French crime caper ‘Rififi’ (1955), famed for a 33-minute heist sequence that plays without dialog or music, draws heavily from U.S. influences, and it’s no wonder. Before he was blacklisted in 1950s Hollywood’s anti-communist witch hunt, the film’s American director Jules Dassin had created hard-boiled masterpieces like ‘Brute Force’ and ‘The Naked City’ stateside. Sam Shapiro with UNC Charlotte’s Film Studies department hosts a discussion following the March 19 screening.
