Watergate Cinematek presents Straight Time, a low-key film on the inexorable siren call of crime. Dustin Hoffman stars as a charming ex-con doing his best to stay on the right side of the law. But the mask slips incrementally, and soon the thrill-addicted career criminal is drawn into another high-stakes heist. Made during Hoffman's remarkable string of '70s films - and wedged between the releases of Marathon Man and Kramer v. Kramer - this lesser-known crime drama will be screened with a brief introduction from critic Christina Newland.

**This film will be screened in 35mm**
