About this product
- DescriptionThe term film ir still conjures images of a uniquely American malaise: hard-boiled detectives, fatal women, and the shadowy hells of urban life. But from its beginnings, film ir has been an international phemen, and its stylistic icons have migrated across the complex geo-political terrain of world cinema. This book traces film ir's emergent connection to European cinema, its movement within a cosmopolitan culture of literary and cinematic translation, and its postwar consolidation in the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. The authors examine how film ir crosses national boundaries, speaks to diverse international audiences, and dramatizes local crimes and the crises of local spaces in the face of global phemena like world-wide depression, war, political occupation, ecomic and cultural modernization, decolonization, and migration. This fresh study of film ir and global culture also discusses film ir's heterogeneous style and revises important scholarly debates about this perpetually alluring genre.
