MAN’S CASTLE and THE MAYOR OF HELL

“A neglected masterpiece… Few love stories have achieved the emotional intensity of Man’s Castle, and most of the others belonged to Borzage as well. He possessed the most delicate romantic sensibility in the movies, and his films are pervaded by a sublime spiritual quality that no one else has been able to capture.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

2:40, 6:10, 9:40

“The power, the vigor, the surge and flow of real issues and psychological problems make The Mayor of Hell an interesting and stimulating drama.”
– The New York Times
