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.
