Film noir, what critic Roger Ebert once called“the most American film genre,” is known for low-key lighting as dark as a killer’s heart, camera angles more skewed than a gumshoe’s moral compass, and weaving plots as convoluted as was to circumvent the production code.

Join us for a film series of dimly lit alleys, ambivalent motivations, and hapless, hard-drinking men and women who would just as soon kill you as love you.

The Film

Body Heat (1981)

Shyster lawyer Ned Racine (William Hurt) begins a passionate affair with Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner), wife of a wealthy Florida businessman (Richard Crenna). With the help of one of his criminal clients, bomb maker Teddy Lewis (Mickey Rourke), Ned hatches a scheme to kill Matty's husband so that they can run away together with his money. But complications build upon double-crosses, launching the hapless lawyer into a situation far more treacherous than he imagined.
