The Wages of Fear is the film that director Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk) hails to be ‘a masterpiece of suspense’. There is a squalid South American oil town where life is cheap. Four desperate men, each seeking their way out, agree to go on a suicide mission to transport trucks carrying nitroglycerin through a treacherous mountain terrain. Henri-Georges Clouzot’s The Wages of Fear is an exciting, white-knuckle ride widely hailed to be one of the greatest thrillers ever made. We are delighted to screen a beautiful 4K digital restoration of the film, thanks to the British Film Institute.
