Voted the 20th Century’s greatest ever British film in a BFI survey – The Third Man, directed by Carol Reed and written by Graham Greene, is acknowledged to be one of the truly great noir mysteries.

The film follows the progress of an unassuming and naive popular writer, Holly Martins, as he visits a divided and ruined Vienna shortly after the Second World War, only to discover that his friend, Harry Lime (Orson Welles), has just died. In his investigation into what happened, the film explores the nature of loyalty, treachery, complicity and amorality. The brief talk after the film, by Dr. Gerald Lang (University of Leeds), will address some of these themes.

— Philosophy & Film is an ongoing series, held in partnership with the University of Leeds, exploring philosophical questions raised by some of cinema’s most intriguing films.
