So Dark the Night

USA 1948. Dir: Joseph H. Lewis. 71 min. DCP

B-movie auteur Joseph H. Lewis (Gun Crazy, The Big Combo) is a cult favourite for his brisk, stylish films noir. In So Dark the Night. a Parisian detective takes a much-needed vacation in the French countryside, only to become tangled up in a messy romantic triangle — and murder. Made on a miniscule budget with a no-name cast, Lewis’s little-seen gem is “directed like a million bucks ... It has more cinematic ideas per square foot of screen than any number of contemporary A features ... This is what Lewis was all about” (Tony Rayns, Time Out).

"A tight combination of direction, camerawork and musical scoring produce a series of isolated visual effects that are subtle and moving to an unusual degree."

"The film is directed like a million bucks. Visually, it compares with The Big Combo as one of Lewis' purest noir achievements"
