Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity


Write The First Customer Review

Exploring classic examples of film noir such as The Asphalt Jungle , Double Indemnity , and The Naked City alongside many lesser-known works, Dimendberg confirms that noir is not simply a reflection of modernity but a virtual continuation of the spaces of the metropolis. He convincingly shows that Hollywood's dark thrillers of the postwar decades were determined by the same forces that shaped the city itself.
