Ace in the Hole

This 1951 film noir is more or less a lost gem, which is strange considering director Billy Wilder shot it as his follow up to the monumentally successful Sunset Boulevard. Kirk Douglas stars as a cynical journalist stuck in podunk Albuquerque. One day, he stumbles across the story of a thrill-seeker stuck in an abandoned mine shaft. He exploits this "human interest" tale to its hilt, turning the entire thing into an out-of-control media circus. This film was at least four decades ahead of its time and seems more prescient in today's media-manipulated world than ever before. It was shot entirely in New Mexico and retains and amazing sun-baked atmosphere of dread and cynicism. 111 minutes (Thursday 11/17)
