THE PHILOSOPHY OF FILM NOIR – “It’s always night.”

January 19, 2012

The Philosophy of Film Noir by Mark T. Conrad, 2006

244 pages, The University Press of Kentucky, 27.99

 

 

The emphasis is on “philosophy” but some of the essays, such as, “The Darker Shade: Realism in Neo-Noir” and Jerold J. Abrams take on the different kinds of mazes and how they are reflected in various stages of Noir make for insightful reading. Plus there are the endless titles that will send you to your library’s on-line catalog.

Here’s my own take:

To order this book driectly from Amazon for $24.95, click: The Philosophy of Film Noir (The Philosophy of Popular Culture)

    • It is worth reading although I admit I got my copy from the library. John
