Product description

Review

Grant, a ridiculously prolific writer and critic, serves up pithy capsule overviews of, yes, more than 3,500 films, from the certified noir classics ( Double Indemnity, The Maltese Falcon, Out of the Past) to lesser-known pulps, neo-noirs and foreign titles. The hard-boiled P.I., the femme fatale, the ominous shadows angling menacingly across back-alley walls, the corruption, the lust, the losers . . . all here, with generous spreads of black-and-white and color art, too. --Philadelphia Inquirer

Though your typical movie fan is going to have a good feel for what makes a flick film noir, the definition can be slippery if you try to pin it down. It has a definite feel, but is at the same time imprecise in its boundaries. In his encyclopedia of the genre, author Grant solves this problem by simply stating, ''you know what it is when you see it.'' It's a blast to read this book. Though it's easy to skim for particular periods and countries, I found it most rewarding to read in big chunks. Combing through in this way led to some great discoveries. I've now got a viewing list that will keep me busy for a long time. A helpful appendix in the back also groups films by actor, author and director. Reading the introduction is vital to understanding the language and concepts of noir used throughout the encyclopedia. Grant does an excellent job concisely describing important elements like fate, the dangerous femme, double crosses and the quicksand effect. He also explains god gaming, when a ''protagonist believes a false version of reality,'' which is in essence the key to the unease that characterizes noir. I can back up that subtitle, this is an essential reference for any fan of noir or crime movies. --Classic Movies blog

''John Grant's A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Film Noir will please newcomers and obsessives with the attention to detail and gorgeous photographs.'' --Campus Circle
