Mickey One (1965)

Directed by Arthur Penn

Arthur Penn’s New Wave-influenced, jazz riff on film noir and post-war alienation was years ahead of its time and still casts a hypnotic spell as Warren Beatty’s stand-up comic tries to out run the mob.

35mm, b/w, 93 min.

Blast of Silence (1961)

Directed by Allen Baron

Get deep inside the rage-fuelled psyche of a brutal hit man as he stalks the city and his prey in what Bright Lights Film Journal called, “the great lost masterpiece of film noir; a twilit, deathward emanation of everything that had underlain the form from its beginnings.”

35mm, b/w, 77 min.
