Family Plot

Friday, June 22 - Sunday, June 24, 2012

35mm print “Alfred Hitchcock’s 53rd and final film was greeted with affectionate condescension by most American critics, but there’s no reason to apologize for this small masterpiece, one of Hitchcock’s most adventurous and expressive experiments in narrative form. After the blind alley of the heroless Topaz, Hitchcock here returned to the dual plotting of Psycho, thinking it through again as a comedy in which the two compared/contrasted couples (Bruce Dern and Barbara Harris versus Karen Black and William Devane) do not meet until the final minutes. With Ed Lauter and Cathleen Nesbitt.” – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
