Film Noir Summer

Posted in Film with tags , on May 29, 2015 by kozmicdogz


TCM will be offering a free 9 week film course on Film Noir every Friday in June & July:

In this nine-week course, we’ll go back in film history to investigate the “The Case of Film Noir”—the means, motives, and opportunities that led Hollywood studios to make these hard-boiled crime dramas, arguably their greatest contribution to American culture.

This course will run concurrently with the Turner Classic Movies “Summer of Darkness” programming event, airing 24 hours of films noir every Friday in June and July 2015. This is the deepest catalog of film noir ever presented by the network (and perhaps any network), and provides an unprecedented opportunity for those interested in learning more to watch over 100 classic movies as they investigate “The Case of Film Noir.”

Thank you, & Bijou Film Center.

“A key figure of the symbolist movement, Simberg (1873-1917) was known for his unique paintings blending realistic portraiture, landscape, and fantasy, with odd figures often featuring. Devils and trolls are often depicted, as is Death who takes the form of a skeleton wearing a black robe, most famously in The Garden of Death, a theme that Simberg worked on in various forms between 1896-1906.” – from the Public Domain Review.

Simberg’s photographs are available from the Finnish National Gallery and Flickr.
