Cinema Reborn: In a Lonely Place

Iconic film noir about a Hollywood scriptwriter stalked by accusations of murder. Directed by Nicholas Ray (They Live by Night; Rebel Without a Cause) and graced with compelling performances from Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame.

“As ever, Ray composes with symbolic precision, confounds audience expectations, and deploys the heightened lyricism of melodrama to produce an achingly poetic meditation on pain, distrust and loss of faith, not to mention an admirably unglamorous portrait of Tinseltown. Never were despair and solitude so romantically alluring.” (Geoff Andrew)

“…one of the darkest, harshest, and most devastating love stories ever made.”(New Yorker)

“Ray’s characters are inflicted with all the psychic ills of the fifties.”(Andrew Sarris)
