Death Whistles the Blues
Critic's Choice Spotlight: Dave Taylor • Crime, Drama
Following his international breakthrough with THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, director Jesús Franco delivered a startling crime thriller that pistol-whipped European notions of film noir while lighting the fuse on Jess' own insane aesthetic. Set in New Orleans and based on a novel by the authors of VERTIGO, DEATH WHISTLES THE BLUES is a hard-boiled tale of betrayal, violence, and revenge featuring smoky jazz compositions by Franco himself. The film, which led an impressed Orson Welles to hire Franco as his assistant on CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT, is presented digitally remastered in high definition from the original negative.
“An absolutely classic film noir... DEATH WHISTLES THE BLUES will make you immensely happy.” –Italo Cinema
DIRECTED BY JESÚS FRANCO
