WHIRLPOOL (1949) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Gene Tierney, Richard Conte, Jose Ferrer, Charles Bickford, Barbara O'Neil, Eduard Franz, Fortunio Bonanova
Directed By:  Otto Preminger
Composed By:  David Raksin

“The same themes and the same cool style as in Laura and Angel Face are at work in this portrait of the wealthy and sophisticated cracking apart at the seams. A fine example of the way Preminger, on occasion, managed to deflect routine melodrama into something more personal and profound.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out Film Guide

“Offers a startlingly prescient depiction of the rise of pop psychology in everyday American life. Preminger’s powerful and masterfully controlled mise en scène reaches a zenith here.”
– Adrian Martin, Film Noir: The Encyclopedia

Mind games, both for its characters and the audience, fuel the mesmerizing suspense of Whirlpool (1949), a polished noir thriller reuniting director Otto Preminger with his Laura star Gene Tierney, giving one of her best performances as a mentally troubled socialite caught shoplifting – and ensnared in the dark scheme of a manipulative astrologer/hypnotist (José Ferrer) to frame her for murder. Richard Conte and Charles Bickford co-star as Tierney’s psychiatrist husband and the investigating police detective. Written for the screen by Ben Hecht (Spellbound, Where the Sidewalk Ends) and Andrew Solt (In a Lonely Place), and hauntingly scored by another Laura veteran, the great David Raksin.
