"In the world of film noir style becomes paramount," wrote Paul Schrader in his seminal "Notes on Film Noir." In "The Noir Style, " experts Alain Silver and James Ursini analyze the look of noir--its elements and their impact on the most American of film movements--revisiting the territory they made their own in their classic "Film Noir: The Encyclopedia."
Silver and Ursini trace the development of noir to its origins and documents its borrowings from other visual arts, with chapters covering each of the recurring motifs that define the genre. Stills and background are provided for classics like "A Touch of Evil, The Postman Always Rings Twice, " and "In a Lonely Place." Both an indispensable reference guide and an irresistible treat for film buffs, "The Noir Style" is an engaging and informative addition to the literature of film.
A new afterword examines how the tropes of noir continue to be relevant for contemporary filmmakers.
