Dir Sydney Pollack. With Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway, Cliff Robertson, Max von Sydow. 117min. 35mm. 15. Unconfirmed One of the finest American conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s, this was released in the wake of the trustshattering Watergate scandal. Redford is Joseph Turner, a CIA operative whose co-workers are murdered in what looks like an inside job. Caught in a cat-and-mouse game with his corrupt superiors, Turner enlists a photographer (Dunaway) to help him, and resolves to blow the whistle. JB THE LOST HONOUR OF KATHARINA BLUM Die verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum West Germany 1975. Dirs Volker Schlöndorff, Margarethe von Trotta. With Angela Winkler, Mario Adorf, Dieter Laser. 106min. Video. EST. 12A The story of a young woman vilified for an alleged association with terrorism, this Heinrich Böll adaptation offers a powerful example of an individual’s defiance as they fall victim to a culture of fear. The film is unflinching in its exploration of media accountability and collective paranoia, the menace of state manipulation ringing as true today as it did 40 years ago. RM Part of HOME’s States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s See p48 for a Future Film post-screening discussion on Tue 12 Dec OUT OF THE PAST (AKA BUILD MY GALLOWS HIGH) USA 1947. Dir Jacques Tourneur. With Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Fleming. 97min. 35mm. PG. From the collection of the Library of Congress Arguably the definitive film noir, this features Robert Mitchum at his best. He plays an ex-private eye trying to escape his past until former girlfriend Kathie (Greer) and gangster Whit (Douglas) drag him into a world of double-crossing, revenge and murder. First-rate performances, hypnotic cinematography and an intricate script make this a classic. HO CAN YOU TRUST HER? Definitely deadlier than the male
