In the Mood: Film Noir in Photos and on the Big Screen
Inspired by ImproTheatre's LA Noir UnScripted, we thought about looking at present-day Los Angeles through the lens of the genre, and a time gone by. So we dug into our LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr, where we found a few noir-esque shots that evoke the spirit of a time immortalized in film and stories, where trenchcoat-sporting private dicks navigated the dark streets--and darker barrooms--of the City of Angels.
It's going to get even easier to get into the noir mood starting tomorrow, thanks to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (aka the Oscars) who are launching a 15-film screening series called "Oscar Noir: 1940s Writing Nominees From Hollywood's Dark Side." The film series starts tomorrow night with The Maltese Falcon, and runs Monday evenings until August 30th.
