A man with no name arrives in a small town in Michigan, heads to the harbor and buys a dilapidated boat. With minimal dialogue but significant emotional content, Eyre’s film limns the mourning process, showing how the protagonist’s hands-on labors give him the time and space to reflect on his sorrows and perhaps the ability to rejoin society.

New 35 mm print! In a squalid South American oil town, four desperate men sign on for a suicide mission to drive trucks loaded with nitroglycerin over a treacherous mountain route. As they ferry their explosive cargo to a faraway oil fire, each bump and jolt tests their courage, their friendship and their nerves. The result is one of the greatest thrillers ever committed to celluloid, a white-knuckle ride from France’s legendary master of suspense and the winner of the 1953 Cannes Palme d’Or. More info >>

Part two: “Expressionism, Impressionism and Surrealism: Golden Age of World Cinema” (1920s); “The Arrival of Sound” (1930s). More info >>
