If you remember the sixties, then you weren’t there, as the saying goes. Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blowupcaptures the wild and hallucinatory quality of the decade pretty darn well. It features very interesting directing and a captivating premise, but the endgame really confuses me. I think that’s point, but whether it is or not is difficult to say. One thing’s for sure; this film practically…

Originally produced for PBS, the American Cinema series examined American film. This one-hour episode examines film noir. From lighting techniques to directors and actors, and the genre’s roots in German expressionism, the program is an excellent survey of the genre. All the great noirs are featured. Particularly fascinating are contemporary interviews with noir luminaries Edward Dmytryk, Joseph H. Lewis, A.I. Bezzerides, and Marie Windsor. Richard Widmark supplies a nuanced voice-over for some scenes. Martin Scorsese is really the main interest as he talks about Force of Evil in great detail and talks about what an important film it was in his life and career. He also talks about Mean Streets and what aspects of the noir he was trying to work into it. —filmsnoir.net
