Crime Films by Kirsten Thompson
Book Description"Crime Films: Investigating the Scene" analyses the wide body of films that fall under the rubric of crime, from the gangster film to the film noir, and from the classic whodunnit to TV series like "Law and Order" and "CSI". Ever since Edwin S. Porter's "The Great Train Robbery" in 1903, audiences have been fascinated by films about crime, and the world as seen from both sides of the law. "Crime Films and TV" approaches the crime scene from the standpoints of the criminal, the crime and the crime-solver, providing the master plan behind the world of crime on screen. The criminal underworld takes on many forms, and this volume delves into recent developments in the erotic thriller such as "Basic Instinct" (1992) and neo-noirs such as "LA Confidential" (1997) and "Body Heat" (1981). There are also a number of close readings of some of the most enduring crime films, from "Seven" (1995) to "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991) as well as of TV series such as "Homicide", "CSI" and "Hill Street Blues".
