This series came to the Castro Theatre in September, and though I was only able to catch one double-bill, it was of the two films I'd never seen before: Brighton Rock and It Always Rains on Sunday. I particularly loved the latter, which somehow combines a sense of fatalistic doom with a lively portrait of a (mostly) genial London neighborhood.


Great, I'm looking forward to the British Noir series more than ever. Thanks for the teaser, Bri. I've seen Peeping Tom and The Third Man so if I skip any it will be those two. I'm really looking forward to the other Reed picture as it was recommended back when I wrote about Odd Man Out. Do you think the application of the term "noir" is appropriate for these pictures?
