Band of Outsiders: Women Crime Writers

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Adaptations of tales by Patricia Highsmith, Vera Caspary, Dorothy B. Hughes, and others reveal the dark side of "women's writing." Visit the website for details.


This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Band of Outsiders: Women Crime Writers :

Women and crime make for a dynamic combination and BAMPFA’s program of films, based on stories by a bevy of hard-boiled female crime writers, certainly bears that out. Patricia Highsmith is at the top of the list. Her novels were the source for Hitchcock’s “Strangers on a Train” and “Purple Noon,” which was inspired by “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” whose amoral chameleon protagonist, embodied by an animalistic Alain Delon, uses sex as his currency.
