Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know Film noir is obsessed with the femme fatale, the woman of dangerous charm who makes a man forget himself. But, in this series we focus on unreliable men: suave murderers, untrustworthy policemen, unscrupulous reporters, principled weaklings, and deceptive males of all stripes, men who are Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know. Join us in the shadows, in the only all–35 mm venue in the Triangle.
Films are introduced by Laura Boyes, NCMA film curator.
