Quote from: thornlord on September 16, 2007, 11:32:20 AMWhile not directly related to Noir. I would like to recommend "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell" at least when it comes to some of the historical events that were forgotten by the current age. I plan on making that a large theme of my game.
Quote from: Ron Edwards on September 14, 2007, 07:37:00 PMMy top picks would be Cat People (1942) and Curse of the Cat People (1944), both produced by Val Lewton. (film fans should look this guy up)The first has very little in common with its flashy 1980s remake. It's really a hard-core, noir mystery, and turns out to be very sad, more of a black-magic romantic tragedy than a horror flick. The second is even more off the beaten path, and doesn't have much to do with cats at all - it's about an imaginative child, the ghost who may or may not live in the back yard, and the tensions of her parents. They are both really incredible stories about magic, horror, and genuine emotions, but also totally embedded in American lives and values of the time. They're shadowy, beautiful, and moody.Best, Ron
