Requiem for a Killer: The Making of Blast of Silence

Allen Baron’s film noir BLAST OF SILENCE (1961) was almost impossible to see for years, known only by reputation until a small but revelatory revival in the ’90s. REQUIEM FOR A KILLER: THE MAKING OF BLAST OF SILENCE is a 60-minute documentary shot largely in 1991 by Wilfried Reichart (after the film’s rediscovery at the Munich Film Festival) and expanded by Robert Fischer in 2007. Baron is a good host, sharing stories and observations as he walks through the locations (circa 1991) and talks about the film and his career, and he bookends the production with new interviews from his home in 2006.
