Sex & Death & Venetian Blinds: Neo-Noir of the 1980s & 90s

75th Anniversary of Film Noir, Part 3

Wednesday, January 6 – Thursday, January 14, 2016

Continuing our year-long celebration of film noir on the occasion of its 75th birthday, we delve into the world of neo-noir – that is films made using elements of film noir but outside of it’s classic period (1940-1958). For this particular series, we focus on the neo-noir films made during the 1980s and 1990s when an explosion in popularity filled movie screens with sultry femme fatales, hapless everyman heroes, corrupt cops, convoluted plots, and a plethora of sliced shadows due to a practically pathological fetishization of venetian blinds. Join us for this knockout line-up of stylistically bold and provocative cinema ranging from 1981’s BODY HEAT to HARD EIGHT from 1996 – the directorial debut of Paul Thomas Anderson. (N.B. Unfortunately, the apotheosis of ‘90s neo-noir, L.A. Confidential, is unavailable for theatrical screenings at this time.)
