Classic Crime Cinema: The Cop Movies, Film Noir and Beyond

ID : 568   
« back to classes page
In the continuing Classic Crime Cinema study group, the films for presentation and discussion this semester will focus on law enforcement — big city police departments and federal agencies. In the first half of the semester, we will watch the film noirs from the 1940s and 1950s: such as The Naked City, The Narrow Margin, and The Big Heat. In the second half, we will watch post-1960 “cop” films such as The French Connection, Serpico, and Mississippi Burning. Some of these films should no doubt stimulate class discussion and debate on the often controversial issues of law enforcement.
