I Found it at the Movies: Film Noir Reviews

A short, tongue-in-cheek guide to old classic movies from the film noir era. Like Pauline Kael only cooler!

Film noir (a term adopted well after these movies were made) represented a dark departure from the upbeat films that Hollywood produced up until the early 1940s. This collection of movie reviews provides a guide to some of most notable entries into that classic canon.

This book is the first installment of a series. The second book provides a handy guide to neo-noir movies. Also, check out the trivia questions. Test your knowledge. And stay tuned for more guides to the best and the worst movies Hollywood has created.

"Mack has an engaging, conversational style, much like a tour guide who introduces you to, and makes you fall in love with, a foreign city. Don’t be surprised if, halfway through reading this book, you abruptly begin searching online for noir titles to watch."

– Ruth, movie blogger at SILVER SCREENINGS

"I always loved the genre (though most of these I haven’t seen in 30 years!) and Debbi’s insights and thoughts on each really brought them back and made me think about them in a different light. There was also great background about the genre itself and the making/casting of the various films. I recommend it to any classic film enthusiast."

— Amazon Reviewer

"Definitely recommended for anyone like me who already has their head joyously full with black and white tough guy images, and wants to give the memory a fantastic jolt."

— F.R. Jameson, author of DIANA CHRISTMAS: BLACKMAIL, DEATH AND A BRITISH FILM STAR and CONFINED SPACES
