The Ipcress File 

When: Fri., April 27, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $5 ($3.50 for members)

Before Jason Bourne—heck, before Dirty Harry—there was Harry Palmer. Michael Caine gave British moviegoers an alternative to James Bond in Sidney J. Furie's 1965 espionage thriller based on Len Deighton's novel. Caine unravels a sinister plot to brainwash British scientists in which his own insubordinate nature is his best weapon. But the plots of these films are less than half the reason we see them. Shot and cut in a brash, claustrophobic style, this thriller rejects James Bond kitsch for French Connection grit with a dash of 1940s hardboiled noir, while allowing Caine to flash enough suave to make the ladies squirm in their seats a little. The film screens at 8 p.m. in the museum's East Building auditorium; admission is $5, or $3.50 for students and members of the NCMA, Cinema Inc. or Galaxy Cinema. —Chris Vitiello
