Let’s think about how Double Indemnity belongs to the film noir tradition. Using any material you wish, including 1/30 and 2/6 PowerPoints, Nino Frank’s “A New Kind of Crime Drama,” Paul Schrader’s “Notes on Film Noir,” Angelica Jade Bastièn’s “The Nine Lives of the Femme Fatale,” or work from another relevant writer, comment on at least two characteristics of film noir evident in any scene of your choice. For example, you could describe the opening scene with Walter staggering into All-Risk Insurance and beginning his narrative voice-over, Phyllis and Walter’s first meeting, their second encounter when he reacts to her insurance scheme, her follow-up visit to his apartment, the supermarket scene, the closing scene, or another. Characteristics might include an urban setting, the use of shadows, what Schrader calls “a love of romantic narration,” the seductive presence of a femme fatale, hard-boiled dialogue, moral ambiguity—or something else. Feel free to incorporate items from “Anatomy of a Scene,” too, such as mood and soundtrack, subtext, characters and casting, setting, costumes, to enhance your scene description.
