Film Noir
Home Up Feedback Contents Search

Film Noir, literally Dark Film, has been around for a long time. It really got it's start in the forties with all those seedy dramas that showed the side of the street decent people never went. Most of the classic film noir movies are in black and white but the genre has been brought into the modern era not only with color. With the addition of a new sub-genre, the Sci-Fi Noir, Film Noir has come into the modern age.. In this new type of film not only is the movie about times or events that have not yet come about but the mood is dark and mysterious. There is also Neo-Noir. This is an updated variation of this format. Usually, this film has an anti-hero, almost as bad as the villain and a beautiful femme fatale to tempt all in the film.
