  1. Film Noir Guide - 745 Films of the Classic Era (1940-1959)'s icon

    Film Noir Guide - 745 Films of the Classic Era (1940-1959)

    Favs/dislikes: 56:1. "More than 700 films from the classic period of film noir (1940 to 1959) are presented in this exhaustive reference book. For each film, the following information is provided: the title, release date, main performers, screenwriter(s), director(s), type of noir, thematic content, a rating based on the five-star system, and a plot synopsis that does not reveal the ending." Keaney's ratings: #1-27: ★★★★★ #28-51: ★★★★½ #52-159: ★★★★ #160-255: ★★★½ #256-404: ★★★ #405-550: ★★½ #551-659: ★★ #660-727: ★½ #728-745: ★ Michael F.

  2. British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)'s icon

    British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)

    Favs/dislikes: 34:0. "This work presents 369 British films produced between 1937 and 1964 that embody many of the same filmic qualities as those "black films" made in the United States during the classic film noir era. This reference work makes a case for the inclusion of the British films in the film noir canon, which is still considered by some to be an exclusively American inventory. The following information is presented: a quotation from the film; title and release date; a one- to five-star rating; production company, director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and main performers; and a plot synopsis with commentary. Appendices categorize films by rating, release date, director and cinematographer and also provide a noir and non-noir breakdown of the 47 films presented on the Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre, a 1960 British television series." NOTE: I created this list in May 2012 and had to add well over 75 titles to iCM, suggesting that there are many obscurities worth checking out. Keaney included 26 of the 47 Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre "films" into this work that he considered to be film noirs or at the very least marginal noirs. The remaining 21 "films" were not included. Keaney's ratings: #1-4: ★★★★★ #5-15: ★★★★½ #16-42: ★★★★ #43-85: ★★★½ #86-150: ★★★ #151-234: ★★½ #235-312: ★★ #313-339: ★½ #340-341: ★ #342-369: "Not reviewed" (since they were not available at the time of writing).

    Gothic: The Dark Heart of Film

    Favs/dislikes: 23:0. In October 2013, the British Film Institute unveiled an exhibition chronicling the history of dark and macabre films. In an ambitious project, the BFI unveiled a collection of a large number of films spanning four categories, bringing these films to British cinemas over a four month period. Films are arranged chronologically by theme. The Four Parts: - Monstrous (1-26) - The Dark Arts (27-48) - Haunted (49-71) - Love is a Devil (72-99) Although this exhibition includes a large number of plays, professional talks, documentaries, television series' and shorts, this list contains only the feature films presented in the exhibition.
