Out of the Past . . . tomorrow at 12:30pm at the Palm Theatre

Out of the Past has all of the characteristics of film noir: a flashback structure, voiceover narration, a femme fatale, an urban setting, a private detective, an anti-hero, crime, a mood of cynicism and pessimism, corruption, moral ambiguity, fatalism, violence and brutality, erotic elements, a dreamlike quality, a hardboiled style of narrative and dialogue, and sometimes a hopelessly tangled plot.
