Abstract:

"According to many critics, the era of film noir ended with the 1958 release of Orson Welles's classic Touch of Evil. However, the style was not dead but rather transformed, and two years later, Alfred Hitchcock ushered in a new era of noir films with the release of his 1960 masterpiece, Psycho." "Film scholar Ronald Schwartz examines the most significant representatives of this cinematic style, beginning with Hitchcock's shocker and concluding with Michael Mann's Collateral (2004). Schwartz provides in-depth analyses of more than thirty of the best neo-noir films and describes the qualities and characteristics of the new noir style. He also explains how it differs from film noir of the 1940s and 1950s." "Neo-Noir also includes and alphabetical filmography listing more than 650 films that reflect the diversity of the genre in plot, style, or subject matter. This reference work is a resource for film scholars and fans alike who wish to further explore the ever-evolving aspects of neo-noir cinema."--BOOK JACKET.
