|Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)|
Growing up my father would watch Noir films and he would sit me next to him to watch it with him I honestly I hated them. When I was younger I thought they we're silly and not all that mind blowing like the movies from now, but as I got older I started watching the old Film Noir films that I use to watch with my father. Now I can say I appreciate the genre because of the architecture, fashion, and automobiles in that era of film.
Film Noir films represented how glamorous and advance Los Angeles was at the time, but now it's very different. It is more diverse and larger to what does films show. Before moving here I had this big idea of Los Angeles as a really glamorous city, but when I moved here my perception of the city changed because of the graffiti and homelessness in the city. Even though Los Angeles has changes to what it once was seventy years ago I can see how the different generations have influenced the city to what it is now.
I really enjoyed how the men and woman dressed at the time because it is a contrast to what people wear now. Everyone in that era looked very sharp and modern. Men looked like men and woman we're covered up, which I honestly like because I feel some guys dress like woman now, and woman really don't leave anything to the imagination when they dress anymore. I also like how cars we're disguised because they looked sleek and shiny compared to the soda cans we drive now.
If I could go back in time I wish I could be a film Noir director at the time and make films like Casablanca (1942) that are really dramatic and The Thin Man (1934) because I enjoy the detective movies of that era and I still do now. I would like to even re-make some films, but only if I had the time and money to invest upon.
