Film Noir Fest

Noirvember Film Noir Fest

Film noir is one of the defining cinema styles.This style is heavily influenced by current events and politics. Some of the themes explored in film noir are: Postwar anxiety and societal malaise, Guilt and dread, Psychoanalysis and trauma, Criminality and the limits of rational investigation, Existential despair, The inability to separate truth from lies, and The role of women in postwar society (TCM Presents Into the Darkness: Investigating Film Noir, Richard L. Edwards, Ph.D.). It can be argued that the USA may be headed into another noir phase following the 911 attack.

As it becomes darker and colder in November it is time to sit back and enjoy classic film noir as a part of your own Noirvember.
