Text Quotes
I think a film noir demands a beginning and an end  (Film Noir Quotes) As the tall dark and handsome male star, Carey Grant always stands for male beauty and desirability, whether in a 30s screwball, a 40s film noir, or a 50s romantic comedy. He consequently turns around the orthodox gender between the one who looks and so desires, and the one who is looked at, and so is being desired  (Film Noir Quotes) Film noir has a mood that everyone can feel. It’s people in trouble, at night, with a little bit of wind and the right kind of music. It’s a beautiful thing.  (Film Noir Quotes) I’m into clothes, but in a way that’s related to wanting to walk into a film noir movie. You know, I love to go to vintage stores, but mostly it’s stuff that I don’t have anywhere to wear... I don’t have the life that goes with the clothes.  (Film Noir Quotes) With a genre like film noir, everyone has these assumptions and expectations. And once all of those things are in place, that’s when you can really start to twist it about and mess around with it.  (Film Noir Quotes) In narrative cinema, a certain terminology has already been established: ‘film noir,’ ‘Western,’ even ‘Spaghetti Western.’ When we say ‘film noir’ we know what we are talking about. But in non-narrative cinema, we are a little bit lost. So sometimes, the only way to make us understand what we are talking about is to use the term ‘avant-garde.’  (Film Noir Quotes) There are specific times where film noir is a natural concomitant of the mood. When there’s insecurity, collapse of financial systems - that’s where film noir always hits fertile ground  (Film Noir Quotes) Film noir is not a genre. It is not defined, as are the western and gangster genres, by conventions of setting and conflict, but rather by the more subtle qualities of tone and mood. It is a film ‘noir’, as opposed to the possible variants of film gray or film off-white  (Film Noir Quotes) I admire hard-bitten, wisecracking realism of Ida Lupino and the film noir heroines. I’m sick of simpering white girls with their princess fantasies  (Film Noir Quotes) I am grateful for what I call well-spent moments: Making a tuna fish sandwich with the works. Taking at least a half hour to eat it outside. Ironing my vintage tea towels while watching old black-and-white film noir movies and sipping one martini with extra olives - a quirky combination, but it works  (Film Noir Quotes) Yes, to me that’s one of the most compelling fears in film noir and the psychological thriller genre - that fear of conspiracy. It’s definitely something that I have a fear of - not being in control of your own life. I think that’s something people can relate to, and those genres are most successful when they derive the material from genuine fears that people have  (Film Noir Quotes) Billy Wilder is really is a heavy influence on Bound. We felt that film noir was a genre where you could create a really contained story. We wanted to be on a set as much as we could to get the kind of style level we were looking for  (Film Noir Quotes) That was certainly true the first time, when I did Body Heat, the first movie that I directed. I was looking for a vessel to tell a certain kind of story, and I was a huge fan of Film Noir, and what I liked about it was that it was so extreme in style  (Film Noir Quotes) Robert Pattinson has the face of a film-noir dupe. It’s a face that is searching and open and kind. It’s a face that a certain type of woman might want to fool because, in its intensely old-fashioned kindness, the face says, I love you. Fool me  (Film Noir Quotes) I didn’t know I was doing film noir, I thought they were detective stories with low lighting!  (Film Noir Quotes) I admire hard bitten, wisecracking realism of Ida Lupino and the film noir heroines. I'm sick of simpering white girls with their princess fantasies  (Film Noir Quotes) Is there something in druggy subjects that encourages directors to make imitation film noir? Film noir itself becomes an addiction  (Film Noir Quotes) With a genre like film noir, everyone has these assumptions and expectations. and once all of those things are in place, that’s when you can really start to twist it about and mess around with it  (Film Noir Quotes) One difference between film noir and more straightforward crime pictures is that noir is more open to human flaws and likes to embed them in twisty plot lines  (Film Noir Quotes) I always find myself gravitating to the analogy of a maze. Think of film noir and if you picture the story as a maze, you don’t want to be hanging above the maze watching the characters make the wrong choices because it’s frustrating. You actually want to be in the maze with them, making the turns at their side, that keeps it more exciting... I quite like to be in that maze  (Film Noir Quotes) Film noir has a mood that everyone can feel. It’s people in trouble, at night, with a little bit of wind and the right kind of music. It’s a beautiful thing  (Film Noir Quotes)
