Many of us are familiar with the tropes and motifs of 1940s noir: the shadows and shadowy characters, the femme fatales, the canted angles, the mysteries, and the murder. In the 1970s, neo-noir emerged as a spin-off genre with similar narratives, but formal and stylistic changes. This is a 3-week course on neo-noir.
