[AB#6] Film Nior, William Luhr



Luhr, W. (2012) Film noir. Malden: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd).

Film noir is a style of film with cinematography that menace and doom. This book discusses strategies of film noir and its nature to be appealing to audiences. Film Noir also explores the difficulty in defining a genre that menaces the viewer’s space. This book challenges conventional Hollywood by breaking moral codes and violating traditional structure of filmmaking. Similar to Mise-En-Scene, film noir uses what we see to explain the dark mood of a narrator. Doom is one of the main ingredients to film appeal and retention. Once a director achieves the goal of showing the flaws of a narrator, you will know you have achieved film noir.
