This Saturday: NOIR-ISH

Film noir (literally, "black film") was a short-lived but extremely influential American genre rooted in German Expressionism. It developed during and immediately after World War II, taking advantage of the post-war climate of anxiety, pessimism and suspicion. Films noir reflected the insecurities of that Cold War period when the threat of nuclear annihilation was ever-present, and the genre counter-balanced the reflexive optimism of Hollywood musicals and comedies. The skewed perspectives of anti-heroes and femmes fatale in film noir were a metaphoric symptom of society's ills, with a strong undercurrent of moral conflict; in film noir, hilarity does not ensue.
