Brian De Palma's FEMME FATALE in 35MM

Special 35mm presentation! Antonio Banderas stars in this under-rated Brian De Palma thriller.

"Pure filmmaking, elegant and slippery. I haven't had as much fun second-guessing a movie since Mulholland Drive" - Roger Ebert

An ode to classic film noir, FEMME FATALE opens with one of De Palma's greatest set pieces: a stealthy jewel heist by a gang led by seductive thief Laure (Rebecca Romijn) that takes place during a gala screening at the Cannes Film Festival. After double-crossing her partners, Laure flees to the Paris suburbs, where a whirlwind of unlikely events results in her assuming the identity of her doppelgänger, marrying a wealthy American diplomat (Peter Coyote), and assuming a new life in the US. Returning to Paris seven years later when her husband is made the American ambassador to France, Laure is targeted by her former accomplices, and she ropes in a bewildered Spanish photographer (a convincingly confused Antonio Banderas) for a deadly game of double-, triple- and quadruple-crosses.


"De Palma has provided enough ripe flesh, split-screen mayhem, and dreamlike imagery to power six films noir." - Slate

"De Palma -- a master of kinky, delirious visuals -- hooks you good." - Rolling Stone

"One of the smartest, most pleasurable expressions of pure movie love to come from an American director in years" - Manohla Dargis
