For the 6th cycle in The Night and Day Film Noir series curated by Brandon Ryan, Central Cinema is pleased to present John Huston’s “Kiss Me Deadly”.
In this series, the focus will be to examine classic film noir movies spanning to the neo noir genre of modern day films. Film noir, a classic film style of the 1940s and 50s, is noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting. Comprising many of Hollywood’s finest films, film noir tells realistic stories about crime, mystery, femme fatales and moral conflict. While modern day neo noir utilizes elements of classic film noir, but with updated themes, content, style, visual elements or media that were absent or unacceptable to the viewing public in the 40s and 50s.
Night and Day Classic and Modern Film Noir Series. Two world’s consisting of darkness, ambiguity, and moral corruption. The seedy underbelly of the American Dream. Follow our cynical and obsessive anti-heroes throughout the decades celebrating the classic and modern film noir elements characterized by the work of directors, Howards Hawks, Orson Welles, Billy Wilder, John Huston, Christopher Nolan, Rian Johnson, Brian De Palma, The Coen Brothers, and many more.
THE MALTESE FALCON:
In this atomic adaptation of Mickey Spillane’s novel, directed by Robert Aldrich (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, The Dirty Dozen), the good manners of the 1950s are blown to smithereens. Ralph Meeker (Paths of Glory, The Dirty Dozen) stars as snarling private dick Mike Hammer, whose decision one dark, lonely night to pick up a hitchhiking woman sends him down some terrifying byways.
Brazen and bleak, Kiss Me Deadlyis a film noir masterpiece as well as an essential piece of cold war paranoia, and it features as nervy an ending as has ever been seen in American cinema.
