Noir Affect defines noir in relationship to negative affect. It traces noir’s negativity as it manifests in different national contexts and a range of different media. The forms of affect associated with noir are resolutely negative: loss, sadness, rage, shame, guilt, regret, anxiety, humiliation, resentment, resistance, and refusal.
