Look Who’s Back: The Hollywood Renaissance & the Blacklist" film season invites you to re-think the youth-orientated image of the Hollywood renaissance, suggesting that we should not overlook the vital contribution of a group of middle-aged, liberal-minded, formerly blacklisted creatives.
Season Curator Andy Willis (Professor of Film Studies at the University of Salford and Senior Visiting Curator at HOME in Manchester) has provided exclusive video introductions for this and all screenings in the season at Riverside, giving you vita insights into the thinking behind the season and a rationale for the choice of films included, as well as those left out.
“An enduringly entertaining thriller’ - The Guardian
Discover the stunning 4K restoration of a New Hollywood classic from director Sidney Lumet – the true story of a cop who blew the whistle on rampant corruption in the police force. In New York in 1971 an honest policeman, Serpico (Al Pacino in a ferocious and career-changing performance), investigates corruption among his fellow workers. In the course of his inquiries, he becomes increasingly isolated but more convinced of their guilt until he finally decides to reveal all to the New York Times.
