Where Film Noir Lives...Too!
AUGUST 10-19, 21-30
“Film noir was an immensely creative period – probably the most creative in Hollywood’s history.”
PAUL SCHRADER, NOTES ON FILM NOIR
We know you missed it when it took a powder last year – because you busted our chops and made us feel real rotten! Well, fear not! Actually, fear a lot! In fact, fall helplessly into a head-spinning, heart-in-your-throat delirium of fear. And fatalism. And darkness, despair, and disillusionment. Crime, corruption and chaos. Venality and greed. Double-crossing dames. Out-of-luck dupes. Yes, Film Noir, Vancouver’s most popular (and pessimistic) summer film series, is back!
“The original noirs remain the most resonant school of movie to have ever emerged in America.”
MICHAEL ATKINSON, TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES
