Atelier d'écriture : Le film noir

Black is Black : le film noir, de Huston à Tarantino Le faucon maltais, Laura, Assurance sur la mort, Le grand sommeil… ont imposé, dans l’Europe de l’après-guerre, un nouveau style de polar baptisé «film noir». Signes particuliers: la narration complexe, l’image expressionniste et l’ambiguïté morale d’un univers placé sous le signe de la fatalité. Depuis le milieu des années 80, alors que les blockbusters d’action et le conservatisme reaganien dominent, les frè...

Milk Man

Director: James Rumsey.
Brian is a neurotic voyeur, trapped by fear in a routine existence. Fuelled by milk, each night he logs activities from outside his flat using a home-styled CCTV suite. His neighbour, Marina, likes Brian. She sees beyond his neurosis, to a man she’d like to know better. Brian likes her too, but is rendered dumb during routine doorstep encounters and so can never accept her hopeful invitations to share a cup of tea. Late on this night, Brian runs out of milk and must break his routine to venture out and get more. We join Brian the morning after, dishevelled, tired and with red stains on his usually pristine shirt. Flashes of what happened show Brian attacking a woman for the last of the milk.... A detective questions him.... No, a reporter.... With this reveal the night’s events are retold: a pregnant woman knocks some pasta sauce off a shelf as her contractions start and she doubles over in pain; she stumbles into Brian and drags him to the floor; in his struggle to get away from her Brian backs up into the sauce and it ends up staining his shirt. Brian, in a brave new world well outside his comfort zone, wants to run but chooses to stay and help the woman deliver her baby. In turn he gains a new, broader view of himself. The CCTV suite is turned off and he finally manages to stammers his way to accepting one of Marina’s invites for a cup of tea.
