So, apparenty November is also known as #Noirvember now (thanks to Marya, My Sweet), which is a really cool way to celebrate ‘the Noir’ and maybe motivate ourselves to watch/rewatch some of the classics. I have managed to watch Detour, which I thought was okay-ish (though I expected a bit more given it`s cult status), I hope to find some time to rewatch maybe Laura, The Third Man or Double Indemnity, which I consider some of my favourites.
Initially I planned to write something on Naremore`s very interesting More Than Night: Film Noir in Its Contexts which I have been reading for a few months now, but given how much work I have left in the next few weeks, I doubt I will be able to finish it on time. I will write something about it eventually though 🙂
To get you in the mood / inspired there`s a fantastic selection of beautiful Noir shots at One.Perfect.Shot, which you can find here: https://t.co/4grUPRcvi9
p.s. Detour is now public domain, and you can watch it for free on the internet.
