Overdue: James B. Harris


“Overdue,” a traveling series co­-programmed by film critics Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold, returns to BAMcinématek with yet another genre delight: an eight­film retrospective of the work of producer, screenwriter, and director James B. Harris. While the titles on display that Harris produced for Stanley Kubrick — The Killing(1956), Paths of Glory (1957), and Lolita (1962) — are certainly formidable, the real pleasure of the series is discovering lesser-­known works that Harris himself directed, including two crime collaborations with unhinged actor James Woods:Fast-­Walking (1982) and Cop (1988).
