Pabst) Sex in the City – Berlin, 1928: in the wake of Louise Brooks’ patent leather-bobbed Lulu, men set up expensive love nests, ruin themselves gambling, commit brutal murders, and kill themselves; as she moves from kept woman, headlining showgirl, lesbian love interest, widow in mourning, fugitive from the law, and possible sex slave, amid a bustling backdrop of Weimar Germany. 35mm. Approx. 133 mins.
“The archetype of voracious destructive women.”
