Cinema Classics Revived for New Audiences

A couple of films hitting movie screens in Chicago aren't exactly new releases. They're older films, but they're starting to find new audiences. The 1948 film The Red Shoes is being re-released after a careful restoration that has resulted in an entirely new look for the old classic. Meanwhile another recently restored film - Jean-Pierre Melville's 1970 Le Cercle Rouge - is winding up the Film Noir series at Northwestern University's Block Cinema. Amy Beste, who programs the Conversations at the Edge series at the Gene Siskel Film Center, has these reviews on the films.
