BLAST OF SILENCE and THE THIEF

BLAST OF SILENCE

(1960, Allen Baron) Le Samourai, Gotham style: writer/director Baron as a hired killer, taking his time setting up the hit. Approx. 77 min. 35mm.
SUN 1:00, 4:20, 7:45 MON 1:00, 4:20, 7:45

"A cool, edgy noir… With its finger-popping jazz score and beat-inspired interior monologue (in second person, no less), this might seem comical if it weren't so rooted in existential dread."
– J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader

 

“Mixes a tense, stark photographic style and eerie location footage with a non-stop voiceover that reeks of alienation.”
– Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

BLAST OF SILENCE and THE THIEF

THE THIEF

(1952, Russell Rouse) Eerily dialogue-less tour de force as spying scientist Ray Milland’s desperate flight leads to sudden death. With a locker assignation at the old Penn Station and a chase atop the Empire State Building. Approx. 85 min. 16mm.
SUN 2:35, 6:00, 9:20 MON 2:35, 6:00
