The Landlord

Part of See It Big! Gordon Willis
Saturday, February 21, 2015, 2:00 p.m.

Dir. Hal Ashby. 1970, 112 mins. 35mm. With Beau Bridges, Lee Grant, Diana Sands, Pearl Bailey. Hal Ashby’s first feature is among the funniest social comedies of the period. Throughout, Willis’s subtly experimental cinematography sharpens the culture-clash satire by creating two distinct looks: high-key lighting for the realm of WASP-y privilege, and subdued shadows for the urban settings.
