NOT NECESSARILY NOIR
Two THRILLING Weeks of Unusual Motion Picture Entertainment!
For the past twenty years the Roxie has been presenting a steady diet of pure bred 100% All-American Film Noir. Now comes an exciting new cavalcade of boundary benders that beg the issue of just what constitutes the whole notion of noir—a whopping twenty-four films of mixed genres, spanning the years 1941 through 1999—all with a decidedly bent perspective on the human condition.
ALL PROGRAMS ARE DOUBLE FEATURES; TWO GREAT FILMS FOR ONE LOW ADMISSION PRICE! ALL FILMS (UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED) PRESENTED IN 35mm PRINTS! MOST NOT AVAILABLE ON DVD!
This breathtaking array of dark cinematic diversity offers up a thoroughly mixed bag of styles and genres—from the demented and disquieting horror noir hybrids of the 1940s (THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK and HOUSE OF HORRORS) to the cold war shivers induced by 1950s sci-fi noir (INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS and THE CREEPING UNKNOWN), to cult western noir from the 50s (DAY OF THE OUTLAW and TERROR IN A TEXAS TOWN), to 1960s mindbenders (MIRAGE, THE SADIST, MICKEY ONE), to the brutal violence of 70s shockers (OBSESSION, LAST EMBRACE, BLUE COLLAR, HARDCORE, ROLLING THUNDER) to the post-mod neo-noir of the 80s and beyond (BREATHLESS, THIEF, CUTTER’S WAY, BAD LIEUTENANT).
