I’m writ­ing my first se­ri­ous pa­per of the year for my film noir class. i’m writ­ing on Charles Vidor’s Gilda. When I first saw it 2 years ago i thought it was a film noir; now, af­ter a month or so of class i’m not so sure any­more. noir is such a neb­u­lous cat­e­go­ry, it might not be a cat­e­go­ry at all and al­though Gilda has some very dis­tinc­tive as­pects as­so­ci­at­ed with noir it al­so has some very un-noir char­ac­ter­is­tics. i’d bet­ter start writ­ing again.
