LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN
Stahl | 1945 | US | 105m
“Fashion in Film Festival:
If Looks Could Kill”
7:00 at MoMI

“A noir without shadows? A women’s picture that posits its female protagonist as a ravenous, sociopathic schemer? A high body-count thriller in which not one drop of blood is spilled? Leave Her to Heaven doesn’t ultimately defy categorization so much as confound easy readings of classical Hollywood approach. When the nefarious deeds kick into high gear, you can only suck in your breath in astonishment. Sheer vulgarity that creeps into Leave Her to Heaven from the corners of nearly every frame… some of American film’s most truly disquieting moments.”
Michael Koresky, Reverse Shot [Read More]
