WRITTEN ON THE WIND
Sirk | 1956 | US | 99m
*Double feature with
MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION
“Universal 100”
3:10, 7:20 at Film Forum

“One of the most remarkable and unaccountable films ever made in Hollywood, Douglas Sirk’s 1957 masterpiece turns a lurid, melodramatic script into a screaming Brechtian essay on the shared impotence of American family and business life. Sirk’s highly imaginative use of color—to accent, undermine, and sometimes even nullify the drama—remains years ahead of contemporary technique. The degree of stylization is high and impeccable: one is made to understand the characters as icons as well as psychologically complex creations.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
