Los Angeles cité du Film Noir

Watch the film here:

The approach to the subject matter is innovative in so far as it focus on Los Angeles as the model for urban crime. And who else would be better suited to talk about the underbelly of the city than James Ellroy.

As L.A inspired most of the film noir it is through the city that the story of the genre will be told. Alain Silver, author of L.A Noir, and Eddie Muller, author and President of the Film Noir Foundation in L.A will also contribute their findings. Clips of the most important film noir titles will round off a re-appraisal of the popular genre: Double IndemnitySunset BoulevardBig SleepGun CrazyScarlet StreetThe Big ComboCross Fire, China TownKiss Me DeadlyMildred PierceLauraL.A Confidential.
