Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 14: Sat Jan 14

Caught (Ophuls, 1949): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.20pm


This 35mm screening is part of the 'Martin Scorsese Curates' season at BFI Southbank. The film is also being shown at the cinema on January 9th. Details here.

Chicago Reader review:
European exile Max Ophuls looks at American materialism in this 1949 story of a woman's involvement with a Howard Hughes-ish millionaire, and finds it just as stifling as the old-world variety. Ophuls's famous tracking shots seem to define absences instead of spaces, moving through a desert of shadows and cold surfaces. With James Mason, Barbara Bel Geddes, and Robert Ryan.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
