Of the European émigré directors who instilled a distinctive impressionistic style into American cinema beginning in the 1930s, few have been more overlooked than John Brahm. His exquisite use of the camera combined with a personal yen for the psychologically offbeat resulted in his specialization in film noir (LET US LIVE, THE LOCKET) and gaslight horror (THE LODGER, HANGOVER SQUARE).


Thu, Jul 9, 2015 - Sun, Jul 12, 2015
