishes into thin air, two French journalists comb nocturnal Manhattan in search of answers. Melville's obsession with the look and sound of American culture is given free rein in this jazzily directed homage to film noir and New York. In French and English with English subtitles.
