Film 2700 2/9 The Legacy of German Expressionism Film Noir (1940-50)  Named such by French critics around 1952/53  Formerly known simply as detective or crime fictions Dramatic Qualities of Film Noir:  Urban settings, city of crime  Corruption and crime  Investigations  Flashbacks  Anti-heroes (often journalists, PI’s, detectives)  Femme Fatales (attractive but dangerous)  Victims of FF: direct (lover, mother, brother, etc) and indirect (anti- hero) 2/11 FLASHBACK DAY *woo* *exciting* *flashbacks* >Film Noir renowned for flashbacks< Mnemonic act: point of the flashback in the diegetic timeline (diegetic= within world of narrative) Mnemonic: memory revealed through visual Flashback Markers Intertitles (ie “6 months earlier”) Changes in color (black and white, sepia tones) Objects that offer connection (looking at photograph, then flashback to event in photo) and contradiction (looking at a modern day car, then flashback to see an old model car) Special effects and editing (rewind effect, flash) Types of Flashbacks (or flashforwards) 1) External a. Flashback to something that happened BEFORE beginning of film b. Ex: movie is set in 2016, and we flashback to an event in 2005 2) Internal a. Flashback to something that happened within diegetic timeline of film i. Repetition: shows something we’ve already seen (so we see it when it’s in the present and when it’s in the past) ii. Gap filling: part of diegetic timeline but we haven’t seen it before; something omitted (ellipsis) (like if a character goes to the store off-screen, and then later we see what happened at the store)  Ellipsis: an omission, a temporal void in the narrative. Different from “meanwhile” logic! o “meanwhile” logic: two things happening at same time o Ellipsis: “6 months later”, period of time completely removed
