Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 92: Mon Apr 2

The Fire Within (Malle, 1963): Close-Up Cinema, 6pm

Chicago Reader review:
Louis Malle achieved a rare level of mastery in this 1963 portrait of the last 24 hours in the life of a man emerging from an alcoholism cure. It's a penetrating study of a man at the end of his rope, and a searing re-creation of a social milieu. With Maurice Ronet.
Don Druker

Here (and above) is the opening scene.
