Thoughts… On Genre

In light of some advice and the fact i feel that i need to comprehensively explain my point concerning the nature of genre i have decided to delay the completion of my article arguing for film noir to be understood as a genre. I will instead produce a series of articles explaining and exploring what genre is. I will put forth my belief that at its very core genre is a family-resemblance concept and that therefore film noir should be understood as a genre rather than just a ‘feeling’ or stylistic collective.
