Bright Lights Film Journal

Instagram Photo Series

Later this week, BLFJ will begin using its Instagram account to circulate various stills, photos, and images from classic and contemporary films from around the world. Each month, the editors will chose a theme and, over the course of the month, post images related to that theme.

Launching the series, our theme for May 2013 is “noir,” and we’ve collected two dozen images from a diverse set of movies including “greatest hits” like Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, Fritz Lang’s M, and Curtis Hanson’s L.A. Confidential as well as “deep tracks” from Anthony Mann’s Reign of Terror and Strange Impersonation, Samuel Fuller’s Underworld U.S.A., and Joseph H. Lewis’ The Big Combo.

If you have a theme suggestion, post a comment below, send us a tweet, or post a message on Facebook or Google+.
