World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: Proto-Noir

The American film noir genre which flourished briefly in the late 1940s and early 1950s had its roots in German Expressionist films of the 1920s.  The German filmmalkers' thematic preoccupation with the dark side of human nature, expressed in shadowy lighting, stark mise-en-scene and morally ambivalent characters, was profoundly influential upon post-war cinema, and resonates today.
