James B. Harris

We are honored to announce the attendance of James B. Harris: producer, screenwriter, and director of a rich and singular universe.

James B. Harris

As a filmmaker, James B. Harris is above all faithful in his collaborations. He produced three of Stanley Kubrik’s films: The Killing (1956), Paths of Glory (1957) and Lolita (1962). His filmography is composed exclusively of "films noirs,” certain of which he directed himself. You will notice that his characters are never white, nor black, but infinitely gray. He directed James Woods several times and adapted two novels by James Ellroy, including The Black Dahlia in 2006, directed by Brian de Palma.


Some Call it Loving  (Sleeping Beauty)  by James B. Harris (1973, 1:42)
At a fairground, a lonely man buys a woman who has been in a deep sleep for eight years. When he wakes her up, a surprise awaits. A strange and wonderful fantasy, a cinematographic adventure.
With the presence of James B. Harris: Institut Lumière Wed. 2:30pm
Other screening: Pathé Bellecour Sat. 10pm 

Cop  by James B. Harris (1988, 1:50)
A policeman tracks a serial killer believed by no one to exist. An adaptation of a novel by James Ellroy woven with stark emotion. Starring James Wood, this is a study in attraction/repulsion.

Other screening: Institut Lumière theater 2 Fri. 8:30pm

Lolita  by Stanley Kubrick (1962, 2:33)
A man marries a widow and falls for her daughter. Peter Sellers gives an explosive performance while James Mason’s perfectly refined ambiguity is played off against the sensual electricity of the young Sue Lyon. A brilliant adaptation of Nabokov’s novel, and the last of three films produced by the man who would launch Kubrick’s career, James B. Harris.
