Cat People (Opening Night)

Thursday 26 October @ 6pm | Arc Cinema| $16/13

1943 | CTC | 74 mins| USA | D: Jacques Tourneur

Perhaps Tourneur’s best known film, CAT PEOPLE is a superb example of his art. Made for a tiny budget that would have crippled other directors, Tourneur delivered a psychological thriller that created suspense through sound and shadow, through a brooding sense of paranoia, rather than special effects: the art of showing less and suggesting more. The eerie story of a young woman obsessed with ancient legends and panthers, the film was one of a series that Tourneur made for producer Val Lewton. In all of them, but especially CAT PEOPLE, Tourneur makes a virtue of his sparse resources to build work that critic James Agee described as “consistently alive, limber, poetic, humane, (and) eager towards the possibilities of the screen.”
