Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

In Shock Corridor, the great American writer-director-producer Samuel Fuller (The Naked Kiss, The Big Red One) masterfully charts the uneasy terrain between sanity and dementia. Seeking a Pulitzer Prize, reporter Johnny Barrett (Peter Breck) has himself committed to a mental hospital to investigate a murder. As he closes in on the killer, madness closes in on him. Constance Towers (The Naked Kiss) co-stars as Johnny's coolheaded stripper girlfriend. With its startling commentary on r.ace in sixties America and daring photography by Stanley Cortez (The Night of the Hunter), Shock Corridor is now recognized for its far-reaching influence.

Compelling viewing

I bought this on spec, having never seen it, as I’m drawn to film noir and the Daniel Clowes illustrations and packaging are lovely in themselves. It takes a while to get going, and has that staged / theatrical feel of the period, with a fair bit of over acting (see ‘sane’ actors trying to act crazy), but there’s much here to provoke and leave you questioning your own values and sense of reality! Recommended.
