Asphalt Jungle

Many of the noir films we’ve seen thus far involve different lighting effects that affect the story line. For the first time in the Asphalt Jungle we have a scenery that can proably be used as a character in the story. Throughout the story we see characters dodging things in the scenes or using different things in the scene to aid them in hiding. This film is also different in that it is about a heist as apposed to other more common crimes in the other noirs.

    Interesting post, Christian. Can you say a bit more about how the scenery is a character in the film? And would you not be able to make the same claim for the scenery in some of the other films we’ve watched?
