Louis Malle’s first feature Elevator to the Gallows helped usher in the beginnings of the French New Wave. With the help of her lover, Jeanne Moreau (in a star-making performance) plots the perfect murder of her husband in an inspired film-noir fusion of Robert Bresson and Alfred Hitchcock. Featuring an unforgettable improvised score by Miles Davis. (89 mins., 35mm). This film is programmed in conjunction with the Blues for Smoke exhibition, on view through December 29.
