Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 107: Sat Apr 16

Knife in the Water (Polanski, 1962): Close-Up Cinema, 8pm



This screening, part of the Masters of Polish Cinema season at Close-Up Cinema, is being shown from a 35mm print.
 
Chicago Reader review:
'Written with Jerzy Skolimowski (Moonlighting), this 1962 production was Roman Polanski's first feature film, and there are those who would still call it his best. A middle-aged married couple, intrigued by a young blond hitchhiker, invite him to spend a weekend on their yacht. The sexual tensions build slowly and subtly, and when they explode into violence, it seems to be the desired result.'
