Clouzot's Inferno

Clouzot's Inferno 

When: Sun., March 11, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $12

Henri-Georges Clouzot directed two absolute classics of the 1950s: The Wages of Fear and Diabolique, which still stand up as masterpieces of suspense and far outshine their remakes (though Sorcerer, the 1977 U.S. remake of Wages, is quite the underrated number). However, his most ambitious film, Inferno, was never finished, partly because he had a heart attack 18 days into shooting. Decades later, 85 cans of film from the production were found; they were stitched together for this 2009 documentary that includes clips as well as interviews with the surviving cast and crew. Though we might never know what the finished Inferno would have looked like, here's a glimpse into what could have been. The 7 p.m. screening is part of The Cinema, Inc. series; a subscription to this season's remaining films is $12. —Zack Smith
