This course examines film noir as a film movement, a distinctive visual style, a world view, and a cultural phenomenon with special focus on the representation of gender, sexuality, and the power relations. Emerging in American films during the 1940's film noir has continued to influence filmmaking on a worldwide basis, so we will also look briefly at neo-noirs. The relationship of film noir to their literary antecedents in the "hard boiled" school of writing will be discussed and attention will be paid to the artistic as well as socio-political influences on film noir. We will consider as a distinctive vision of American sexual relations as well as a unique approach to Hollywood's cinematic storytelling.
