Drawing on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Giorgio Agamben, The Dark Interval teases out the aesthetic and ethical significance of this strange sense of 'noir beatitude', which - via its own distinctive visual register - can be understood to respond to our current condition in a modernity that has become 'post-historical'. The book contextualises the iconography of film noir in relation to prior art-historical visual traditions, locating noir against a much broader visual canvas than has been the norm. Examining central noir films of the classic and modern era (The Killers, The Man Who Wasn't There) as well as films at the peripheries of noir (from Jacques Tourneur's Cat People to Wong Kar Wai's 2046), the book identifies a series of iconographic gestures, performance traditions, and affective tonalities that are specific to noir. It is a meditation that uniquely grapples with the look and feel of noir and which illuminates why film noir remains one of the most resonant and affecting visual milieus of our time.
