Neo-noir: Contemporary Film Noir from Chinatown to The Dark Knight

Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.


A world-weary detective, a seductive femme fatale, a mysterious murder - these elements of classic film noir live again in more recent hardboiled detective films from Chinatown to Sin City. But the themes of noir have also spilled over into gangster movies, as well as creating new genres including psycho-noir (Memento), techno-noir (The Matrix) and superhero-noir (The Dark Knight). Neo-Noir shows how new noir films have drawn upon contemporary social and historical events as well as the latest technological advances in filmmaking to put a new spin on a classic genre.
