ADDITIONAL INFO: In conjunction with St. Joseph’s College Professor Peter Mascuch’s course, The Language of Film, The Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center will be screening Stanley Kubrick’s 1956 noir classic, THE KILLING. These screenings are open to the general audience, who, alongside SJC students, will share the rare experience of viewing these classics on the big screen, followed by a seminar and Q&A from Mascuch.
ABOUT THE FILM: Stanley Kubrick’s account of an ambitious racetrack robbery is one of Hollywood’s tautest, twistiest noirs. Aided by a radically time-shuffling narrative, razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson, and a phenomenal cast of character actors, including Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Timothy Carey, Elisha Cook Jr., and Marie Windsor, The Killing is both a jaunty thriller and a cold-blooded punch to the gut. And with its precise tracking shots and gratifying sense of irony, it’s Kubrick to the core. -From The Critetrion Collection.
Running time: 84 minutes.
