• City Girl

Tomorrow night City Girl, whose documentary images of LaSalle Street circa 1929 should hold special interest for local viewers. But the film is worth seeing simply for having been directed by F.W. Murnau, one of the most imaginative filmmakers who ever lived. In an ideal world, this past spring would have seen a Chicago revival of his Tabu to coincide with the local premiere of the Miguel Gomes film of the same name. (Alas, the film is currently tied up in rights issues, which makes a revival almost impossible.) In lieu of that, any Murnau title other than Nosferatu or Sunrise—which get screened fairly regularly—is most welcome indeed.
