When: Monday, 30th April, 19:30 onwards
Where: The Spotted Dog, 104 Warwick Street, Digbeth, B12 0NH
Monday evenings are boring aren’t they? Not in Digbeth!
The Spotted Dog will be hosting their fortnightly Filum Night this coming Monday, showing Carol Reed’s Odd Man Out:
“Odd Man Out” is far more than just a very good “cops and robbers” movie, although it can hold its own with most. Beneath that is a deep psychological drama as Johnny McQueen, an IRA rebel, wounded in a holdup, is pursued by police, his own gang, and several unsavory characters. McQueen becomes less of a man and more symbol to his hunters. He is viewed as a martyr, meal ticket, and art project. Robert Newton is excellent in his role as a half-mad artist who wants to hold Johnny just long enough to paint the expression in the eyes of a dying man. Intensely suspenseful, set in the working-class neighborhoods and slums, the gray atmosphere compliments the plot perfectly. One of James Mason’s finest.
As per usual, free tea and cakes will be served.
