Description

The Cobweb is big-budget Hollywood psycho-drama, starring Lauren Bacall, Gloria Grahame, and Richard Widmark. Set in a private mental institution where the neuroses of the staff are often as violent as the traumas of their patients, the main storyline revolves around what kind of drapes are hung in the library. Everyone has an opinion, and as the drapes debate rages on, the characters slowly unravel. An exquisite example of a director using d├ęcor to express complex emotions. (1955, 124 min, 35mm)
