The Big Sleep (6:00pm) and Film Noir reading group (5:00pm), Zrinyi 14, room 412, Friday, May 28th

On Friday 28th we will be discussing a short piece by Elisabeth Bronfen , “Femme Fatale: Negotiations of Tragic Desire”, and watching “The Big Sleep”. The reading group starts at 5:00 pm, and the screening at 6:00. See you all there!

The Big Sleep (1946)

Directed by: Howard Hawks

Starring: Humprey Bogart, Lauren Bacall

“Bogart himself made personal style into an art form. What else did he have? He wasn’t particularly handsome, he wore a rug, he wasn’t tall (“I try to be,” he tells Vickers), and he always seemed to act within a certain range. Yet no other movie actor is more likely to be remembered a century from now. And the fascinating subtext in “The Big Sleep” is that in Bacall he found his match.””
