Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
WAIT UNTIL DARK
Dir: Terence Young
The original tagline perfectly captures the spine-tingling chill of Terence Young’s notorious thriller: “The blinds moving up and down… The squeaking shoes… And then the knife whistling past her ear.” Audrey Hepburn stars as Susy Hendrix, a blind woman terrorized by a duo of thugs and psychopathic mastermind Roat (Alan Arkin) as they search for a doll stuffed with heroin believed to be in her apartment. Hepburn received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her frighteningly believable performance.
Dir: Lewis Gilbert
Easily the best of the 1970s Bond films, SPY stars the impeccable Roger Moore as 007, teaming with icy Russian agent Barbara Bach to thwart underwater kingpin Curt Jurgens and his lethal arsenal - including metal-toothed hitman Jaws (Richard Kiel) and femme fatale Naomi (Caroline Munro). Terrific stunts, a sharp, witty script by Christopher Wood and sexy, world-saving adventure courtesy of Moore & Co. Everything a Bond film should be.
Dir: Robert Bresson
A jealous woman (María Casares, in a piercing performance) takes revenge on the man who spurned her (Paul Bernard) by tricking him into marriage with a prostitute (Elina Labourdette). Jean Cocteau wrote the dialogue for this glistening drama of revenge, which, despite its elegantly acid language and luxe setting, is remarkably Bressonian in its emphasis on entrapment, sacrifice and redemption. In French with English subtitles.
