Film noir - - "Term used to describe those Hollywood films of the 40s and 50s which portrayed the dark and gloomy underworld of crime and corruption, films whose heroes as well as villains are cynical, disillusioned, and often insecure loners, inextricably bound to the past and unsure of apathetic about the future. In style and technique, there are night scenes and lighting that emphasizes deep shadows emphasizing fatalism. Dark tones, tense nervousness, doom-laden compositions and camera angles."
