Femmes fatales, shady alleyways, betrayal and murder. A documentary about the classic, black and white detective movies produced in Hollywood in the 1940s and 50s, and which belong to the filmgenre of film noir.
Who else would be better suited to talk about the underbelly of the city than James Ellroy. As Los Angeles inspired most of the film noir it is through this city that the story of the genre will be told. Alain Silver, author of LA Noir, and Eddie Muller, author and President of the Film Noir Foundation in LA will also contribute their findings. Clips of the most important film noir titles will round off a re-appraisal of the popular genre.
This is a trip into the depths of the Underworld Noir: of \”Double Indemnity\”, in \”Sunset Boulevard\”, through masterpieces as \”Out of the Past\”, \”Criss Cross\”, \”D.O.A\”, \”The Big Combo\” to \”Chinatown\”, \”The Long Goodbye\”, \”LA Confidential\” and \”Mulholland Drive\”, Los Angeles is the city of film noir.
