Mi sento inquieta, non riesco a stare ferma, quindi vado nello studio. A fare cosa ancora non so. Fisso lo scaffale, sposto i libri, come se cercassi qualcosa, e sto quasi cominciando a innervosirmi, quando intravedo una scatola di legno scuro. È un tuffo al cuore.

The 1998 second edition added chapters on sexuality and race, but seemed belated, emphasising the extent to which the first edition was establishing, 21 SHORT CUTS not following, trends. ) J. P. Telotte’s Voices in the Dark: The Narrative Patterns of Film Noir, a careful examination of the specific conventions of the genre’s distinctive narrative form, identifies ‘four dominant narrative strategies or discursive formations’ (1989: 12). First, most film noirs followed classical Hollywood third-person, ‘objective’ narration.
Narratives arise from the collision of different presumed linearities, hinting at the nonlinear determinism of emergent complex systems. Genealogical overviews of ﬁlm noir typically reduce 1930s Hollywood crime ﬁlms to the gangster cycle initiated by The Doorway to Hell (1930) and ended by the 1935 Hays Ofﬁce moratorium on gangster ﬁlms. Yet as early as 1930, Harry Potamkin identiﬁed another cycle of crime ﬁlms, including Underworld (1927), Street of Chance (1930), Roadhouse Nights (1930) and Ladies Love Brutes (1930), which by various means, such as ‘reducing the themes of gang strife to a love triangle’, shift and dissipate the ‘burden of social guilt’ (1977: 477).
As exempliﬁed by White Heat, ﬁlm noir’s recurrent conﬂict between the rational and the irrational sees the apparently determinist world disrupted, only for these disruptions to be revealed as arising from other determinants which were not taken into account: plans go awry, murder plots and minutely-planned heists go wrong, individuals refuse subordination to the gangster-corporation, coincidences and contingencies betray, but a new (narrative) order emerges. Embedded in many ﬁlm noirs is a clear sense of the inadequacy of models of linear determinism.
