For too many filmgoers, film noir is represented only by genre-transcending classics like Double Indemnity and Sunset Boulevard. Eddie Muller’s annual Noir City fest is dedicated to righting that wrong via a weeklong cavalcade of great deep-genre noir. Tonight’s double feature includes two unavailable-on-DVD delights from 1932: Tay Garnett’s Okay America, a pre-code exposé of the greasy relationship between politics, the media, and the mob, and Edward L. Cahn’s police-corruption thriller Afraid to Talk. (SIFF Cinema at the Uptown, 511 Queen Anne Ave N,, Okay America 7 pm, Afraid to Talk 9:30 pm, $12 for both)
