Nightmare Alley features Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as the charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle, who endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a travelling carnival. He crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet. The film also stars Willem Dafoe, Ron Perlman, Mary Steenburgen, and David Strathairn.
After taking a turn down Nightmare Alley, we invite you to come see the director’s top five influential film noirs from 20th Century Studios’ golden age of hard-boiled cinema — all hand-picked by del Toro himself, and screening December 3–19 at TIFF Bell Lightbox on archival 35mm prints or in restored presentations.
