The PCC is screening the noir classic Kiss Me Deadly. Based on a Mickey Spillane pulp fiction. This classic was a source of inspiration for Quentin Tarantino. The scenes in Pulp Fiction of the glow of the contents of the never seen briefcase a direct homage to Kiss Me Deadly.

Kiss Me Deadly promises ‘red-blood kisses’ and ‘white-hot thrills’, a noir classic that has lost none of its power to shock and surprise. Private investigator Mike Hammer, a thuggish, macho anti-hero, is drawn into a bottomless pit of conspiracy and corruption after picking up a mysterious and beautiful hitch-hiker. Exposing the black soul of America in the atomic age, this is as hard-boiled as it gets.

Classic screening of Mickey Spillane's Kiss Me Deadly directted by Robert Aldrich.
