The Cinematheque presents
Film Noir 2019 & Jean-Pierre Melville: Master of French Noir
The Cinematheque embarks on its annual summer season of the sleazy, fatalistic nightmare known as Film Noir. This year’s celebration of classic American cinema’s most depraved and downbeat film movement showcases ten hard-boiled treasures, each an important noir essential or a ripe-for-rediscovery rarity.
In a parallel program, our August calendar also features a select retrospective of the films of Jean-Pierre Melville, the influential director whose très cool neo-noir thrillers, including BOB LE FLAMBEUR and LE SAMOURAÏ, epitomized French crime cinema.
