(1958, Andrzej Wajda) As partygoers revel through the long night between war and peace, an anti-Communist diehard finds love en route to his final mission. Wajda’s flood of arresting images and Zbigniew Cybulski’s electrifying, self-created performance (reminiscent of Brando and Dean) made both internationally famous overnight. 35mm. Approx. 103 min.

“[Wajda’s] camera takes in a shattering sweep of the litter of a lost and ruined country at the symbolic dawn of a new day… His sharply etched black-and-white action has the pictorial snap and quality of some of the old Soviet pictures of Pudovkin and Eisenstein.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

*Q&A with star Carroll Baker

(1963, Seth Holt) Into a sweaty oil-pumping station in the Sahara, manned by tough boss German Peter van Eyck, ex-WWII major Denholm Elliott, professional needler Ian Bannen, take-no-guff German Hansjorg Felmy, and tuned-out Spaniard Mario Adorf, crashes an American car, with Carroll Baker and murderous but now dead husband. Turbulence ensues. 35mm. Approx. 99 min.

“The underrated Holt directs with a tight grip… It's an unexpected black sheep of British cinema, not least for its unrepressed sense of anger and strident eroticism.”
– David Thompson, Time Out (London)
