Carol Reed Centennial

MUBI Special

Sir Carol Reed is invariably referred to as one of the best British filmmakers of all time. He was born a hundred years ago this December, and we celebrate with a double bill of absolute gems from the end of his career.

Our Man in Havana

Carol Reed United Kingdom, 1959

Our second Carol Reed film celebrating the director’s centennial (born 100 years ago today!), is a sublimely droll Cold War spy film. An unbeatable assembly—Graham Greene writing, Alec Guinness, Maureen O’Hara, Noël Coward, Ralph Richardson, & Burl Ives starring—is led by Reed with style and aplomb.

Oliver!

Carol Reed United Kingdom, 1968

The great director Carol Reed was born a hundred years ago this December, and we celebrate with a double bill of absolute gems from the end of his career. We begin with his Oscar-winning production of Oliver!, a resounding pleasure and one of the best (and last) great musicals of the classical era.
