DARK CITY LOST WORLD OF FILM NOIR
Welcome to Dark City, urban landscape of the imagination. A place where the men and women who created film noir often find themselves dangling from the same sinister heights as the silver-screen avatars to whom they gave life. Eddie Muller, who led readers on a guided tour of the seamier side of motion pictures in Grindhouse: The Forbidden World of ‘Adults Only’ Cinema, now takes us on a spellbinding trip through treacherous terrain: Hollywood in the post-World War II years, when art, politics, scandal, style–and brilliant craftsmanship–produced a new approach to moviemaking, and a new type of cultural mythology.
Dark City is a 1999 Edgar Award Nominee for Best Critical / Biographical Work.
