New 35mm re-release.


“For his first feature, Jean-Jacques Beineix borrowed the formal innovations of the French avant-garde—Godard’s colors and conflicting tones, Rivette’s screwball thriller plotting—for a work of unalloyed entertainment, which was such a sharp commercial idea it’s a wonder no one had thought of it before. A young postal messenger who worships an American opera singer makes an illegal tape of one of her recitals; meanwhile, a dying prostitute drops a cassette of her tape-recorded confessions, which will help indict a drug ring, into his mail pouch.” — Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader


“A visual extravaganza. One of the most persistently entertaining, absorbing and scary thrillers I’ve seen in a long time…” — Roger Ebert
