Robert Siodmak / US, 1948 / 88 min.
Deceit spreads like wildfire in Criss Cross. Under the pitiless gaze of director Robert Siodmak, the characters all fall into traps they have set for others. Also features Tony Curtis’ first bit part.
Rain-drenched streets, curls of cigarette smoke, and men with a dark past. An inescapable fate and a femme fatale, sly and sexually independent. This summer Eye is presenting an extended programme of classic film noir, featuring masterpieces such as The Third Man and In a Lonely Place starring Humphrey Bogart. With vintage 35mm prints and newly restored works.
