A Panorama of American Film Noir addresses the essential amorality of its subject from a decidedly Surrealist angle, focusing on noir's dreamlike, erotic, ambivalent and cruel atmosphere, and setting it in the social context of mid-century America. Includes a film noir chronology, a voluminous filmography, a comprehensive index and a selection of black-and-white production stills.
