I watched this movie because it was easy to watch for free, just putting it out there. So the first design concept i saw was one from the visual unit with the use of repeated shadows. He is in his office early on and the blinds are down but open. They leave a very distinct set of repeating lines across his body as he walks around giving the film a very mysterious and noirish feeling. It had the exact feeling like an old crime film should!! I also believe that this film better visualizes noir because it is in black and white, not because but like the fact it is in black and white just helps with the feeling. Also, with the black and white color is not really a factor, yes black, white, and gray are colors but they are not going to be the make or break between if something looks good or not in this film. I can tell that a film made back in the day had a lot less resources available in producing a movie so it was hard to get every little detail of what the director wants to be seen and how he wants the movie to feel.Somewhere in the middle of the film, he is at a train station headed to San Francisco, and they have to use a legit train and it is a classic style train, a steam engine even. It really help you understand the scene of the movie in the 1940’s.Going back to the shadows, every scene in an office has those shadows, they are vital to providing that noirish feel. Toward the end of the movie, i noticed all the furniture has a bunch of crazy designs and a fancy look to it. They almost look mobster like, especially when the people are smoking cigarettes while in them. They really show the difference in style from 1940’s to the modern day. Another place we see this change in style is their clothing! Anyways, i really like the old timey movies, especially the crime, investigative kind! This task was kind of interesting because i wasn’t quite sure how i was supposed to analyze the film, i think i did it right but i might have been completely wrong….
