Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 275 – Film Noir - Nominate!!!!

I have a typical film noir record in my CD collection among others, Lydia Lunch's Smoke in the Shadows. It's great to set an atmosphere.

That actually works a treat. :)

Hangover Hotel and the Terry Edwards collaboration, Portrait of the Minus Man. from the same album would also be great for this game. Actually most of this album would fit in perfectly here. :D

I like this scene a lot.


Awesome movie. Jane Randolph is brilliant in this scene. Also have to say I adore Simone Simon, one of France's greatest actresses. :inlove:

Jacques Tourneur was such a brilliant director whenever he got a movie he could get his teeth into. This film and I Walked With A Zombie are both incredibly atmospheric and creepy. I guess both would be classified as horror movies in a way but both had a totally noirish direction to them. There's really nothing horrific in either film, just this thick menacing ambience. Tourneur was such a master of the contrast between light and darkness and the use of shadow. He was a genius the way he used the limitations of black and white film and turned it to his advantage. He used sound incredibly well too. Yeah, this scene is totally awesome.

I love Out Of The Past as well. That's a more conventional film noir but still brilliant with some great performances and another film that one that worked perfectedly in black and white. Oh, and I watched Night of the Demon again last week and that too has some thrilling scenes. I love the way a director like Tourneur can draw a viewer into a film with an understated subtlety and simply create a sense of foreboding by his own directorial skills without ever having to resort to actually filming any blood or violence. He knew how to use the power of suggestion in a way filmmakers of today could only dream of. :bowdown:

A jazz theme? Someone could have warned me :smash:
it's not. just look at "blade runner", which is even given as an example in the description and has a perfectly fitting soundtrack that couldn't be further from jazz.

Johnny Mandel's score for I Want to Live! (a rather late-period noir) is just :hearts:


Anyway, jazz is way more related to classic noir films. The scores of neo-noir films are much more difficult to put in a single category especially when considering how many different genres have influenced them - from Tarantino's mixture of noirs and exploitation films to Almodóvar's noirish Douglas-Sirk-styled melodramas. The scores reflect that.

To be on the safe side, I'm going to say yes.
