I've created a facebook group for Summer Of Darkness, I do not have a twitter and thought a facebook group would be a nice place for some discussions on the topic. https://www.facebook.com/groups/103357930003601/
NateOfTheLivingDead replied to Screenfiend's topic in Summer of Darkness: Investigating Film NoirI agree, the close up was powerful. I was also intrigued by the train entering the tunnel, Seems our instructor meant us to go there, to stay in the shadows
NateOfTheLivingDead replied to a topic in Summer of Darkness: Investigating Film NoirAs many of you also noted, the children's song reminded me of the numerous children's songs in horror movies, no doubt influenced by Lang, I agree that this could be the start of this, overused trope. The girl walks into the street and is almost hit by a car and a policemen has to protect her. The theme of protecting the vulnerable seems to come up in Film Noir a lot, A woman or a child is in danger, a precious item is stolen, I wonder how important this is. The world is a dark and dangerous place, and there are people in it who need help, protection of some kind.
