Re: Essay on French origins of film noir in the 1930s
Thanks for posting the link. Much food for thought in the essay. French cinema in the 1930s is a constant revelation. I've watched and rewatched several of the films discussed. The point made about the absence of private eyes and police precedurals in 1930s French noir is very telling, I think.
