Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: The Untouchables
The Untouchables (Brian De Palma, 1987, 119 mins)
Prohibition agent Eliot Ness goes after Al Capone in this “unqualified triumph” (James Berardinelli) starring Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, Andy García, and an Oscar-winning Sean Connery. “Superb performances, exquisite direction, and that Ennio Morricone score create an authentic 1920s Chicago feel and a hugely entertaining crime drama” (Ian Nathan).
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
