The Black Dahlia

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Brian De Palma, Brian De Palma, Brian De Palma
2006 / 120min / 35mm

“The structuring absence in De Palma’s lurid neo-noir is the corpse of Elizabeth Short, alias the Black Dahlia, an actual actress-hopeful whose grisly 1947 murder still remains unsolved. On a tip that the dead woman liked the ladies, an LAPD detective pays a visit to a soigné sapphic cabaret, where a tuxedoed k.d. lang croons ‘Love for Sale.’”—Melissa Anderson, curator
