Kiss Me Deadly

Tonight (Thursday, March 17), the International House is screening Aldrich's baroque noir Kiss Me Deadly (1955) in all it's 35mm sumptuousness. It's a cult classic that's about... well, I won't spoil the ending for those who don't already know. I'll just say it's an over-the-top and remarkable narrative.

As a bonus, Village Voice critic J Hoberman will be in person to discuss the film and to promote more generally his new book, An Army of Phantoms: American Movies and the Making of the Cold War. Screening starts at 7:00pm, with book signing to follow.
