FilmSoc Week 7: THE KILLING
19 April, 2016
RC Mills Lecture Theatre 209
Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1955, USA
THE KILLING may be one of the lesser-seen films in Stanley Kubrick's illustrious oeuvre, but it is also easily one of the most entertaining. It's a heist film, following a group of ex-cons who develop a meticulous plan to rob a racetrack. But as the scheme is set into motion, it starts to look like their best-laid plans might not be as watertight as they thought. With whip-smart, rapidfire dialogue, a twisty, time-hopping plot and slick film noir touches, THE KILLING is a stylish and thrilling bit of genre fun.
Find us on Tuesday in RC Mills Lecture Room 209. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
This event is free for members, $5 for Access cardholders. Annual membership is $5 for Access cardholders.
