Get Lost

These kids today with their C.G.I. and their digital what's-its and "color" film! Back in the thirties, filmmakers knew how to build suspense with budgets smaller than the average annual salary of a Los Angeles public school teacher. The Friday Film Forum is hosting this double feature of ‘30s era thrillers. In The Lost Patrol , John Ford directs a tale of British soldiers under attack by a wiley enemy in the Middle Eastern desert while Island of Lost Souls adapts H.G. Wells' Dr. Moreau story far more successfully than the 1996 Marlon Brando version, and features Bela Lugosi as a creepy goat-man. The Friday Film Forum will present a preshow program of shorts, cartoons and surprises.
Fri., Aug. 1, 7 p.m., 2008
