THE GRIFTERS

Double Feature with BLOOD SIMPLE

(1990) dir Stephen Frears w/Anjelica Huston, John Cusack, Annette Bening [119 min; 35mm]
One of the greatest authors of 1950s pulp fiction, Jim Thompson, became an inspiration for the neo-noir films of the 1990s with no less than 6 of his works adapted between 1989 and 1997. THE GRIFTERS remains the finest of all. It focuses on a phenomenally dysfunctional mother-son pair of criminals and the con-woman who comes between them.

“The Grifters is so good that one leaves the theater on a spellbound high.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times

★★★★ “This is a movie of plot, not episode. It’s not just a series of things that happen to the characters, but a web, a maze of consequences.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
