The Endless Night: A Tribute To Film Noir

Film Noir is easily one of my favourite genres. The video below - discovered by famed Noir expert Eddie Muller - is possibly one of the best encapsulations of its aesthetics, its themes and its entertainment value. Apparently after finding this on YouTube, Muller invited its creator (20 year old Serena Bramble) to show it on the big screen in front of his Noir City film festival double features. This year's festival (held in San Francisco and in its eighth year) began on January 22nd and Maya at The Evening Class will likely be covering much of it until it ends on the 31st. Thanks to him for initially posting this video.

So enjoy the shadows, the gorgeous dames, the tortured souls and all those venetian blinds...
