FILM NOIR

FILM NOIR MOVIES WORTH WATCHING.

 

I am a big Film Noir Fan and from time to time I come across some really interesting Movies that I believe are well worth watching for any person interested in the Genre. I have watched all of the online movies I post on this page and regardless of my personal opinion I still offer a link for you. For those of you unfamiliar with Film Noir it is a cycle of mainly American films of the 1940s and 1950s exploring the darker aspects of modernity, and usually set in a criminal milieu or exploring the consequences of a criminal act. Film Noir is not only for film buffs and academics. The filmmakers of the 40s and 50s were not making ‘film noir’ movies, they were making pictures for a wide audience which are still immensely entertaining. They retained their popularity, firstly because the noir themes and motives have universal appeal; film noir movies are about the individual in a hostile universe, and in the best noirs, the antihero has at least a shot at redemption. Secondly, they are so well made with a craft and discipline we don’t often see anymore. I hope you enjoy the movies as much as I do.
