Mark you calendars, because we just got exciting news from Museyon Guide Tom Beer, your guide to Film + Travel in the UK. If you love British film as much as we do, head to New York’s Film Forum for “Brit Noir” series, four weeks of intrigue, crime and drama from August 7 through September 3. The program features more than 40 films made in Great Britain from the 1930s (starting with 1938’s ‘They Drive By Night,’ “the first bone-fide British noir”) through the ’60s. Be sure to catch 1947’s ‘Brighton Rock,’ and then pick up Film + Travel to find where to try the film’s tasty murder weapon for yourself. Beer’s other picks? The “extraordinary” ‘Odd Man Out,’ directed by Carol Reed and starring James Mason; and Michael Powell’s ‘Peeping Tom.’
Stay tuned, because starting this week we’re going to introduce you to our absolutely amazing Museyon Guides. Starting with, you guessed it, Mr. Tom Beer, your guide to the UK.
