More ideas from Atharva
When I saw this picture, I thought it was a perfect example of how film noire uses low-key lighting to hint at what is going to happen without actually seeing it quite yet. The shadow of the man with the gun is perfect because you know something bad is going to happen, but you can't see who does it.

Hard shadows almost define the film noir look: be it the alternating patterns of dark and light slashes from venetian blinds to a silhouette of a man .
