Week 3 - Night and the Cities: The Suspense-driven World of Film Noir
A private detective down on his luck. A beautiful woman with a shady past. Dead bodies in dark corridors, and offices lit through Venetian blinds. A world of chain-smoking deceivers and loners, con artists and killers, drifters and doomed lovers – each double-dealing his way toward an uncertain and possibly fatal future.
