Product Overview

Film scholar Ronald Schwartz examines the most significant representatives of the "Neo-Noir" style, beginning with Alfred Hitchcock''s Psycho and concluding with Michael Mann''s Collateral (2004). Schwartz provides in-depth analyses of over 30 of the best "Neo-Noir" films and explains the qualities and characteristics of the "new noir" style. He also explains how it differs from "Film Noir" of the forties and fifties. In this chronological guide, Schwartz examines such landmark films as The Manchurian Candidate (1962), The French Connection (1971), Taxi Driver (1976), Reservoir Dogs (1992), L.A. Confidential (1997), and Memento (2000). The book also includes an alphabetical filmography listing over 650 films that in plot, style, or subject matter reflect the diversity of the genre. This reference work will be a valuable resource for film scholars and fans who wish to explore the ever-evolving aspects of "Neo-Noir" cinema.
