Joseph Conrad's elaborately structured fiction poses monstrous problems for film adaptation, and the solution proposed here by Richard Brooks—plodding literal-mindedness—doesn't come close to working. Still, this 1964 release is a handsome film (photographed by Freddie Young) with an appealing population, including Peter O'Toole, James Mason, Paul Lukas, Jack Hawkins, Akim Tamiroff, and Daliah Lavi.
70mm. Tickets are $12. Sun 7/9, noon, and Mon 7/10, 2:30 PM.
