The cinematic genre of the film noir and the literary genre of noir fiction arose from the evils of World War II,
from concern for the benefits & dangers of nuclear weapons, and from the fear & paranoia of the Cold War –
H.U.A.C. and McCarthyism and the infamous blacklist.

Central themes of noir include being set up for a crime one did not commit, of being lured by a femme fatale
into some trap, of being scapegoated by persons unknown, of Fate stopping the clock so that the protagonist
has only hours or days to solve his/her own murder, to catch the real criminal, and-or to save mankind.

"The American" [Focus Features Sept 2010]
The American 2010 movie starring George Clooney  This is a noir love story.

The attempt to kill an American in Sweden is unsuccessful; the assassin flees to Italy and hides out in a mountaintop village. He is a maker of illegal weapons, and can trust no one, not even the beautiful prostitute who has fallen in love with him. Co-produced by & starring George Clooney; directed by Anton Corbijn; script by Rowan Joffe, based on a novel by Martin Booth; cinematography by Martin Ruhe; also starring Violante Placido, Thekla Reuten, Paolo Bonacelli, Johan Leysen, Bruce Altman, Irina Björklund, Samuli Vauramo, Filippo Timi & Björn Granath
