55th Anniversary Screening!

What if the Adam West Batman had been made with a budget and had an Ennio Morricone score? The answer is Danger: Diabolik — the action heist that has you rooting for the anti-hero. Directed and co-written by Mario Bava based on the comics series by Angela and Luciana Giussani, a massive hit in their native Italy that became cult classic in North America. The movie is a feast of outlandish surreal-meets-Pop Art costume and set design. (The master thief’s lair boasts a hangar full of Jaguar E-Types. Because of course it does!) As one critic put it, it’s ‘a fever-dream experience that intoxicates the viewer with its rarefied, almost alien, European opulence.’

To see Danger: Diabolik is to be doomed to forever wander the earth wondering what Mario Bava would’ve done with a Bond movie. (Nathalie Atkinson)
