(1959) dir Seijun Suzuki w/Ryoji Hayama, Chako van Leeuwen [88 min; 35mm]
In this stylish film noir, a trombonist goes on an all-night bender after his wife disappears during their honeymoon. When he returns home to find her corpse in their apartment, he sets off on a frantic quest to find her killer by piecing together a night he can’t remember. Suzuki used this classic noir material to play with genre tropes and make expressive use of darkness and light.
