ARMY OF SHADOWS
1969. France. Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville. 145 min.
Melville’s ode to the dogged survival of the WWII French resistance strips away the glamour and sensationalism of movies like INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and burns with a quiet, noble intensity. Its cool, understated approach influenced countless modern filmmakers, despite its lack of a U.S. release until an acclaimed 2006 restoration.
DATE: Tonight, February 24th
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
