11 Modern Film Noir Movies You Must See

Mon, 10/27/2014 - 02:43

The seedy underbelly of Los Angeles creeps out from the shadows in Nightcrawler, a new thriller that many are calling a modern film noir. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as an anti-hero loner and sociopath who enters the world of freelance crime photography. There’s blood, dark nights and darker morals, just as any noir-ish drama ought to have. There are tendencies for neo-noir movies to feel like they’re out of the past, set in the post-war period of the genre’s heyday, or to...

Fri, 10/24/2014 - 09:07

We don’t know a whole lot about Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which is amazing because it’s just weeks away from landing in theaters. What we do know is that it involves science fiction, with Matthew McConaughey and a crew exploring outer space in search of a new planet for humans to inhabit. However, it turns out the science might not be so much fiction after all. Physicist Kip Thorne is an executive producer on the project, and he spent months meeting with Nolan...

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 09:22

Earlier this year, we heard that David Fincher would only direct a movie based on the life and career of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs if Christian Bale agreed to star.
