World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: NOIR-ISH

Film noir was a short-lived but influential genre that reflected the post-war ambience of anxiety, alienation, moral corruption and ambiguity, guilt, suspicion, and paranoia.  Though the movies in this program arguably lie outside of the genre as strictly defined, each rings its own distinctive variation on the familiar film noir formula.
