Film noir is essentially a style, a night time film where shadows and murky grays predominate. Dim reflections and shimmering electric lights create an unstable, uneasy, disquieting space, a nightmare world of insecurity and danger. It was the qualities of unreality and threat in film noir and the themes of power and money that attracted Welles.
