Week Five, Only Topic

Watch either a War film made in the last 25 years or a Neo Noir film from the list, Neo Nior Films 1982 – 1999.pdf . (It cannot be your favorite movie.)

If you watched a War film, what does it have in common with the War films in the Week Five content? If you watched a Neo Noir film, what does it have in common with the Film Noir films in the Week Five content (other than being in color).

NOTE:  TO MAKE THE COMPARISON, USE A FILM, EITHER THE MOVIE, “THE STRANGER,” OR ONE OF THE  FILMS ON NOIR OR WAR FILMS IN ALTERNATIVE RESOURCES.

Now, “The Stranger” qualifies as both war and film noir and it is a striking film for its time period, shot in a film noir atmosphere but dealing with a war criminal on the run. I highly recommend it.

How does color play a part in the film you watched for this week? Identify at least three places that color stood out in the film.

Does there seem to be a predominate color or does a color seem to be missing from the film? If so, what is that color and do you think it had an impact on the film? If so how, if not why not?
