‘Where the Sidewalk Ends’ reveals shades of noir’s bittersweet side

5 September 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Written by Ben Hecht

Directed by Otto Preminger

USA, 1950

To those paying attention, film history teaches that groups of like-minded artists enjoy working together. The better the result of their initial project, the higher the likelihood the same team shall reconvene to produce one, two, or more films, hopefully of equal or superior quality. Some time ago in this column, Otto Preminger’s 1944 Laura was reviewed, a brilliant picture about a detective falling in love with a believed-to-be-deceased woman based on her stunning portrait, starring Dana Andrews and Gene Tierney as the lovers in question. Six years following said sumptuous collaboration, the same director-actors partnership brought audiences Where the Sidewalk Ends, an equally bittersweet tale of misguided love.

The set-up to Preminger’s 1950 film makes it come across as something of a spiritual precursor to Nicholas Ray’s On Dangerous Ground, which would come out two years later. »

Short Film: ‘Icarus 1′ Provides a Much-Needed, Childlike Escape

20 June 2013 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? It’s impossible not to cheer for the young boy in Icarus 1 as he builds something to help him escape a troubled home life. The film from writer/director/Dp Anthony Ladesich envisions a world where childhood hopes can be glued together on cardboard along with loose wires and a bit of imagination to create something that defies reality. Shot beautifully to put us in smaller shoes, we get a ground level view of the humble pieces that the kid cobbles together even as the floating voices of his fighting parents threaten to invade his safe space. When it’s time to go (he’s smart enough to pack some clothes and a copy of “Where the Sidewalk Ends”), there’s a palpable rush of hope filling us with a desperate desire to see the machines of his engineered imagination work in a weary world burdened by gravity.
