Jess Franco Noir

Jess Franco Noir

Following his international breakthrough with THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, director Jesús Franco next delivered a startling pair of crime thrillers that pistol-whipped European notions of film noir while lighting the fuse on the filmmaker's own insane aesthetic. Both films – which led an impressed Orson Welles to hire Franco as his assistant on CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT – are presented in an HD scan from the original negative.

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.

Jean Servais of RIFIFI fame stars in RIFIFI IN THE CITY, a nihilistic trip through a pulp underworld of thugs, snitches, nightclub dames and black-gloved giallo-style murders.
