Please join me on Saturday November 3, 2012, from 11am-noon at Sonora's historic Opera Hall for my talk Film Noir: From Murder To Mainstream.
It is presented as part of this year's ITSA Film Festival in Sonora. I will be exploring one of my absolute favorite film (and literary) genres, noir, and its influence not only on the noted detective/"pulp" classics such as The Maltese Falcon and The Postman Always Rings Twice, but on contemporary mainstream cinema, from the "future noir" of Ridley Scott's groundbreaking science fiction movie Blade Runner to David Lynch's films, such as Mulholland Drive, and dark, intense dramas such as Christopher Nolan's Inception and even the major hit television series, Mad Men.

I'll be there at 11am on Saturday November 3 at the historic Sonora Opera Hall, 94 Washington Street, Sonora, CA 95370.
