Let It Rain That Cold SF Rain...
San Francisco Noir Film Fest

While everyone else does whatever they can to avoid the bone-chilling cold San Francisco rain this weekend, those in the know are going to be turning up their trenchcoat and venturing out after dark for a deadly dose of hard boiled heroes, nihilistic thugs, ordinary people over the line, dirty deals gone wrong, and the kind of femme fatales that you just know aren't any good for you... but can't help but get mixed up with anyway.

That's right, it's time for you to once again attend Noir City, San Francisco's world-famous festival celebrating the greatest noir cinema ever made. Featuring an amazing selection black and white flicks never released on DVD classics of yesteryear, including Dangerous Crossing, the delightfully named Hangover Square, a San Francisco classic thriller D.O.A., the brain-teasing murder yarn you won't forget The 3rd Voice (with the tag-line "Spurned, she became mistress of the double-double-cross!" how can you go wrong?), one of my personal favorite lost films The Story of Molly X, and a man-do-I-want-to-see-this film that's been hailed as a "noir version of It’s a Wonderful Life" Repeat Performance with a post screening onstage interview with pulse-quickening star Joan Leslie herself!

Ten days. 20 films. No happy endings.

Now doesn't that sound like the perfect complement to those chilly and rainy San Francisco nights?
