Consider both the film noir “Title: They Live by the Night (1948)” and neo-noir title  “Jackie Brown (1997)” you screened this week, and discuss the similarities and differences that you find in formal and other qualities of either. Specifically, how is lighting, mise-en-scene, and cinematography used expressively to enhance the story in each film? Also, address any relationship between the content that they may share, such as the use of archetypes (femme fatale, morally  ambiguous protagonist, etc.), urban settings, hard-luck stories wrought with deceit, and so forth.
