America doesn't have a monopoly on swaggering gangsters, larcenous lovers, surly ex-cons, corrupt cops, and scheming femmes fatales. The 2020 edition of Noir City will feature an array of classic films from around the globe—a wide-ranging, thematically cohesive immersion in a sordid world of sinister and sexy affairs presented by TCM host and Czar of Noir Eddie Muller.
"Now, more than ever, it's essential to resist the dread and paranoia of contemporary times by looking beyond our differences. Let's appreciate the noir ethos for the creativity it inspires and the warning flares it long ago flashed on screens worldwide. Noir has no national boundaries. It's the same story, everywhere."—Eddie Muller
