Film Noir (from the French meaning Black Film) is a genre of cinema that emerged during the early 1940s and continued until the late 1950s. It is characterised by it’s distintive stylisation of cinematography and it’s focus on crime, mystery and sex. Taking many cues from early German expressionism, Film Noir offered an immersive thematic experience that was very different to that of other contemporary melodramas. Several techniques and plot devices came to define the genre, including voiceovers, the inventive use of light and shadow, the protagonist’s need to seek out some truth, and the famed ‘femme fatale’ figure.
this is a question i’ve asked myself countless times as of late. when a situation is stressful and i’m about to let myself freak out, i take a step back and ask myself: “is this situation really going to matter in a year?” if not, i shrug it off. if so, i take appropriate steps to correct the situation and move on. i’m not perfect, but this one question has helped me immensely. why worry? why get angry? why be miserable? the things we get upset about on a daily basis most likely won’t matter a week from now, let alone a year from now. perspective is key. don’t sweat the small stuff, and the big stuff won’t seem as scary.
