Plays March 11th and March 14th
Directed By Douglas Sirk
USA, 1956; 100 mins, in English






One of the most remarkable and unaccountable films ever made in Hollywood, Douglas Sirk’s 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. –Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
