Kurztext / Annotation
Built around close readings of 11 noir films, this book seeks to refresh our understanding of 'film noir' by returning to the films themselves. Pushing against totalizing or generalizing approaches, which may have the unintended effect of flattening out significant distinctions and differences between individual approaches, Film Noir and the Possibilities of Hollywood argues for the importance of staying attuned the varied and variegated formal, aesthetic and thematic strategies at work in individual films. By focusing on these strategies, the book invites readers to consider anew the enabling possibilities of Hollywood filmmaking in the studio era.

Nathaniel Deyo is a lecturer in the Composition Program at the University of Miami, Florida, USA.
