In The Cut

Dir. Jane Campion
With Meg Ryan, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Jason Leigh
2003, 119min

 

Meg Ryan received one of her richest and most complex roles to date in Jane Campion’s fascinating adaptation of a novel by Susanna Moore about a New York City writing professor who begins a dangerous liaison with a detective investigating the brutal murder of a young woman. Turning genre conventions on their head, Campion offers a mesmerizing, subversive deconstruction of the erotic thriller from a distinctly feminist perspective that was critically maligned on its release and remains ripe for reevaluation.

 
Klute

Dir. Alan J. Pakula
With Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Charles Cioffi
1971, 114min

 

Jane Fonda is iconic in an Oscar-winning performance as a Manhattan call girl who finds herself at the dangerous center of the hunt for a killer. Riffing on classic noir tropes, the first in Alan J. Pakula’s celebrated cycle of Nixon-era paranoia thrillers doubles as a gritty-glam time capsule of the fashion, design, and sexual politics of 1970s New York.
