The Noir Style
Available in Stock
Film noir is as popular as ever – but how do you recognize it? Illustrated with 172 richly atmospheric black-and-white stills, this handsome volume analyses film noir from the classic era of The Maltese Falcon (1941), through A Touch of Evil (1958) to the present. It traces the genre’s inspirations in German Expressionism, the paintings of Edward Hopper and the photographs of Weegee, and explores its enduring motifs: the city at night, the reckless moment, and the femme fatale.
