Just because something isn’t labeled “noir” doesn’t mean it doesn’t possess some of the same elements of a noir. The movie Charade (1963) is a movie that is technically categorized as a thriller/mystery, but there are some arguable components to consider it to be noir-esque. There trailer is here!
Looking at the following images, you can sense some parallels without even watching the movie — the movie poster tells it to you. Just from these images you see a man with a gun, a woman by his side, and violent scenes.
In my presentation, I will discuss elements of noir that I find and synthesize them with the readings and discussions from class.
