New York City — Showtimes & Events

Thursday May 10th: Editor’s Pick

7:15 at Jacob Burns Film Center [Program & Tix]

THE FRONT
Ritt | 1976 | US | 95m
*Q&A w/ Jonathan Demme & screenwriter Walter Bernstein
7:15 at JBFC

The Front‘s ultimate grasp of the truth of the nature of Hollywood McCarthyism is clear and devastating. Perhaps because the film was written by, directed by, and included actors who were all blacklisted in the ’50s, it takes this contemptible hypocrisy to the mat, and the film teems with a palpable sense of terror and outrage. Ritt manages to add a visual sense of encroachment that enhances scriptor Bernstein’s layers of irony into a cinematic one-two knock-out, while Zero Mostel’s panic and heartbreak give tragic resonance to the film.”
