In John Dahl and Neo-Noir: Examining Auteurism and Genre, Paul Monaco provides a focused inquiry into the first three feature films that director John Dahl made for theatrical release: Kill Me Again (1989), Red Rock West (1993), and The Last Seduction (1994). The importance of these three films, and Monaco's investigation of them, is how they illuminate a modern director's creative process in relation to the emerging genre of neo-noir.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In his incisive and well-informed study of John Dahl's first three neo-noir thrillers, Paul Monaco uses close reading, background interviews, commentary, and theory to throw light on the idea of the director as author. What interests Monaco is the particular circumstances that enable a contemporary film maker to place his signature on a film. This book is for all those seriously interested in creativity, film-making, direction, and the movie business. -- Ian C. Jarvie, York University
John Dahl and Neo-Noir is a terrific book, carefully researched and keenly written. Monaco is a master at unpacking directorial nuance and production logic, illuminating how tightly film authorship and genre are woven together in neo-noir. -- John T. Caldwell, author of Production Culture: Industrial Reflexivity and Critical Practice in Film and Television (2008)
