Review: THE THIRD MAN, Menier Chocolate Factory
by Cindy Marcolina - Jun 20, 2023


When Holly Martins arrives in Vienna to start a new job after the Second World War, he learns that his childhood friend Harry Lime died a few days prior. A broke novelist who was promised a cut in his business, he finds Harry’s sudden death suspicious and starts to investigate. Considered one of the best British films, it was only a matter of time before Carol Reed and Graham Greene’s 1949 film The Third Man received the musical treatment. With words by Don Black and Christopher Hampton and music by George Fenton, this premiere is a mid-weight noir directed by Trevor Nunn. While the cast is often impressive, the background against which the plot unravels is far more interesting than the story itself.

Opening Next Week in Major Cities Across US John Carpenter's THE FOG (4K Restoration)
by Tori Hartshorn - Oct 18, 2018


John Carpenter's first post-Halloween venture into the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired, apocalyptic vein that he would continue to mine in films like The Thing (1982) and Prince of Darkness  (1987), THE FOG depicts the seaside California town of Antonio Bay in the grips of an ancient curse and a creeping mist. Drenched in malevolent atmosphere and packing an ensemble cast that includes Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Hal Holbrook and the mother-daughter duo of Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis, this is the director at his ingenious, chilling best, servicing a contemporary taste for gore while simultaneously evoking the spirit of Val Lewton.
