Multi-hyphenate James B. Harris has been a film industry force for nearly six decades, turning out a small but hugely impressive body of work as a producer, director, and screenwriter. Perhaps best known for the string of classics he produced for Stanley Kubrick, including Lolita and The Killing, Harris’ own films display a particular knack for intelligent, tough-as-nails crime thrillers.

This retrospective is presented in partnership with Overdue, critics Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold’s ongoing series of unsung cinematic gems.
