Directed by John Schlesinger

Starring Laurence Olivier, Dustin Hoffman and Roy Scheider

(1976) “Is it safe?” whispers/hisses Nazi war criminal and dentist Laurence Olivier, doing a little Novocain-free probing on grad student/marathoner Dustin Hoffman — what has big brother Roy Scheider gotten him into? And who’s got those diamonds? Adapted from William Goldman’s bestseller, with Olivier’s walk through the 47th Street Diamond District a highlight. 35mm (12:30, 5:20) DCP (2:50, 7:30). Approx. 125 min.

“As well-crafted escapist entertainment, as a diabolical thriller, the movie works with relentless skill.”
– Roger Ebert

“Instead of logic, the film presents us with a literally breathtaking nightmare that turns out to be, within the film, absolutely true.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
