A History of the Classic American Film Noir

Reviews

"Dickos spins a good web for film noir addicts."—Culture Vulture

"Traces classic American film noir back to its antecedents in German Expressionism and the Golden Age of French Cinema in the 1930s, which have not been given their due."—Gene D. Phillips, author of Creatures of Darkness: Raymond Chander, Detective Fiction, and Film Noir

"Dickos's work skillfully plumbs this 'dark cinema,' a style that is recognized in such recent productions as The Usual Suspects (1995) and Memento (2001) but whose heyday resides between The Maltese Falcon (1941) and Touch of Evil (1958)."—Library Journal

"It is refreshing to see a book that shifts away from specific textual analysis and criticism to an historical focus. In so doing it not only reminds us of the vastness of the noir canon, but also the marginalization of many overlooked texts and directors."—Literature/Film Quarterly

"A concrete, concise study of noir against an impressive historical vista that brings to light the complex relation between alienation and obsession that makes up these films."—Rain Taxi Review

"Definitely stands among the better studies of the film genre."—Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

"The best book available on the genre of movies set in the dark, wet streets of the urban U.S."—Choice

"El autor analiza con acierto las caracteristícas del estilo y estructuras del 'cine negro.' La influencia del 'cine negro' sigue presente en el cine actual, por eso la lectura de un libro como Street with No Name resulta muy ú til."—Todo Sobre Cine

"Shrewdly analyzes those movies."—Wall Street Journal
