KLUTE | Dir. Alan J. Pakula | 1971 | 104 min

New York call girl Bree Daniels (Jane Fonda) unwittingly becomes enmeshed in the investigation of the disappearance of a business executive. Detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) who has been hired to look into the disappearance, follows Bree, eventually becoming romantically involved with her. Discovering that Bree is the next target, it is up to her and Klute to figure out who is after her before it is too late.

Klute is the first “Willis” film that forms our Spotlight Series on American cinematographers Gordon Willis and Haskell Wexler. To learn more about this intriguing series, read our Whitepaper written by Cinematheque Board Member and Programmer Felicia Glatz:

EXCERPT: “Gordon Willis’ 1971 crime thriller Klute centers on Bree (Jane Fonda) a New York call girl. The subject of John Klute’s (Donald Sutherland) missing person’s investigation, she occupies the majority of our attention on and off screen, a feature of Fonda’s magnetism in general. The two maintain a restrained chemistry, coming together in an awkward symbiosis in order to find answers and protection. Steeped in era specific regalia, Alan J Pakula points demandingly toward the glaring discourses of women’s liberation, prostitution, and anti-Vietnam war sentiment. Enhancing these themes of course is Willis’ meditative lens, patiently surveilling our main characters as they negotiate control and comfort. It is also an example of Willis’ strict but effective geometry, tight interiors and likewise slowly constrictive shots personify the danger stalking forever just outside of frame.”
