This 35mm screening is part of the 'Martin Scorsese Curates' season at BFI Southbank. The movie is also being shown at the cinema on February 27th. Full details here.
Behind a bland generic title lurks a truly unsettling film noir. It starts straightforwardly enough, as a demobbed GI lands a job driving for a sociopathic crook, but then he rather unwisely falls for the crook’s downtrodden wife, and soon we’re tracing an elusive Moebius-strip narrative into nightmare territory. It’s like a David Lynch mystery ahead of its time.
Here (and above) is the opening.
