The public's never-ending fascination with detective stories stretches at least as far back as the 19th century, and continues today. This series of detective films and TV shows presents examples of the classic detective, but also branches out to include broader definitions of "detective," as well as exciting mysteries from countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Attend the series, and you may find your own definition of "detective" changing...and you may discover a new favorite film, or two.
Have FUN and enjoy a brief presentation by a School of Theatre, Film & Television faculty member just before the screening.







The great British gentleman detectives - Sherlock Holmes...Hercule Poirot...Inspector Morse - all exude integrity, competence and charm. For this screening, we look at something completely different as we explore the darker side of the British detective genre through Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald (played by Robbie Coltrane), a police psychologist, who is excellent at working his way into the minds of criminals, but is himself a wreck. In the series Cracker, Coltrane's Fitz demonstrates British TV's sophisticated confrontation of questions of morality and decency.


Cracker is preceded
