Noirvember 2: How does a man decide in what order to abandon his life?
- John OwenUnited States
This is Year 2 of an attempt to continue the fall film challenge fun here on BGG, moving from horror to film noir, a side-step from the monstrous to the darkness of the human heart. All illusions stripped from us, we learn that the monster is us.
If you'd like to join me, here's what you should do:
Step 1: Add a geeklist item to this list
(it can be any game, but something noir-ish works best)
Step 2: Introduce yourself
Who are you as a film viewer? What are your tastes? What is your history, if any, with film noir? Favorite noir?
Step 3: Copy/Paste this form into your geeklist
Step 4: Watch as many noir films as you possibly can during the month.
Bonus Challenge: Read a book. Film noir is heavily reliant on literary inspiration. Many of the best noir films are adaptations of novels, some celebrated, some forgotten. I plan on reading Dorothy Hughes' In a Lonely Place this November. If you're so inclined, pick a book that has inspired a film noir that you love and read that book this November. I highly recommend Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, which provided the "tag line" title for this year's list.
