Summary "Into the shadows. Noir in the spotlight. Enter a world populated by private eyes, gangsters, psychopaths, and femme fatales, where deception, lust, and betrayal run rampant...If your heart rate just increased a bit, you'll covet this book - the first film-by-film photography book on film noir and neo-noir. Beginning with silent, German, and French films that were early influences on the genre, the book continues right up to the present day with the film "Drive". Entries include posters, tons of rare stills, cast/crew details, quotes from the films and from critics, and analyses of the films. Film director, film noir scholar, and "Taxi Driver" screenwriter Paul Schrader provides the introduction to this feast of noir worship"--Publisher's description.
