NOIR CITY: HOLLYWOOD - THE 22nd ANNUAL LOS ANGELES FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR
Double Feature!
Cancelled: GUN CRAZY / PALE FLOWER
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Film Noir Foundation

Due to public health concerns, this show has been cancelled. We hope to re-schedule these films later in the year.

GUN CRAZY
1950, Warner Bros., 86 min, USA, Dir: Joseph H. Lewis

A young man (John Dall) infatuated with firearms gets in over his head when he falls for a reckless carnival sharpshooter (Peggy Cummins) with a craving for armed robbery. Arguably the most hyper-charged, adrenaline-fueled B-movie of all time, the film has had a profound impact on several generations of filmmakers, from Jean-Luc Godard to Arthur Penn to Quentin Tarantino. Keep your eye out for a shot south down Las Palmas Avenue where you can see the newsstand and the church that still stand there today!


35 mm!

PALE FLOWER
KAWAITA HANA
1964, Janus Films, 96 min, Japan, Dir: Masahiro Shinoda

Aging yakuza soldier Muraki (Ryô Ikebe) returns from prison to an underworld he barely recognizes. Rival gangs have joined forces and his lethal skills and fealty no longer seem necessary. Adrift as a modern-day ronin, Muraki encounters the beguiling and mysterious Saeko (Mariko Kaga) in a gambling den; her reckless craving for excitement pushes them to dangerous extremes they are unable, or unwilling, to resist. An electrifying masterpiece of existential noir, so sleek and sensual in its imagery, editing and soundtrack it’s almost impossible to believe it was made in 1964. Toru Takemitsu's amazing score artfully combines natural sound and music into a compelling sonic mosaic.


PALE FLOWER in Japanese with English subtitles. | Screening formats: DCP (GUN CRAZY), 35mm (PALE FLOWER)
