    THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI
    PRESENTED BY THE NIGHTLIGHT FILM SOCIETY
    NOVEMBER 24TH @8:15PM

    Fascinated by gorgeous Mrs. Bannister, seaman Michael O'Hara joins a bizarre yachting cruise, and ends up mired in a complex murder plot.

    "Orson Welles’ bizarre film noir masterpiece The Lady from Shanghai begins with overt illusions to a fairytale and concludes in a boardwalk fun house. This is not by coincidence. The film draws from a number of narrative conventions and forms including fairytales, fables, nightmares, surrealism, film noir, and myth, and most of the film occurs on or near the water, a motif that directly represents its fluidic, hypnotic, and mirage-like qualities. The stories surrounding the film’s production have become equally legendary. The film also masterfully blends opposites such as realism and surrealism, art and reality, and dreams and consciousness. These components of the film make it one of Welles’ most aesthetically complex visions and one of the best installments in the genre of American film noir." - Chris Justice, Senses of Cinema
