Fans of dark, stylish film noir can rejoice. The first Sun Valley Film Noir Series will bring some of the best of the genre to the screen at the NexStage Theatre, 120 N Main St, Ketchum. Screening are at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at Iconoclast Books, Chapter One and Frenchman’s Gulch Winery in Ketchum and Copy & Print in Hailey.
Founder Jeannine Gregoire brought the idea from Seattle where the Seattle Art Museum’s film noir series has been screening these moody classics for 37 years. The series, themed “Dark Dreams” this year runs Sept. 11, 18 and 25. The genre film noir grew out of German Expressionist cinema and then mixed with American pulp fiction. Filmed in black and white, the plots focus on sexual motivations for human behavior, especially crime, highlight the tension with high-contrast cinematography and then frosts everything with a good dose of cynicism.
This year’s lineup offers some of the cream of the crop.
