Ministry of Fear

  • Ministry of Fear

All spring, the University of Chicago’s Doc Films has been running films under the banner “Lost Wings: Film Noir Femme Fatales.” The series, which has previously screened Gilda (1946), The Glass Key (1942), and Gun Crazy (1950), culminates on Mon 6/3 with Fritz Lang’s classic The Big Heat. Considering his vast and rich filmography, Lang seemed the ideal subject for this week’s list. See my five favorite Lang films after the jump.
