由客座策展人 Mia Mask 介绍
Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz. 1950, 106 mins. 35mm. With Richard Widmark, Sidney Poitier, Linda Darnell. Poitier made his striking film debut in one of the first—and most powerful—Hollywood films to confront race relations in America. He stars as an idealistic doctor who’s terrorized by Richard Widmark’s racist psychopath when a white criminal dies at his hospital—a tense situation that nearly sets off a town race riot. Intelligently directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (the same year he made 关于夏娃的一切), 没有出路 is both a gripping noir and a potent rebuff of racism. Future stars and activists Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee appear in small roles.
