All you need to know about Film Noir

Whether it’s Double Indemnity, Kiss Me Deadly, or The Big Sleep, roam a screen world of dark and brooding elegance with this essential handbook to Film Noir. From private eyes and perfect crimes to corrupt cops and doomed affairs, editors Paul Duncan and Jürgen Müller examine noir’s key themes and their most representative movies from 1940 to 1960.

Copiously illustrated with film stills as well as original posters, this book offers page after page of noir’s masterful visual compositions while exploring the narrative paradigms of this cryptic, compelling, and evolving genre. If that weren’t enough to tickle your cinematic appetite, the volume concludes with TASCHEN’s top 50 pick of noir classics.

Brimming with the enigmatic dames, desperate gangsters, and psycho killers that continue to cast a long and captivating shadow over cinema, this is a must-have handbook for noir aficionados and amateurs alike.

A Spotlight on the Past

TopDog,24 settembre 2023
Cinema in its best light. For connaisseurs and amateurs of real cinema, when special effects and computers did not exist but only lightbulbs, candles, matches, cigarette smoke, lamp posts or gaslight. A bygone era gloriously brought back to life in its full splendor - and with only two colours.

Eine Huldigung des Film Noir

Minerva,23 settembre 2023
Das erste Drittel des Buches besteht aus einer Beschreibung des Genres, randvoll mit Produktionsdetails und wirklich schönen Fotos. Danach Folgt eine Liste der von den Herausgebern zusammengestellten 50 besten Noir Filmen. Es gibt von jedem Film ein ganzseitiges Filmplakat, eine ausführliche Inhaltsangabe, aufgelistete Eckdaten über z.B. das Produktionsjahr, die Regie und die wichtigsten Darsteller und auch hier sehr schöne Fotos. Es sind jedoch Filme dabei, wie "Rebecca" und "Gaslicht", die zwar großartig, aber nicht dem Film Noir zuzuordnen sind. Mir persönlich fehlen dagegen "Der Gläserne Schlüssel", "Die blaue Dahlie" und "Die Narbenhand" in den TOP 50. Die beiden letzteren werden jedoch im ersten Drittel erwähnt. Was mir ebenfalls fehlt, ist ein richtiges Inhaltsverzeichnis. Die Filme aus der Liste sind chronologisch sortiert und in der Einleitung gibt es eine Gliederung, welche nach Themenpunkten (z.B.: "Die Last der Vergangenheit", Der Privatdetektiv",...) sortiert ist, aber es ist nicht möglich, einen Filmtitel, Schauspieler oder Regisseur zu suchen. Das finde ich schade, denn die meisten Leser werden das Buch nicht wie einen Roman durchlesen, sondern es als Nachschalgewerk nutzen. Wirklich klasse ist auch die Verarbeitung - es wiegt richtig schwer und hochwertig in der Hand - die schon erwähnten stimmungsvollen Fotos und der überraschend günstige Preis.

el libro en si.

Excellent discussion of film noir, and especially the top fifty films noir. Great pictures from the films. Criticism: would be easier to navigate the first half if it included an index of films.

Another Silver Winner

Joe M.,19 agosto 2023
This is a solid introduction to the genre of film noir from the accomplished author, historian, and producer Alain Silver. As someone who owns a number of Silver's books - his volumes The Vampire Film (1975), The Samurai Film (1977), and The Gangster Film Reader (2007) are three particular favourites of mine of his works - this is another welcome addition. This latest offering, though, doesn't quite measure up to his best books - it looks nice, is well-ilustrated, and the films discussed are correct, but the print is a little too small for my tastes. Still, this is a good tome from a writer who really knows his stuff. It's the perfect inauguration for those with a strong curiosity about film noir and want to learn what all the fuss is about. Recommended!
