More than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts

More than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts

James Naremore


"Film noir" inspires stories of classy, cynical, black-and-white videos from the Nineteen Forties and '50s—melodramas approximately deepest eyes, femmes fatales, felony gangs, and fans at the run. James Naremore's prize-winning publication discusses those images, but additionally exhibits that the crucial time period is extra complicated and paradoxical than we become aware of. It treats noir as a time period in feedback, as an expression of creative modernism, as a symptom of Hollywood censorship and politics, as a marketplace method, as an evolving variety, and as an idea that circulates via all of the media. This new and multiplied version of More Than evening contains an extra bankruptcy on movie noir within the twenty-first century.
