Let’s open our eyes to enjoy thriller films with unique visual styles.
Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, which were popular from the early 1940s to the late 1950s. Film noir of this era is associated with a low-key, black-and-white visual style that has roots in German Expressionist cinematography, together with elements of French Poetic Realism, New York style street photography and detective novels.
Generally, film noir encompasses a range of plots: dark side of the city, crime psychology, private investigator, femme fatale while the tone and style of the films are characterized by strong contrast of light and shadows, unbalanced composition, flashbacks and first-person narrative from the lead player.
In addition, there is an Opening Party for “The Good, the Bad and the Ambiguous – A Film Noir Series” from 7pm to 7:30pm on September 9, and a talk entitled “There is a kind of film… dark film” from 7:30pm to 9pm in order to let audiences better understand what film noir is.
