    Opera is sometimes defined as an art form where someone is stabbed and then sings an aria Perhaps a noir musical is where someone is shot and then sings.This was a frustrating book It could have been very good, because Biesen points out how flexible noir is as a category, and how close it connects with musicals Also, how important music is in film noir.Unfortunately, the book


  2. says:

    Exploration of the ties between Musicals and Noir is very thorough and presents some interesting viewpoints on pictures one might not instantly associate with noir Moulin Rouge, West Side Story The picture that the book revolves around is BLUES IN THE NIGHT and jazz plays a prominent role in Biesens well thought out thesis.
