High and Low

High and Low

Had the pleasure of watching this film for the first time on 35mm thanks to The Cinematheque in Vancouver. It was the first film in the series High Art Films Made from Pop Art Sources curated by Donald Brackett. Brackett intro'd the film.

Great film by a great master. Incredibly tight Tohoscope framing which should be studied for how to frame groups of characters in a 2.35 frame.

trivia: Pulp Fiction's "Swing Dance Scene" was inspired by the incredible real time dance scene in the last act of High and Low.

Watched on 35mm at Vancouver's Cinematheque
