NOTHING IS SUCH AS IT SEEMS TO BE. NARRATION IN NEO-NOIR MOVIES
My thesis is devoted to narrative strategies in neo-noir cinema. Analyzing particular problems in postmodernistnoir films like The Usual Suspects (1995) by Bryan Singer, Fight Club (1999) by David Fincher, or Memento (2000) by Christopher Nolan, I prove that in spite of many differences, they can be acknowledged as a separate trend of the cinema, having its roots in the classic noir movie. Additionally, drawing a comparison of these images to the work from the film noir series of the forties and the fifties, I can demonstrate a postmodernist interpretation of narrative strategies that are characteristic for the noir films.
