Film Noir Classics: The Deviant Genre


Course description

What is film noir and why are we still fascinated by it? Seen as a counter-tradition to Hollywood movies, '40s and '50s film noir incorporated various influences, from hard boiled detective fiction and German expressionism to Freudian pop psychology and French fatalism. In this course, we will view the classic film noirs from 1942 to 1955: This Gun for Hire, Murder My Sweet, Farewell My Lovely, In a Lonely Place, Night and the City and Kiss Me Deadly. We'll discuss elements that make up film noir, and discover how a brief period of mostly B-movies became one of the most influential movements in film history.
