Masters of Cinema’s new release, Violent Saturday, takes us back to a time when the gangsters were sharp, the dames were dubious and low lifes were everywhere.

Released in 1955, Richard Fleischer’s crime drama certainly doesn’t skimp on the pulp and violence (as you might expect from its title), but it leans more towards small town melodrama with some unpleasant undercurrents, than full blown film noir.

This genre merging is helped by the film’s look as much as its plot. Violent Saturday is shot both in colour and CinemaScope (an anamorphic wide lens) and presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.55:1 for home release. Add »
