This course is an introduction to and exploration of film noir in a variety of contexts. While we will primarily focus on Hollywood noir of the 1940s and 1950s, the class will also study the way noir has traveled across and outside its commonly assigned cultural, temporal, and geographic borders. In addition to examining the origins of and influences on film noir (for example, German Expressionism, the American gangster film, or the hard-boiled detective novel), its stylistic conventions and thematic preoccupations, we’ll end the course by considering its enduring appeal in the more recent manifestations of neo-noir. Films may include Double Indemnity, The Postman Always Rings Twice, Asphalt Jungle, The Killers, This Gun for Hire, Kiss Me Deadly, Detour, Force of Evil, Night and the City, Chinatown, Shoot the Piano Player, Stray Dog, Devil in a Blue Dress, Bound, L.A. Confidential, and Drive.
