Film Noir Openings

Essay - Film Noir Openings - Part One / Part Two

My predilection is to define film noir as a specific period, a movement, between the years 1940 and 1958, which gives weighted balance to social/cultural issues and industry factors (post-World War 2 malaise/uncertainty, changes in the family structure, Cold War paranioa, exodus of German/Austrian talent to the US during the rise of Nazism, etc.). There is little reason to go over this area since it has been treaded over to death. It is important, however, in my structural account of film noir openings, to discuss it in an historical context. I have decided to narrow my area of study to the years 1940 to 1950 –which could be considered as the classic period (or moment) of film noir.

Donato Totaro's insightful narrative on meaning and structure. A different focus to the general noir essay. One may agree or disagree with the points outlined in this deconsctruction, but an interesting and good read nonetheless.

Rebecca Collins

One of the most underrated stars of music today at time of writing, but not for long we hope, with both haunting and lyrical style of experimental jazz era with a contemporaneous twist. In a single word Collins' music can be described; stunning.

French Noir

http://filmsdefrance.com/Best_Policiers.html

The film policier developed in French cinema from early attempts to emulate American film noir in the 1940s. The genre has passed through several phases (including polar, neo-polar and, most recently, post-noir), but the film noir origins are almost nearly always recognisable.

Many of these French noir films are in stock in DVD with the titles given in the above link, available on Amazon.com

If it can come as any recommendation at all, we placed Blind Faith and Envy as music artists for feature film. Blind Faith and Envy cover all of the bases; wall of sound, heavy without being overt, lyrical, ability to be eclectic, improvise, know their craft, expansive. In other words, the all important X-factor so many search for, but few realize.

Neo Noir Anime

http://productionig.com http://www.cowboybebop.org

Not too much mention is made in the West of the beautiful sci-fi noir anime Ghost In The Shell series. Takayuki Goto's Production I.G is more widely known outside Japan for the brilliant anime section; the rise of O-Ren Ishii to head the Yakuza crime syndicate in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Vol.1. Another great anime worth a look is Shinichiro Watanabe and Keiko Nobumoto's Cowboy Beebop, dark edgy undertones and a great cast of characters in this 1998 26 episode series.

For the Love of Film (Noir)

"When Farran Nehme (The Self-Styled Siren) and I first started talking about doing a fundraising blogathon for film preservation, we didn’t know how much interest we would generate. Our choice of charity to support, the National Film Preservation Foundation, concentrates a great deal of its attention on rescuing the most endangered American films—silent films. And love for silent films is rabid, but not widespread." "We’re pleased to announce our second fundraiser, For the Love of Film (Noir), to benefit the Film Noir Foundation. If you’ve been as lucky as I have to attend the FNF’s Noir City, you know they present a terrific line-up, including lesser-known noir films that can’t be seen any other way. This summer, I was thrilled to see a film FNF president Eddie Muller wrote about for the first For the Love of Film blogathon, Cry Danger, as well as City That Never Sleeps, a noir shot in my own hometown, on the only 35mm print known to exist."

Marilyn Ferdinand "I started Ferdy on Films because I wanted to produce a publication-quality blog where I could indulge my love of writing and film at the same time, with total content, illustration, and layout control. I hope to provide unique content by following my offroad approach to film viewing and analysis and thereby fill a need that mainstream film sites may not."

Roderick Heath "My desire in film criticism has always been to celebrate the cinema in its diversity, to explore the pleasures and mystique of good movies, and to tackle the cultural resonance of film as both an art form and a vehicle of entertainment. I love to look for signs of creativity and commitment in even the most demeaned genres, and also dig as deeply as I can into the meaning and method behind cinema’s most important works."
